Congress must help VA

Who doesn’t want medical care for veterans? We should allow them to enroll in Medicare, a working system with good data transference from the VA. Most vets are happy with the VA’s quality care. While the VA roots out the administrative problems where scheduling disasters were exposed, Congress must also act.

In order for the VA to accomplish this and provide quality care to the increasing volume of vets from a 10-year war, the House must stop blocking all the bills and funding for the VA.

Congressional members who deliberately defund and hobble the VA are the same corporate puppets who want to privatize the United States. Hardly any of them have served a single day in the armed forces.
