    When was the last time she received care in a VA hospital?
    When was the last time she stepped foot in a VA hospital?
    When did she serve / earn her VA status?

    So, the idiot who says we are going to upgrade or completely rebuild every building in the United States while winning the battle against cow farts to ultimately defeat Global Warming - in the next 11 years or we will all die - says VA Health Care is 'perfect'?!

    :wtf:

    I'm a vet ENTITLED to it, and I avoid it.

    I'd rather pay out of pocket than rely on gov't.

    Now I do have a buddy who is a 'Nam vet, and they've managed to keep him alive for a long time with COPD, but his experience is the exception compared to most other old vets I know. There are also countless stories of people deliberately left out to die.

    We're talking about one of the most ignorant bed wetters in DC though, she might believe the gov't provides quality service, but most democrook political whores are marxist sociopaths who view individual people as a resource, like cattle, and don't give a shit about losing some.

    Shit...

    I'm convinced plenty of leftist sociopaths are deliberately working to cull the herd.

    To speak of the VA as a single entity is to not understand the VA. While they are trying to change it now, previously each VA medical center was its only little fiefdom, with the director basically acting as god and making all the decisions.

    Thus there were some amazing VA medical centers and some terrible ones. I know people that choose their retirement location based off of the locality of a good VA medical center. The one in my local area is pretty good, I know a fair number of people that choose to use it.

    Well. If you run a forklift at Bragg for 4 years I can't see you deserving anything but a job at Home Depot and let them provide. Fucking socialists.

    A real combat vet is another grade of coverage.Especially mental assistance since they had to be mentally ill to follow orders to go to the M. E. clusterfuck

    The VA takes care of my medical needs 100%

    The Doctors, the Techs, the skilled people? IMO, about as good as it gets.

    The Bureaucracy? Horrible. Bad, really bad.

    I got called in for a Lab last Month and nobody knew what it was for.

    But I will tell you this much, in all fairness to the VA..... I had to have a Hip Replacement (just shoot yourself, it's less painful) and the VA Hospital I stayed at for almost a week (Bay Pines) was, without a doubt, not even close -- The Best Hospital I've ever had the misfortune to stay in.

    OTOH, after the Lying Cocksucker instituted the Veterans Choice program, the VA sent me through the system without my knowledge...... Seems they get graded on how long a Vet has to wait for Service and the Choice system doesn't count against them. Complicated. And stupid beyond belief.

    I had a Kidney Stone stuck in my Ureter for FIVE FUCKING MONTHS?

    People, if you've never had one, you don't want to know, you can not imagine the pain. The only pain worse than a kidney stone trying to pass through your ureter is being burned alive. true fact

    FIVE MONTHS!!

    Like I said, the Doctors, the Nurses, Techs, etc? Pretty darn good.

    The Bureaucracy? Beyond stupid. Beyond belief stupid.

    Had I known they were as bad as they are, I would have opted for the Top Notch Medicare Plan that pays 99% of your bill. But I don't think I can anymore. Thanks to the Lying Cocksucker. That faggot stole BILLIONS from Medicare for his STUPID FUCKING ACA

    So, love it or hate it, I'm pretty much stuck with the VA.

    Thank God we have a President that wants to fix it because if it weren't for him, we'd be hearing about Veterans killing themselves every day in VA parking lots.

    Veterans are committing suicide in VA parking lots: report
