    to make more billionaires, that way he can charge 1 million to have access to him. He is working to privatize everything as we speak, that is why he put dept heads in to kill the departments. Say what you want about the VA, but they have been overwhelmed since the war in Iraq and then the ME and Bush Jr did nothing to remedy the situation, but Obama was blamed for it.

    Inside the Administration’s Plan to Push Millions of Veterans into Private-Sector Health Care

    Suzanne Gordon

    February 1, 2019

    The VA's plan to implement the recently passed MISSION Act could seriously imperil veteran health care—and push the department even further toward privatization.
    snip
    Veterans’ service organizations who lobbied for the bill are now equally concerned. In their Independent Budget for the 116th Congress, the Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), and Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) warned that the MISSION Act’s obsession with drive and wait times came at the expense of the individual needs of patients and the quality of private providers. In addition, these groups rightly fear that too much money for private-sector care will be siphoned from the VA budget. Finally, they argue that competency standards for private-sector providers should be “equivalent” to the high standards imposed on the VA. None of these recommendations were incorporated into the secretary’s new guidelines. As such, the groups cautioned that the MISSION Act could have “devastating consequences for veterans who rely on VA for their care” if poorly implemented.

    The VA should not be privatized. As for all that other crap, is it really even necessary?
