The reason the VA needs to be overhauled or replaced isn't because it's "socialist". (it isn't socialist) It's because the men and women who agreed to dedicated part or most of their lives in service to our country deserve GREAT medical care for the rest of their lives. That is one of the boons for military service. (hence why it's not socialist) The VA is not great medical care, and that is the only reason it needs to be replaced/overhauled. It needs to be replaced with something that IS great medical care for our vets.
You know I have checked who voted and how they voted, and there are 5 who disagree about eliminating the VA, yet I only see 4 names. Is there an invisible player here?
In my world, the man would pay the doctor, not the pig.
Don't know about "great", but they deserve a level of quality comparable to what everyday Americans with jobs get, not the third world crap treatment one naturally expects from a government program.
Given the example of the VA and only a fool would want the government running all the nation's health care industry. Is it any wonder they voted for Obama?

“I think if Thomas Jefferson were looking down, the author of the Bill of Rights, on what’s being proposed here, he’d agree with it. He would agree that the First Amendment cannot be absolute.” - Chuck Schumer (D). Yet, Madison and Mason wrote the Bill of Rights, according to Sheila Jackson Lee, 400 years ago. Yup, it's a fact.
