I don't have to think about it, SHUT THEM DOWN! The VA has been out of control for years. Our veterans deserve the BEST care available not the third world medicine (if they recieve any care at all) they now receive. Yes, there are glimmers of good healthcare in a few spots but most care provided by the VA might be criminal in the civilian world.

Close down the VA Healthcare System (hospitals, clinics, CBOCs, etc) and give every veteran a healthcare card that they can use anyplace they choose. Allow veterans to have the same privilage that every other US citizen has, the right to choose WHERE they recieve their healthcare. They have earned that right.

There is no reason why these VA centers have to HIDE the truth. They deny accountability and they get away with it!!! Chop off the directors head and see what rolls down hill. This is just wrong on so many counts and needs to be exposed! These doctors are supposed to be trained in their field but how do you trust a doctor who kills patients? Accidents do happen but not at the rate these 'accidents' are happening! Make someones head roll! Show that you have a back bone instead of a cover up! Govt does this all the time and no one is held accountable? WHY? How do you trust a system that is killing people?
