How can the VA be trusted to make the needed changes? I have one recommendation. REQUIRE every member of congress to recieve their healthcare from a VA or military healthcare facility. That's the only way they will see for themselves how flawed a system our veterans are dealing with. Instead of expanding the size of the VA, it's size should be reduced by giving more veterans the option to seek care where ever they choose to obtain it. This crap of waiting 30+ days or living more than 40 miles away is just not good enough.
