Veterans Administration: An Example of Government Run Healthcare

It is my understanding that the Veterans Administration has the second largest budget in this country next to the Pentagon. With such a large budget why is it so hard to get an appointment? Why don’t they have enough doctors and nurses to take care of our veterans with a budget so large? In my opinion they must not have their budget priorities in the right order.

This is a nationwide problem, not just in Phenix where most of the news is coming from lately.

Bonuses to top VA officials who are manipulating wait lists could be used to hire more drastically needed healthcare providers so our veterans don’t have to wait so long for care.

Does the VA healthcare system need to be totally revamped? Why should our veterans have to pay the price to line the pockets of administrators who can’t do their job?

If this deplorable system for our veterans is an example of government run healthcare then what is in store for the rest of the country with the implementation of Obamacare? Will it be run any better? I don’t think so.

I am semi retired and had lots of free time on my hands. I still work part time as a bookkeeper at the little hardware store in our small town but I still had free time to fill so I became a blogger here at The Harley Factor. I also am a compulsive beader so I started a beading blog to show off my bead work call Compulsive Beading. As I have gotten older and mostly wiser I have become very opinionated on a lot of subjects and will share them with you from time to time when I can't keep my mouth shut. Kathy Sinclair

    Veterans Administration: An Example of Government Run Healthcare. Perfect example of what’s to come when Obamacare takes root. If you think that Obamacare will be treat you any better than all you have to do is look no further than the mistreatment of our veterans

  2. If big government runs the VA like this, what is Obamacare going to end up like? Thanks for the reblog

  3. How about the VA answering why, their system is a parachute for medical practitioners that have so much malpractice claims against them, that they cannot afford the insurance to be in private practice, and why many doctors have lost licenses due to malpractice but obtained a license from another state, but not any additional skills, so they run to the VA and the veterans are chained with bad medical care.
    The VA is only a drug pushing enterprise.

    • They should have to answer all of those questions and more. My fear is that this will never really get addressed and what makes us think that Obamacare is going to be any better. It won’t be. I hope the Republicans don’t pull back on repealing it if the get a majority in the Senate. Thanks for the reblog.
