The va system has been in serious need of overhaul for years .. lost several friends over the years due the incompetence of va doctors .. they should let veterans get tricare like the retirees do at least then the veterans would have a chance at better healthcare than what they endure now ..

I have a solution to this problem and many others - Universal Single Payer Healthcare in the US.
No more VA, no more WC, no more medicaid. Medicare for all. Everybody pays - personally and businesses and everyone is covered - no co-payment, no complicated forms, no crap.
I grew up military - we only went to base hospital or clinic for the most trivial of complains and never a service dentist. We paid out of pocket.
Do I think veterans should be covered - yes and everyone else. Do I think verterans deserve excellant care - yes and and everyone else.
