The VA is a long-standing, government-run Universal Healthcare System. It is a microcosm of what you would have if the government ran healthcare for everyone.
Then when we point out that Tri-Care is universal health care, you try to walk that back and blame the private sector.

Vets should never have to wait for financial or medical support - they offered their lives for the country and upon signing up to do so the government should be obligated to cover them financially - continuously - until after they are dead and buried.
The government started the war(s, the citizens answered the call to join the military and it disgusts me that the government is so consistently nonchalant about continued financial and medical support for returned servicemen and women.

Give it a couple of years.
They'll be justifying death panels next.

There's a reason why the VA is outsourcing most of its healthcare for the vets, thank god.
