Is the VA in that bad of shape, or is that the media telling you to think that? I know there are stories, but there are stories from all systems where idiot providers do stupid things.
The info that is out there points to a US system as a profit driven system that is no better than it's counterparts in other countries.
We got here as a result of crony capitalism. I do not see a change in the system til it collapses.

It honestly doesn't matter.
Ideas of "The VA is single-payer" are nonsense.
The idea of single-payer is all inclusive, not exclusive.
To put on a number on it, this means 321,000,000 American's in the same pool, is what 'Single-payer' means. Anything else is anecdotal evidence.
