The VA is improving because its using more private healthcare
washingtonexaminer | June 19, 2019
Recently, the battle over the future of veterans healthcare increased in intensity because arguably the two most prominent politicians in the country weighed in on the issue, Rep. Alexandria Ocasio Cortez, D-N.Y., and President Trump.At a town hall in April, Ocasio-Cortez criticized the Trump administrations efforts to expand healthcare choice for veterans through the Department of Veterans Affairs and said in regards to the VA that if it aint broke, dont fix it. It isnt surprising that Ocasio-Cortez would vigorously defend the VA while attacking reforms meant to give veterans more private healthcare options. Many of her ideological partners, such as Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vt., consider the VA a model government-run healthcare system and a positive example of socialism in action.
