The Problem: the High Cost and Low efficiency of Veteran Health Care.

One person's solution to the cost of VA Health Care: 

 

1.      I condone the use of a Government Health card that would pay for all Veteran health care 100 percent at any U.S. Hospital and with any U.S. doctor! 

 

2.      Sell all Veteran Affairs Hospitals, land and equipment to the private sector.

 

3.       Lay off all Veteran Health Administration staff. With    the great training these people got from the VA they    should have no problem finding jobs in the private    sector.

 

4.       With the money that is saved, pay private hospitals and doctors for veteran health care.  This would be much more efficient and cost effective.

 

These are all just ideas of course and my opinion.  I think we should all be willing to work together to solve the problem. 

 

I have identified the problem and I have come up with a possible solution. Please give all of this your deepest consideration.

NEWS ALERT : BUDGET DEAL REACHED

House and Senate leaders today reached a tentative agreement with the White House to hold FY08 spending to $936.5 billion, which is $3.7 billion above President Bush's request, sources told CongressDaily. The extra money above Bush's top-line would be solely for the Veterans Affairs Department, in keeping with the Democrats' pledge to provide the largest increase in the agency's 77-year history. The White House also agreed to emergency spending above that top-line, although the final package had not been settled. The measure will be on the House floor Tuesday and the Senate is expected to clear it by the end of the week.

A fuller story will be posted soon on CongressDaily's Web site.
