In the first ten days of 2018, President Trump has done more for veterans of our armed forces than Obama ever did in eight years.
Our nations heroes have seen a monumental shift away from a former president who put them on FBI watch lists as domestic terrorists to a current leader who cherishes their selfless commitment to our collective security and strength.
The Washington Examiner reports that a bill signed last August went into effect this year and delivers “$2 billion to open new Veterans Affairs department medical facilities and fund care for veterans seeking medical care outside the government system on Saturday.”
The backlog of cases, some of them ending tragically, is well known. President Trump, ever the business-minded efficiency expert, proposed alleviating the bureaucratic-induced case pile up by proposing a free market solution and this has liberals scared.
Rick Weidman, legislative director of the Vietnam Veterans of America told the Examiner with no elaboration provided, “You ain’t seen nothing yet if you send people to the private sector.”
Indeed. We might see deaths…of bureaucratic jobs.
The law, which garnered unanimous support in the House of Representatives on the way to its passage, allows patients of the sclerotic Veterans Affairs health care system to seek medical care from private doctors in certain cases, while leasing out 28 VA facilities to private operators.
