    I'll stick with my opinions in posts 92 & 94. The non profit AL, DVA, and VFW are my advocates and I trust them.

    So you must be one of the 257 people who still trust Obama also.
    I'll make a note of it.

    My point was I use the VA and know several more that use the VA, not one has said they wanted it privatized. I don't know what the source is that said veterans want it privatized, I think most want the scheduling problems fixed and shorter wait times.

    To be fair though it is getting harder to see specialists in the private sector, when profit is the motive insurance companies will put up as many obstacles as possible.

    Ya, that is part of "service". It's usually not the actual medical care that people complain about, it's the delays and poor scheduling that is complained about.
    So if they can't get their crap together, maybe a private company will.
    Side note:
    If a VA hospital is not available to a veteran within a close distance, they should be able to go to any hospital in their community, and they could just send the bill to the VA.
    This needs to happen.....and soon.

    Please show me where in any of my posts on this thread did I even mention Obama? There are millions more veterans like me who do not want to see the VA privatized. Your type of posting seems to be fairly common. Instead of addressing my post you would rather attack or make wise cracks at me............ I don't have to make a note of it because I see you guys doing it regularly. When someone posts opinions different than yours you guys gang up on them with the usual liberal, socialist, commie, labelling.

    Actually the VA started a program (not sure if it's still being used) to use outside care in some cases and issued cards (Choice Care) but for me I stick with the VA.

    The Choice program is still active. I live 6 miles from a VA clinic and 10 miles from a Vet Center. But the nearest VA hospital is 75 miles away. I can use the choice program if I need to with prior authorization from the VA

    Let me see if I can find you room in a safe space. They are pretty crowded with Libs nowadays, so be patient while I look.

    That's a great written piece of drivel from the VA, Crystal, but just listen to Obama, he reads that written drivel to us also. Unfortunately most of it is never followed through with. Democrats are all talk, no action.

    I think that is a good idea. They deserve quick and local health care services.

    You quit posting before, because, once I posted the Tenets of Marxism- you admitted that most of the things you like we're on that list. You didn't like that being pointed out, you got mad, and you left.

    I don't care that you're liberal. Apparently you do tho, so your fight is with yourself, not us...

    You may be right but I don't recall getting mad about your Tenets of Marxism or leaving because of anything in particular that you posted. I went back as far as Feb 20 on my posts and couldn't find it. But since then I had made over 20 posts in this political forum. I stopped posting on Sept 22. So you may have driven me off but I can't remember it. Something about one of you guys questioning why I would be retired and still have a mortgage rings a bell. Anyway I think I give it a rest at times because I am thin skinned. I don't like the personal attacks and name calling.

    So often the conversation goes off the rails with side track insults. When you throw the insults around you have nothing serious to add to the conversation.

    Anyway in my life I can't speak for others Getting a Doctors appointment can take several days to weeks depending. Thats not in the VA .
    So waiting is a common thing for all of us. Call the docs office now and the machine answers and says if this is an emergency dial 911 otherwise you'll have to wait. So still with insurance sometimes you'll wind up having to go to the ER when you would rather go to the Doctors office.
    Thats just the way it is.

    We can't help that your side has trouble finding pals who are like minded and don't mind being wrong all of the time.
    And with the Liberal, commie, socialist labelling, .....when the shoe fits you have to wear it. Stand proudly behind your beliefs, we are just calling it the way we see it.
