In the private sector the VA, this "business", would have been shut down & sold off for its assets long ago. Consider that a population of veterans currently using this government benefit service is near 7 million against what is budgeted & spent we would be able (& better served) to pay top rates for services from private sector providers and easily have millions of taxpayer dollars left over. The administrative culture at the VA is corrupt to its core. It's not likely to change ever. Repeal the laws that provide for the VA's existence. Incentivize doctors to treat veterans by establishing an insurance reimburance program that moves them to the head of the list of desirable patients. Additionally, use tax dollars to support scholarships for specialty education for medical students focussed on veteran needs.
