"“But why can’t every veteran choose to go to any doctor he or she wants? …. I believe each of our vets knows a heck of a lot better what is needed for [their] healthcare than does some bureaucrat in Washington"...that is the FLAW in this statement. So you give vets the ability to go to any provider they want to, but you don't mention who is going to PAY for this. So we have a current system in place that does allow within reason a vet to go see a civilian provider with the knowledge the VA is going to pay for it. For those of you who complain about the ACA, going towards privation would be a step in the direction of having us on the ACA. Personally stop messing around looking for catch phrases that make vets feel good, but fix the system that has been broken since it's inception. Running from the problem isn't fixing it, it just lies in wait until another moment for it to rear its ugly head to screw up more lives.
