Time for VA to be dismantled and replaced with vouchers
Regarding the article “Flawed VA data include 300,000 ‘pending’ enrollment records for dead vets” (ModernHealthcare.com, Sept. 2), the Veterans Health Administration has become a glaring symbol of the U.S. government’s incompetence and the status quo. Here’s a large agency eschewing accountability while demanding more resources to “fix” problems that never should have happened. I have friends who work there and went there as a personal mission. Their morale is low because the VA is so big, so entrenched in valueless bureaucracy, so self-centric as to openly ignore its mission while institutionalizing inefficiency, waste and indifference.
The VA system needs to be dismantled and replaced with vouchers. It’s a national disgrace when it should be an organization demonstrating superlative care for our veterans.
