"What a beautiful word that is — choice — and freedom to our amazing veterans," Trump said at the signing ceremony. "All during the campaign I'd go out and say, 'why can't they just go see a doctor instead of standing in line for weeks and weeks and weeks?' Now they can go see a doctor."REMINDER: THEY SHOULD NOT BE TREATED LIKE EVERYONE ELSE, AND OH, BY THE WAY...THEY ARE WAITING IN LINE BECAUSE OF CONGRESS!!!!
If the person you elected had voted against Affordable Care Act Vote list then turned around to support sending veterans into the same situation, they need to be publicly humiliated!
Why? Because apparently they thought this healthcare coverage was so bad for us THEY DECIDED TO PUT VETERANS INTO THE SAME MESS and this is the result!
The Government Accountability Office, Congress’ auditing arm, found veterans often had to wait between 51 and 64 days for appointments with private doctors under the Veterans Choice program. It cited a lengthy scheduling process that took as long as 70 days.When they decided to treat disabled veterans just like everyone else, they hoped we'd be too stupid to notice what billions paid to private companies could have do to fix the VA for all veterans.
Then again, we were too stupid to notice that Congress has had jurisdiction over how we show veterans what we think of them GOING BACK TO 1946~
If this is not enough for you to actually hold them accountable, watch this video from a couple of years ago. Veterans should never have to take this betrayal! They did their jobs! Make members of Congress do their jobs!
And yes, they are helping each other out of the dumpster!
