    And many people believe that the goverment should run all medical care. They can't even take care of veterans let alone the whole country.

    Whenever a government run program is rife with fraud, mismanagement and any host of other problems, the best and only solution MUST be to throw more money at it. Billions of dollars will fix it. That seems to fix everything else, doesn't it?

    SO IT'S THE REPUBLICANS FAULT? Wow, it will never be fixed until we stop giving out bonuses to people for doing their darn job!
    Give them the power to fire and you will see an improvement right away.
    Also, Doctors are handling about 1/5 of the patients that private Drs do.
    There HAS TO BE A SHAKE UP FROM THE TOP DOWN.
    There should be vouchers when needed for all vets who can't get in to see a Dr right away,

    How much you want to bet the House doesn't pass this measure but still continues to complain about the problem? I'll bet lunch.

    It took me nine months to get into the liver clinic at the VA after I came home from Iraq. But it was 2004 then and didn't make the news.
