Should Wyoming VA’s Close Down And Privatize Health Care For Veterans? [POLL]
Recently, the MilitaryTimes stated that members of a blue-ribbon panel are looking into whether or not it would be better for VA's to close, and allow vets to privatize their care.
This has been a controversy and major discussion over the past years among veterans and administrators alike. The question is whether it would be better to shut down the Veterans Affair Medical Centers and allow vets to seek health care in the private sector.
Many veterans, such as, but not limited to: Disabled American Veterans (DAV), Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW), Vietnam Veterans of America (VVA) and Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) have been known to speak out against the decision, because decisions are being made "outside the open commission process...without the input or even knowledge of the other commissioner's."
The Commission has stated that their goal and vision is to enhance care to veterans, choice-quality and well-being.
So what say you? Should the Sheridan and Cheyenne Veteran's Affairs Medical Centers close down so that veterans can go to a private health care provider? Or should the government fix the mess they made?
Please take the poll, share the poll, and tell us what you think about it.
