Remember, without our veterans America would be less free, and maybe not here at all. Veterans deserve our thanks and we must be continually vigilant to ensure their continued care and dignity. The Veterans Hospitals are full of talented healthcare professionals operating in the quagmire of government bureaucracy. To improve healthcare for our veterans we must look to gradually remove government from the equation and replace government administered programs with private sector options. My design points for Veteran Healthcare include great care providers, flexible choices, and portability of care for Veterans.
