With the Countries purse strings back in control of Conservatives their long want is once again front and center!! Privatizing Government for Corporate profit and all the problems already within a cash rich private corporate enterprise brought in with little to no regulation and oversite, maintain the agencies as administrators, smaller government, so they have someone to continue blaming and attacking for their media hyped 'scandals' oft repeated over and over, they created and maintain!!
Since Jeb Bush's commented on his desire to privatize veterans' health care, over 20,000 veterans, military family members, and VoteVets supporters added their name to our petition urging all presidential candidates to come out against his wrong-headed plan to put corporate profit over care for combat veterans.
That number includes over 5,000 veterans who have received care from the VA.
Add your name and urge the 2016 presidential candidates to stand with veterans against the privatization of their care.
Privatizing veterans' health care and pushing them to doctors who often lack experience treating unique post-deployment medical issues will lead to diminished care.
There's still a lot of work to be done at the VA, but thanks to the efforts of those who fought back against attempts to block improvements to the system during a time of crisis, it's getting better. There's still work to be done, for sure, but privatizing it is the wrong answer.

Neither the long term results from, including the long ignored or outright denied existence of, till this Administrations Cabinet and Gen Shinseki, only Government branch consistent for the past six years, Veterans issues from!
As well as under deficits most of the, grossly under funded for decades and the wars from now, VA budget is still borrowed, with interest, thus added problem creating costs, with representative who control the purse strings blaming the mostly dedicated VA personal within, that shouldn't exist!
