The Veterans Administration is the people served Responsibility, not socialized anything. Not for corporate profit entity and not satisfied with the profits already generated in the private sector off of Military/Veterans R&D quickly integrated and used for all, but their Responsibility to Actually Sacrifice! As it's been since it was established but promises never completely upheld with congressional fixes coming mostly unfunded and peace-meal causing more problems, the way those served seem to really like it as they, and their Congressional representatives, lay blame on the VA personal!!

April 22, 2016 - It's been nearly two years since the Department of Veterans Affairs came under fire for the amount of time veterans had to wait to see a doctor. The agency scrambled to find a fix, including allowing vets the option of seeing a private doctor via a program they call Veterans Choice.
But the fix isn't working, so some VA clinics are coming up with other ideas to reduce wait times. In the city of Clarksville, Tenn., the VA clinic decided it simply couldn't take any new patients.
The facility is so overcrowded that unused wheelchairs are being stored in the hall, and nurses are stationed in what used to be a corridor. There's even a computer set up in what used to be a bathroom.
"This is actually a converted toilet," says Robert Lim, who works for the Tennessee Valley VA health care system, which serves tens of thousands of veterans in Tennessee and parts of Kentucky. "We're literally like sardine cans in here. You can't go around any place without bumping into somebody." read more>>>
