"In regards to the VA, the answer is the same as that for the rest of the country. Put everyone on Medicare. Focus the VA on rehabilitating Wounded Warriors, dealing with those suffering from PTSD, and alcoholism."

Close but you left out a few specs as follows ...

"Putting everyone on Medicare" will work just fine for the average (Non-Service-Connected) Veteran but not for the Service-Connected Veterans (Post-Rehab), especially those sufficiently disabled to be eligible for full medical under the CURRENT VA System. Medicare shouldn't be the replacement for "Service-Connected" disabilities because there's usually a co-pay involved w/ Medicare. Service-Connected disability care through the VA is usually free of charge (i.e. no co-pay).

For the Service-Connected Veterans they deserve a simple card that says:
  • If sufficiently disabled (see above): "Go to whatever Doctor you want and the Government will pay for it"; else
  • If NOT sufficiently disabled (see above): "Go to whatever Doctor you want (for the conditions of your disability) and the Government will pay for it". Medicare is fine for the balance of their medical care.

Tams-

if so simple a solution, why did all the brains in party politics not come up with a solution in Congress?

Well for one thing, if the politicos did that for the vets then the vets would have a better deal (healthcare-wise) than the politicos do and so they're not gonna do anything like that, but that still doesn't mean they SHOULDN'T do it.

All the more reason to make sure term limits (and a whole slew of other limitations on the politicos) get instituted so the politicos lose some (much) of their juice.
