Given the many issues plaguing the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) - including unreasonably long wait times for health care and various problems with the disability application process - it is no wonder why many people are calling for the privatization of the VA.
However, despite these views, President Obama recently told a reporter from The Gazette in Colorado Springs that he thinks "[t]he notion of dismantling the VA system would be a mistake."
According to Obama, his administration has made progress in improving the VA, and changing the system now would only upset that progress. In fact, while he admitted that there is still a lot of work to do, he believes VA Secretary Robert McDonald has done a "terrific job" over the last two years.
Vets may still need help, even with VA improvements
Unfortunately, despite the government's best efforts, many problems continue to exist in the VA - meaning some vets still slip through the cracks, including vets seeking disability compensation.
