    not sure I'd want to fire anyway ... maybe phase out - would be a better term. Realizing it is a comfort to have for a physician, therapist or other healthcare professional to have experienced the military life, I'm not too sure that is a good thing all together. It separates us from the "norm" when all we really want is "good healthcare" just like the congressional people get. I'm wondering if outsourcing might be a better way for treatment with the VA Healthsystems becoming our insurance managers vs hands on caretakers. Just a thought!!!

    Unfortunately it is too many veterans who are causing

    all of the incompetency at the VA. They need more

    top quality doctors to run the VA divisions and especially

    to head the VA Secretary's office. Too many veterans,

    not enough qualified medical experts looking out for

    "patient care" and that's a fact. Where's Dr. Nancy

    Snyderman when ya need her ??
