Trump Joins List of Republicans Seeking to Privatize VA Hospitals

Donald Trump, along with many other Republicans, want to privatize Veterans Affairs Department’s hospitals.

“The VA system provides the best possible health care to veterans at the lowest possible cost. Veterans know this and that’s why they overwhelmingly want to keep the care they have,” said Union President J. David Cox. “Trump’s claims that privatization would improve care and cut costs are dead wrong. He is writing a blank check to huge hospital corporations to profit off the suffering of veterans.”

The plan would include actions such as: giving veterans vouchers to seek private care and letting them choose their doctors and clinics.

The American Federation of Government Employees and veterans’ groups are expected to lobby against it.
