One of Donald Trump’s quests as president was to get better health care for our veterans.
It was well documented that veterans were waiting in ridiculously long lines, often leaving before getting the help they needed.
In some cases, this frustration led to suicide, as there was a rash of veterans killing themselves in VA parking lots.
Creating legislation that allowed veterans to seek outside care was a huge difference maker, but it appears that Joe Biden is now blocking veterans from being able to do that.
The law that allowed veterans to seek private care is called the Mission Act.
As part of that legislation, veterans were given website access to medical care in the private sector.
That link is now gone.
According to a Fox News report, the link was removed sometime in 2021.
The link now directs veterans to a page titled, “Choose VA.”
This encourages them to use VA hospitals instead of private doctors for their care.
VA Press Secretary Terrence Hayes deflected the question when asked about the new redirect.
Hayes stated, “VA is laser-focused on getting Veterans access to the best possible health care, whether that comes directly from VA or from the community.
“As a part of that effort, VA continues to implement the Mission Act faithfully, transparently and in its entirety.”
Hayes did say that the link is still there, only it is now buried on the community care page of the website.
To onlookers, this looks like an attempt to bury the link, in essence, undermining the law to force veterans to go back to the VA.
Darin Selnick, a senior adviser to Concerned Veterans for America, stated, “The Mission Act represents the ability to choose something other than VA, and they took it down.”
Let’s be realistic here… most people are not going to look for the link, especially when it is buried like this.
I guess we know where Biden is getting some of his money to pay for his precious illegal immigrants… from veteran health care.
