Mr. Zbick:

The compensation of Administrator Sharon Helman tells you all you need to know about the VA. The only thing that matters is the high salary and the pension.

Doesn't matter how many bills you pass, who runs the VA, how much money you put into it, how many new doctors you hire, in 10 years it will be the same.

Only way to fix it is to privatize the VA.

They will never be capable of running or fixing it.

If you had a big-time medical problem, would you go to the VA?

I will take my chances at the Lehigh Valley hospital.

My dad spend all his life in the Army. Did not like VA hospitals then or now. He passed away in 1953.
