    That would require thought. And common sense. Which isn't very common these days in Washington, apparently. Cut benefits to veterans, or cut payments to defense contractors? I'm not even sure how that's a hard choice, or how they could possibly choose wrong, but it apparently is and they apparently did. Disgusting.

      VA healthcare has saved my life several times over and its at a basically spare no expense level. I know there may be cuts in other areas but benefits for veterans healthcare is not an area that gets short shrift to keep the cash flowing to defense contractors in my case.

      My wife also owes her life to care that is being provided regardless of cost, insurance coverage or how many other people need the same treatment.

      Republicans can do their worst to obstruct providers trying to do their job, hold up funding, or denigrate the efforts being made, but my sense is that dedicated health care professionals are finding ways to improvise adapt and overcome the infrastructure and staffing shortages and the funding is now there to keep up the good work.
