Letter: U.S. veterans deserve medical care, not bureaucratic red tape

Close the VA hospital doors

As a disabled veteran with 24 years of military service, I believe we should get rid of the huge unmanageable bureaucracies created from the veterans’ hospitals.

Obama will not fix this chaotic mess or our government, but wants to sweep this scandal under the carpet. Our veterans deserve the same medical care as our population — at government cost for services that were promised.

Thousands of former military personnel languish on lengthy lists waiting for health care, and that should not be.
