Veterans Health Administration Under Attack

Healthcare journalist Suzanne Gordon, author of The Battle for Veterans’ Healthcare: Dispatches from the Frontlines of Policy Making and Patient Care, and The Nation article America’s Biggest Publicly Funded, Fully Integrated Health-Care System Is Under Attack, discusses the efforts to undermine and privatize the VHA, our nation’s largest publicly funded, fully integrated health-care system. Suzanne urges us to fight to save the VHA - the closest thing to a European-style national health service the United States has ever produced—a working example of single-payer financing that has broad popular support among the millions of patients covered.
