Top VA Health Official Outlines Five Ways to Transform Access to Care

Over the last few days, we’ve heard/read reports about how a little more than 300,000 veterans have died while waiting for VA Health care.

This article came out today and outlines five ways David Shilkin, the Veterans Affairs Undersecretary of Health, wants to fix some of the challenges the veterans have in the timely access of care.

That top article has been regurgitated by the Republican and/or Conservative media machines; however, after a quick search on both google and bing, its very difficult to find an obvious Democratic and/or Liberal media machine article on the topic. That said, on Morning Joe this morning, Joe Scarbourgh mentioned it in the shows closing. That was all I saw of the show though, so I’m not sure if they had a segment on this topic.

I bring this up, because it seems as if this should be covered by all media that cover veterans issues. I feel like if there’s only one side of the political machine covering it, one has to ask themselves why, and consider the implications.
