Donald Trump's released his plan to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs on Saturday. His plan would fire some of the department's executives and increase funding for treating post-traumatic stress disorder and job training for veterans.
"The VA healthcare program is a disaster. Some candidates want to get rid of it, but our veterans need the VA to be there for them and their families," Trump's plan reads. "We must care for the whole veteran, not just their physical health. We must recognize that today's veterans have very different needs than those of the Greatest Generation."
Trump's plan centers on three points, which he identified as ensuring veterans get the care they need "wherever and whenever they need it," supporting the "whole veteran," and "make the VA great again." His plan does not describe the last time he considered the VA to be great.
His plan details several goals, including offering women's health services at every VA hospital, hiring more veterans to serve at the VA, and embedding satellite VA clinics in rural and underserved areas.Read more on WashingtonExaminer.com
