Trump Releases VA Reform Plan

Businessman Donald Trump released his proposal to reform the way health care is provided to veterans. The Washington Post reports:

Trump announces plan to improve veterans’ health care

Donald Trump, never one to do anything small, on Saturday chose one of the largest battleships the Navy has ever built to roll out his plan to “make the VA great again.”

At a rally beside the USS Wisconsin, the leading contender for the Republican presidential nomination promised to remake the troubled Veterans Affairs agency.

Billed as “the Trump Plan” in keeping with the billionaire developer’s habit of naming things after himself, the initiative would allow veterans to get medical care from any doctors or medical facilities that accept Medicare. It also would give veterans education benefits, business loans, job training and placement services to ease their transition from battlefield to civilian life.

The details of the Trump plan are here on his campaign website.
