President Obama stated in his last State of the Union focus on health care that the VA health care system offers the lowest "standard of care" of all the federal healthcare systems (i.e. Medicare/Medicaid/VA). Based on my own personal experience and in the words of the doctors and oncologists at the MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, TX, the VA offered me nothing less than a "death sentence" for my "service-connected" disease. Had it not been for my being eligible to enroll and be treated under the auspices of Medicaid I would not be alive today. The VA has some wonderful and caring people working at their hospitals but they are constrained in what they can do by the constraints put on them via the Congress.
