Trump is good to veterans. His recently signed MIssion Act has gotten me some very expensive ($33,000 for a monthly injection) for my sever lung exacerbations according to my VA pulmonologist. SHe said it would have been very difficult for me to get this medicine a few months ago, but the Mission Act really streamlined the process.

Nope, that's not right.
The Mission Act was set up to create revenue streams for Trump's corporate cronies in the very same way that DoD cut troop strength levels back in the 1990s [mostly the clerks and the jerks -- admin services, chow hall, billeting, transportation, etc.) ... and replaced them with defense contractors like Halliburton to provide those same services at higher, marked up prices.
The Veterans Health Administration was treated the same way by the Mission Act.
VA has 41,500 unfilled medical jobs, forcing vets into costly private care
Study after study in out most prestigious medical journals, going back to 2005, have continuously concluded that VA Healthcare is better for veterans than what veterans can get in the private sector -- and I've posted these studies zillions of times.
Question: Why does our Congress always want to send veterans into the private sector for costlier and less quality healthcare, when Congress could strengthen the VA so veterans can get less expensive higher quality healthcare?
Answer: money - our government is corrupt
And it's not you who is getting paid.
It's good to hear that you got your pulmonary situation treated in a timely manner.
