Should health care for military vets be privatized?

Apr 2, 2018

Kim Malcolm talks with Marine Corps veteran Josh Penner and Navy veteran Rebecca Murch about the potential impact of privatizing healthcare services provided by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs.

Penner is the Mayor of Orting, Wash. and runs the PNW Veterans Coalition. Murch is executive director of Seattle Stand Down.

Last week, President Trump fired VA Secretary David Shulkin. Shulkin said he was fired because the Trump administration wants to privatize the VA healthcare system, which he's opposed to.
