I don't spend any time at the VA personally...BUT my father does, and he said he has seen a noticeable improvement. The general consensus is that things are better (far from perfect) than they were over the course of Obamas 8 years. Setting partisanship aside, can we agree that improvement is a good thing? Trumps worst critics are quiet on this issue because there's been improvement.

crack down on sex trafficking
good point - lots of politicians going to jail lately. never thought of it that way
Show me how the VA is better. I'm there every week. You?
Do not agree
The disparity continues...and has since Vietnam. Improvement, moderately speaking, is subjective. Giving trump credit for improvement at this point is ridiculous. Or have you forgotten about Zinke, Pruitt (and his successor), and all the other folks waiting to slash and burn through natural resources for profit? Perhaps you've forgotten about trump's massive hesitation to pay donations into a veterans fund while campaigning? Maybe you've also forgotten his personal stance on military service to one's country when called upon. Or how great Paul Ryan has been to vets.
Don't worry - veterans haven't
One other thing - how are you able to deduce that "the general consensus is that things are better" at the VA, when you only know one person who goes? Until you have more than someone's opinion on the matter, I'll continue to understand you have no idea what you are talking about.
That is the problem today - opinions being masqueraded as facts.
This is Almighty - standing by, over.
