Suzanne Gordon is an award-winning journalist who spent five years reporting from inside the Department of Veterans Affairs. Her new book, Wounds of War, documents the VA health care system through the lives and experiences of the veterans who use it.
This important discussion necessary for all of us to hear around attempts to privatize the VA, opposed by Veterans groups, describes the work of the VA not only for Veterans but the everyday things we use developed in their research area, among other work by the VA. The VA gets a bad name–yet Suzanne Gordon advocates that the VA is the best model for an effective National Health Care system. The attempts to discount the work of the VA and privatize it are nothing more than more capitalistic greed–more capitalism on steroids.
