Veterans Feel President Elect Trump Will Dismantle Their Public Medical Health Care

Exit polls show Donald Trump beat Hillary Clinton two to one among veterans, and analysts say they may have delivered the presidency to Trump because of the high percentage of veterans in Wisconsin and Michigan.

"He never made really explicit promises beyond the promise that if you could not get an appointment quickly from the [Veterans Administration], that you could go see a private doctor," says longtime veterans’ affairs reporter Aaron Glantz.

"This has a lot of people worried that he will dismantle the VA system, which was built up over many generations, a national network of hospitals and many dedicated professionals who are real specialists in the needs of people wounded in war."
