One thing I haven't seen addressed in regard to single payer

How would this effect the size and budget of the VA and if the VA were downsized what would be the overall effect on health care costs? What percentage of the VA is devoted to programs unrelated to health care?

Oath of enlistment

I, _____, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; and that I will obey the orders of the President of the United States and the orders of the officers appointed over me, according to regulations and the Uniform Code of Military Justice. So help me God."

"all enemies, foreign and domestic"

We keep the oath even after 50 years and there are millions of us. Sleep well you Traitorous Russian Stooge. And Oh yeah-the Russian "help" means you are not actually my president.
