Marcus Luttrell, the former Navy SEAL behind the book “Lone Survivor,” has a great idea to quickly fix the issues currently facing the Department of Veterans Affairs: Make U.S. senators go through the VA to get their medical care.

“If you had to put people, Senators — if they had to go for their V.A. to get care, it would probably get fixed,” Luttrell said on “Fox and Friends” Wednesday morning.

He also suggested a more realistic solution to address the inadequate care some of the nation’s veterans are currently receiving.

Rather than being thrown into the VA system, he said every combat veteran who is in need of medical care should be given a government-issued card that provides coverage in the private health care system — “no questions asked.”
