Calling into Glenn's radio show on Veteran's Day was a young vet named Josh from Kansas, who became 100% disabled due to his service in Operation Iraqi Freedom. As one might imagine, top on his mind after the GOP debates was which candidate would do the most for U.S. veterans.
"I'm coming up through the VA system --- and I'm seeing a lot of terrors that are going on right now," Josh said. "I've done my research on the candidates, and I've stayed informed."
Then he asked Glenn for his opinion on something.
"Who is the best candidate in your view that's going to help us? Because we need some help right now," he said.
Surprisingly, Glenn pointed to a candidate who most likely won't win the nomination --- Rick Santorum. What makes his plan so great? He wants to shut down the VA, that's why.
"Rick Santorum is a guy who I believe understands the VA scandal and understands that what we need to do is shut the VA down, and give you guys access to private hospitals and the private health care system," Glenn said. "With what we spend on the VA, we could spend in benefits. And then have some real entrepreneurs and some real dreamers that could come in and specialize in things like PTSD."
Unsure of Marco Rubio's ability to seriously assist veterans, Glenn said he believes Ted Cruz would take care of vets and Ben Carson would be very well positioned to clean up the VA hospital. Watch the full exchange below.
