Senate Discussing VA Overhaul Bill

The fight begins to get quality, timely care to neglected veterans across the country.

Senators are expected to discuss a new bill.

It would aim to take care of short-term health care needs of veterans who weren’t getting help from the VA hospitals.

A federal investigation revealed more than 1,500 veterans in need of care waited much longer than what the hospital was reporting.

The Wall Street Journal says the bill would allow veterans caught up in the long delays to seek care outside of the VA system.
