Bipartisanship on Veterans Issues

By July 19, 2017 VA Disability

The committees responsible for drafting veterans’ issues legislation have largely experienced bipartisan success.

For example, Dr. David Shulkin, head of Veterans Affairs, was approved unanimously.  Congress passed a temporary funding extension for the Veterans Choice Program along with a law that makes it easier to hire and fire VA employees.  And next on the agenda is a bill that will expedite disability benefits appeals.

Ideological differences still exist, especially over the Veterans Choice Program, since some worry expansion of the program will lead to privatization of VA health care.
