Veterans’ Health Bill Compromise Set After Weekend Talks

A compromise struck by House and Senate negotiators on Sunday on veterans’ medical care legislation would provide $15 billion in up-front emergency funds to help ease lengthy wait times at VA medical facilities, according to plan summary obtained by CQ Roll Call.

Niels Lesniewski reports that the compromise proposal would permit veterans who cannot get medical services at a VA facility or live more than 40 miles away to seek outside medical treatment.

The measure also would provide additional funding for the hiring of new VA health system staff.

    Hey would you mind stating which blog platform you’re working with? I’m going to start my own blog soon but I’m having a tough time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal. The reason I ask is because your design seems different then most blogs and I’m looking for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for being off-topic but I had to ask!

    Hi! I know this is kinda off topic however I’d figured I’d ask. Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest authoring a blog post or vice-versa? My site goes over a lot of the same topics as yours and I feel we could greatly benefit from each other. If you’re interested feel free to send me an e-mail. I look forward to hearing from you! Fantastic blog by the way!

    The other day, while I was at work, my sister stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a forty foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation. My iPad is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
