This is a “better deal”? #Democrats screw veterans

House Democrats voted to deny GOP leaders big-enough majorities to restore funding for a key veterans health care program.

Democrats united to defeat a $2 billion bill to replenish for six months the emergency Veterans Choice Program, which subsidizes private medical care outside the Veterans Affairs Department for veterans facing lengthy wait times and is set to run dry in August.

Following the vote, House Veterans’ Affairs Chairman Phil Roe (R-Tenn.) fired back at Democrats, contending the bill had bipartisan support ahead of Monday’s debate.
