    Trump signs $55 billion bill to give vets more healthcare options

    Trump signs $55 billion bill to give vets more healthcare options, VA overhaul and more

    President Trump on Wednesday signed the VA Mission Act, a new bill that seeks to overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs and provide more healthcare options to veterans.

    The $55 billion bill will change how the VA pays for private care, expand a VA caregiver program for pre-9/11 vets and start the process of reviewing the overall infrastructure of the VA itself.

    The bill saw overwhelming bipartisan support last month passing in both chambers of Congress, and the legislation follows through with one of Trump’s major campaign promises to allow veterans more options for healthcare in the private sector.

    “In the campaign, I also promised that we would fight for Veterans Choice,” Trump said in a speech before signing the bill. “It just seemed to be common sense.”

    “It seemed like if they’re waiting on line for nine days and they can’t see a doctor, why aren’t they going outside to see a doctor and take care of themselves, and we pay the bill? It’s less expensive for us, it works out much better, and it’s immediate care. And that’s what we’re doing. So we’re allowing our veterans to get access to the best medical care available, whether it’s at the VA or at a private provider,” Trump said.

    “We must always protect those who protect us. Today, it was my great honor to sign the #VAMissionAct and to make Veterans Choice the permanent law of the land,” Trump tweeted.

    Some of the major points of the bill include the consolidation and revision of a number of VA healthcare programs, an expansion in veterans’ private sector healthcare options, and an intention to overhaul the Department of Veterans Affairs as a whole.

    Trump’s pick to lead the VA, Robert Wilkie, would lead these efforts if he is confirmed.

    “What a beautiful word that is — choice — and freedom to our amazing veterans,” Trump said. “All during the campaign I’d go out and say, ‘Why can’t they just go see a doctor instead of standing in line for weeks and weeks and weeks?’ Now they can go see a doctor.”

    “If the VA can’t meet the needs of a veteran in a timely manner, that veteran will have the right to go right outside to a private doctor,” Trump continued.

    The legislation also expands healthcare coverage to pre-9/11 veterans. Previously, the cost of in-home caregivers and other benefits were provided only to those who served after 9/11.

    “Because no matter where you served or when you fought, if you were in uniform — at some point, if you wore that uniform, then you deserve our absolute best. And that’s what we’re doing,” Trump said.

    I thought jared kushner fixed the VA months ago.. but really, trumpski is using tax payer money to try to sure up the November elections, it used to be called 'buying an election' but that was the old days when America was a democracy.

    I've always supported spending money on the Vets, in fact have always wanted more than just medical funding for Vets, but also housing for all Vets, and I mean 100% housing for Vets. The number of homeless Vets in America is a fucking mockery of what America is supposed to stand for.. we send them to strange countries to fight and sometimes die , but we can't seem to give them a home after they fought to give us a home.. & I don't care what potus is in office..

    healthcare aside cause I can go on for days about it. a lot of homeless are not veterans, they are claiming to be vets so you'll feel sorry for them and give them money. if they were disabled vets they would get monthly checks, and if they were disabled to the point they cant work they would get around 3k a month, also they can get paid from the state for disability. I know this is true because I used to volunteer at a homeless shelter, and I also get a disability check from the VA, and my dad is disabled and shouldnt be working but he started his own business continues to work, he barely gets up in the morning and just wont stop and retire. homeless people are mostly mentally ill. also be very cautious approaching homeless people, not only could the be mentally ill but they could be high on something too which is a dangerous combo.
    just a few weeks ago in ventura an man was carrying his daughter walking along the beach when a homeless man attacked him with a knife and killed him.

    Heckler, I have always liked your posts, but it is shit like this I can't stand.

    Ok, so you and your dad get disability? The definition of disability:

    "inability to pursue an occupation because of a physical or mental impairment; specifically : inability to engage in any substantial gainful activity because of a medically determinable physical or mental impairment that can be expected to result in death or to be of long continued or indefinite duration in ..."

    You're disabled, but yet you still work at a job and pull double checks. That is crookery and straight up shady shit. I have known countless people that do this. It is the reason why disability should be abolished.

    If you truly are disabled, you can't work.
