The deal is that the VA couldn't rely on funding to treat suffering veterans, making it really hard to get stuff done. This is the next step toward fixing that.

As President Talks Healthcare, House Says Yes to Advance Funding for VA

“Today, as the President committed to overhauling the nation's
healthcare system, Congress took an important step in reforming the way
the VA is funded. Advance appropriations means an end to years of late
budgets, and the rationing of care for our country's veterans. This is
a sound investment in the future of veterans' healthcare that will
benefit millions of American heroes,” said IAVA Executive Director Paul
Rieckhoff. “IAVA salutes Speaker Pelosi and Chairman Filner for their
leadership, and representatives from both sides of the aisle for their
support. We look forward to working with the Senate to ensure this bill
reaches the President's desk.”
