Big deal for vets, VA funding freed from politics

Check out the latest from the Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America:

On Wednesday, IAVA’s Executive Director and Founder Paul Rieckhoff joined Speaker Pelosi as she sent an Advanced Appropriations bill
to President Obama for his signature.   The bill requires Congress to
pass the VA’s budget a year in advance.  Congress has been consistently
late in passing the VA budgets – in fact they have not passed this
year’s budget.  Budgets are often late because of Washington DC’s
divisive and partisan politics. And a late VA budget means  the VA
cannot effectively plan and provide health care for veterans. They
often have to ration care.
