Trump signs bill helping vets get access to private medical care

by
August 13, 2017

Donadl-Trump-8President Trump signed into law a bill providing over $2 billion to open new Veterans Affairs department medical facilities and fund care for veterans seeking medical care outside the government system on Saturday.

“This bill will ensure that veterans continue to have the ability to see the doctor of their choice,” Trump said during a press conference at the bill’s signing. “You’re going to have immediate medical care for our veterans.”

The legislation, which passed the House unanimously, provides funding for veterans who seek treatment from a private doctor in certain cases. It also allows the Veterans Affairs department to lease 28 new facilities around the country, in an attempt to expand access to government-provided care. That makes it a compromise in the larger debate between conservative and liberal proponents of VA reform.

“We’re grateful President Trump is taking decisive action to ensure veterans using the Choice Program won’t see lapses in their care due to a lack of funding,” Dan Caldwell, policy director for the conservative Concerned Veterans for America said of the bill signing. “Unfortunately, this bill took far too long to get to the president’s desk and is $1.8 billion more expensive than it needed to be.”

    PRESIDENT TRUMP NEED TO SIGN ONE BILL ONLY, ALLOWING VETS TO GO TO ANY DOCTOR, HOSPITAL, OR PHARMACY OF THEIR CHOICE. GETTING MEDICINE COULD BE THE MOST IMPORTANT OF ALL OTHERS. MOST VETS LIVE CLOSE TO HOSPITALS AND DOCTORS AND THAT IS GREAT, BUT WHEN YOUR MEDICINE IS PRODUCED OUT OF THE COUNTRY AND IT TAKES WEEKS TO GET IT FROM AZ.OR NV. AND THEY WILL NOT NOTIFY YOU WHEN YOU RUN OUT. CVS, KROGERS, WALGREEN AND MOST PHARMACIES HAVE A SYSTEM THAT CALL YOU AND REMIND YOU TO PICK IT UP, VET DO NOT. THIS WOULD SAVE THE TAX PAYER BILLIONS, WE DO NOT NEED MORE CLINICS, WE HAVE GOOD DOCTORS, HOSPITALS AND CLINICS AND DO NOT NEED MORE.

      What did the article say? Trump is going to sign the bill giving Vets the ability to use their own doctors. After all yopu posted go back and read the article again.

    This President is doing everything he can to help our veterans. He is fulfilling his campaign promises. He will complete all of his campaign promises if Congress has any guts. The establishment can’t deal with a man that wants to do what he said he would do. This President is doing all he can, but the same Republicans he helped to get elected and promised to get rid of Obamacare have no guts at all. They campaign for years and pass bills they know will get vetoed. When the rubber hit the road, they went flat and cowered out.

    • keedon

      Since it is the Republican controlled Congress who creates these bills and passes them on to Trump to sign it isn’t Trump accomplishing this. When the Republicans took control of Congress in 2012 under Obama they couldn’t get anything passed because Obama vetoed everything.

      • itsfun

        What did this courageous Congress do when they got the chance to repeal and replace Obamacare? What did they all campaign on getting done? Now that they have the support of the President, they are showing their true colors. They passed repeal when they knew it would go nowhere and win them some votes. The President has an agenda the citizens of this great nation elected to pass his agenda. If he does what Reagan did and takes his case straight to the people via TV, the Republicans will do what they were elected to do.

          Just like John McCain who was for repeal of Obama Care and then he came back with his brain tumor (which will get him 0 sympathy) and voted to keep it.

          • keedon

            McCain was never for the repeal of Obamacare even before his tumor. McCain has been a thorn in the side of the Republican Congress for a long time.

        • keedon

          They only now have the chance to repeal Obozocare. Six Republicans stand in the way. Don’t attack the rest over those six. You only give the Demwits more ammo to point at us Deplorables.

          • itsfun

            If the Republicans can’t get their own house in order, then they need to be replaced. They are the best reason for more TEA Party candidates.

          • keedon

            The Tea Party of which I belong isn’t going to get more candidates if the people of the States they are running in won’t vote for them.

          • itsfun

            Then, we need to give them reasons to vote for us.

          • keedon

            And what would you suggest? The Tea Party has been around for years and is becoming extinct. When you have people like Waters, Schumer, Piglosi et al who keep getting re-elected it shows that us Deplorables can’t get rid of the Demwit morons.

          • itsfun

            First I would suggest we get the RINO’s out of office. We need to run good candidates against them in the primaries. Then we need to monitor the elections for fraud in the case of Waters for sure. I can’t believe any thinking people keep voting for her. Look at where Waters, Schumer and the Pig are from. Those are liberal strongholds.

          • keedon

            Sorry but you are just repeating over and over what has been said for years. Actually getting it done is much harder than talking about it.

      • gvette

        It’s his leadership getting it done. Gay Barry Omuslim hates our veterans! That’s why he wouldn’t do anything.

        • dmttbt

          If the republican majority meant anything they would not have let the country get in the position it is in. They pledged to support Trump and then when it comes to the point of backing him they have a knife in his back.

          • gvette

            Yes, the RINOs have shown their true colors. Trouble is, they’ve also screwed the the people of this country!

          • keedon

            The Republicans didn’t put this country in the disaster it is in, Obama did. Trump isn’t God and without the support from the Republican Congress can’t do a thing. The Congress put Gorsuch on the SC, Trump only suggested him.

          • dmttbt

            Wake up please, the shitty situation we are in didn’t just recently happen. We have had politicians promising and then they just run for reelection for many years and it has been the same promises over and over. I keep trying to have people see that it is one big happy crime family and yes you would not try to stop them if they could have you killed and have been guilty of that very thing.

        • keedon

          All Trumps leadership won’t do a thing without the Congress creating the bills for Trump to sign. Congress has passed Trump many bills and he has signed them.

    • keedon

      Trump can only complete his promises when the Republican controlled Congress creates the bills for those promises and Trump signs them.

          OK, let me see, my best friend, my cousin, my neighbor, my aunt, my brother, my uncle, etc. how about me? OR you? How about Richard Cranium?

      • itsfun

        I am saying don’t blame the President for the failures of Republican Senators. If the Republicans don’t fulfill the promises they made to win election, then we need new Republicans. RINO’s are the best argument for the TEA party.

        • keedon

          I’m not blaming the Prez for anything. If you read what I posted I am asking everyone to stop blaming the Republican Congress who are doing everything possible to support Trump. Just because a few rotten Republican apples are making a lot of noise and interference doesn’t mean most bills aren’t being created by the Republican Congress and then signed into law by Trump.
