first good thing that this republicans led congress has done. but this does not solve the problem, the problem is increased demand for care by aging vets, new vets from our misguided wars and pure lack of funding or administration of the VA doctor shortage. when you have long wait list, it means you don’t have enough resources to reduce the wait list. just like they have long claims, means that the VA doesn’t have the workers to process those claims. yet we have unemployment among vets in the high teens. this problem is congress fault, and they need to solve it without politic.
