The bill was introduced earlier this week to help get more veterans in to see V-A doctors sooner.

 

"This is Bernie Sander's bill, who is the Chair of Veterans.  It essentially is saying the head of the V-A needs more management capacity to get rid of high officials who are not performing.  And we also need to address the core of the problem which is the under provision of facilities and resources for the health of our veterans."

 

Part of the legislation would hire additional doctors and nurses to cut down on the current long wait times for so many veterans.

 

"We have an increasing numbers of veterans coming home from Afghanistan.  And they are facing significant health issues like PTSD and traumatic brain injury and a lot of support is needed to address demand."

 

The bill is scheduled to go before the Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Thursday.
