Despite adding his signature to the Veterans Administration (VA) Mission Act, President Donald Trump is now fighting a bipartisan plan to fund the much-needed expansion to veterans’ health care.
The bill, sponsored by Republican Senator Johnny Isakson from Georgia, became law on June 6. The Mission Act would establish community care programs coordinated by the VA, access standards for quality, and review the infrastructure of the current VA health system.
