Military update: Budget panel eyes end to VA care for 1.3 million vets
from Hanford Sentinel
The House Budget Committee, chaired by Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., has told a veterans group it is studying a plan to save $6 billion annually in VA health care costs by cancelling enrollment of any veteran who doesn't have a service-related medical condition and is not poor. Committee Republicans, searching for ways to curb federal deficits and rein in galloping VA costs, are targeting 1.3 million veterans who claim priority group 7 or 8 status and have access to VA care.
