What Has Congress Done For Vets In Its First 100 Days?

Christopher Neiweem, contributing to The Hill, writes what the first 100 days of Congress meant for veterans:

“It is no secret that the continued backlog of veterans' claims, the careless overspending at the Denver VA Clinic, relocation spending and countless other self-inflicted wounds still hamper the VA from being efficient. While it is wholly correct for congressional committees who have jurisdiction over the VA to hold hearings and to investigate these and other missteps, they should also make sure that they continue to advance legislation that helps veterans and provides the secretary of the VA, Bob McDonald, the flexibility to correct course as necessary.”
