Choice for Vets

 

President Trump calls Veterans Affairs Secretary David Shulkin his "100-to-nothing man" because Shulkin was confirmed by the Senate 100-0. That unanimity is turning out to be a red flag. Shulkin is not delivering 100 percent for Vets. He told Congress last week that he plans to end the Veterans Choice Program, a setback for Vets stuck on waitlists for medical care. Shulkin, the only Obama administration holdover named to Trump's cabinet, is capitulating to the public employee unions and their Democratic lackeys in Congress who oppose allowing Vets to leave the VA and get treated by a civilian doctor on Uncle Sam's tab.

Legislation 002

 

The GI Bill is among the best known government programs of all time. Now it might be getting a tweak. U.S. Reps. Ted Yoho (R-Gainesville) and Brad Schneider (D-Illinois) have teamed to introduce the GI Internship Program Act, which adds an internship option for post-9/11 veterans who wish to take advantage of the popular GI Bill in a slightly different way. “It’s just a common sense approach,” Yoho said during an interview. “It just gives them (eligible veterans) greater flexibility.” The benefit can be used at colleges, universities, trade schools, as well as for on-the-job training, apprenticeships and flight schools. Benefits can be used to help cover tuition, fees, housing and books. Tutorial assistance, licensing and certification tests also are covered expenses.
