va budget

House Republicans have requested nearly $3.3 million to operate the select committee investigating Benghazi, which gives the GOP-launched committee a bigger budget than that granted to the committee overseeing the troubled Department of Veterans Affairs.
A spokesperson for committee chairman Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) told USA Today that the number is a "high end estimate," and
We need a solid promise of sufficient, timely and predictable funding for Veteran Affairs in order to meet the needs of a new generation of returning veterans as well as those of previous eras.
Apparently, Congress is too busy fighting about Rush Limbaugh's comments or MoveOn's latest ad to solve the problems facing veterans.
