Breaking: It’s Unanimous! The Senate Just Passed Another Campaign Promise!

By

President Trump is winning in all fronts. Winning against the deep state, the media, North Korea, Iran Deal, economy and much, much more.

The Senate has now passed a bill that would allow veterans to use private doctors and hospitals, fulfilng a Trump campaign promise.

As reported by thehill.com

The Senate easily cleared legislation on Wednesday overhauling medical care options for veterans, sending the bill to President Trump’s desk.

Senators voted 92-5 on the proposal, called the VA Mission Act, with only a simple majority needed to pass the bill. Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), Brian Schatz (D-Hawaii), Jeff Merkley (D-Ore.), Mike Rounds (R-S.D.) and Bob Corker (R-Tenn.) voted against the legislation.

With its passage, the bill will meet Trump’s public deadline to act on the issue and arrive on his desk before Congress departs for a weeklong Memorial Day recess. The bill passed the House last week in a 347-70 vote.

The sweeping, $52 billion reform bill would overhaul medical care options for veterans, including giving them more access to private doctors and hospitals.

The legislation was expected to easily clear the Senate and won the support of both Sens. Johnny Isakson (R-Ga.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.) — the chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the Senate’s veterans panel.

#Winning!
