On Tuesday, Feb. 4, U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) - a member of the Senate Appropriations and Veterans’ Affairs Committees - spoke on the Senate floor about the President’s budget proposal to reallocate Choice Act emergency funds that are solely meant to pay for veteran health care. When Congress passed the Choice Act, veterans were told they would now have a choice when it comes to their health care – that many would have the option of seeing their local physician. Now the VA is trying to take that away and Sen. Moran believes the Department is being disingenuous about having surplus funding in the Choice Act Fund.
