Here’s Tammy’s appearance on Fox News Saturday regarding the bickering in Congress over what to do about the VA crisis. All this, of course, while vets continue to die because of a lack of care.
In the meantime, it was announced today the Congress Clowns may have come to some sort of compromise. We don’t know the details yet, nor do we know if they’ll be able to schedule a vote before they run off to their very important 5-week vacation on August 4th.

The two lawmakers released a statement Sunday saying they “made significant progress on legislation to make the VA more accountable and recruit more doctors, nurses and other health care professionals.” An aide added that the agreement will “deal with both the short-term and long-term needs of the VA.” […]
If the plan is approved by the bipartisan group of negotiators from both chambers, it will still have to pass both the House and Senate. Both chambers are expected to adjourn at the end of this week for a five-week recess.
