    Trump Signs Bill to Extend Veterans Choice Program

    President Donald Trump extended the Veterans Choice Act on Wednesday to set the stage for a push in Congress to expand the program and allow more access to private care for veterans. Flanked by veterans at an Oval Office ceremony, the president signed the bill to extend the Choice program, which was to expire on Aug. 7, and allow the expenditure of the remaining $950 million in the program.

    The Choice Card program allowed vets facing lengthy wait times at Veterans Administration facilities or living more than 40 miles from the nearest VA to seek care in the private sector. Those already in the program will not need to re-apply under the bill signed by Trump, VA officials said. The new bill -- the Veterans Choice Improvement Act -- addressed a major complaint of veterans service organizations by directing the VA to cover co-pays and deductibles directly for private care rather than reimbursing veterans for paying up front.

    Do you think this was a Trump plan? Of course you do. You think Trump was President in 2014......

    This signing was merely an extension of the Obama program, how pathetic you look......

    Yes, tell us all about how obama did anything real to help the vets. I'll wait.

    Trump is going to help them; giving them the benefits they earned in a timely fashion. It's about damn time. So many suffered and died waiting for obama to fix it.
    Thanks from Southern Dad

    You need to learn the difference between a Law and an executive order. Trump signed an executive order adding on to an existing Law.

    The extension he signed was of an Obama program from 2014....are you seriously claiming it as a Trump "win"? Mind boggling.
