President Trump signed today the Veterans Choice Program Extension and Improvement Act which allows veterans to seek private medical care. 

President Trump signed S. 544, the Veterans Choice Program Extension and Improvement Act which allows veterans to seek private medical care.

 “The veterans have poured out their sweat and blood and tears for this country for so long, and it’s time that they’re recognized, and it’s time that we now take care of them, and take care of them properly,”  said President Trump.

This piece of legislation will allow veterans to see “the doctor of their choice” and not have to travel long distances to get care.

President Trump called it a good start and “there is still much work to do. We will fight each and every day to deliver the long-awaited reforms our veterans deserve and to protect those who have so courageously protected each and every one of us.”

President Trump thanked Rep. Phil Roe,  Sens. John McCain and Johnny Isakson, veterans groups and VA Secretary David Shulkin. He gave a special notice to “my good friend, Florida Gov. Rick Scott, a Navy veteran who is here with us to represent more than a million veterans from the state of Florida.”

A veterans news conference will take place next Thursday. “We’re going to have a news conference with David and some others to tell you about all of the tremendous things that are happening at the VA, what we’ve done in terms of progress and achievement,” announced President Trump.
