"require the VA to offer outside care to veterans who cannot be seen within

However, we are going to have to more fully fund the VA if this kind of plan is
installed.Wait.....The GOP is against higher funding for government
responsibilities. How are they going to square this circle?
"sounds pricey.I don't see in the article how the
Republicans plan to PAY for this. Don't they usually require some offset
against other spending?"Yes, of course, it would be very
