A new veterans care bill is now law. The bipartisan measure gives veterans expanded access to private care at taxpayer expense. In a White House signing ceremony today, President Trump said vets will have more choices for their medical care. He called choice a beautiful word. Supporters say the measure will help relieve the backlog at VA health centers around the U.S. Some critics warn that the bill is part of a broader Republican effort to privatize the VA. Trump said he is keeping campaign promises to veterans. He noted that vets deserve the "absolute best."
