Moran Tangles with VA Secretary over Program for Rural Veterans

Secretary of Veterans Affairs Robert McDonald testifies before the House Veterans Affairs Committee (image via C-Span2)

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran has what amounts to a running feud going with the Department of Veterans Affairs. He says the agency is dragging its feet implementing a new law that’s designed to help veterans in rural areas get the care they need.  The new secretary of the VA – Robert McDonald – says Moran’s claims are baseless. We have two reports this morning, the first from Jim McLean of the KHI News Service, who recently sat down with Moran in his Capitol Hill office.


(newscast version)

Kansas Senator Jerry Moran and the Department of Veterans Affairs still don’t see eye-to-eye over implementation of a new program aimed at improving access to care for rural veterans. More from Heartland Health Monitor’s Bryan Thompson.
