Over at Health Business Blog, proprietor David Williams recently excoriated the Bush administration for it’s underwhelming commitment to VA funding.
Today, the Wall Street Journal had this to say:
"Less than two weeks ago, the administration asked for an extra $975 million for this summer. Now the VA estimates it needs another $300 million prior to Sept. 30 and as much as $1.7 billion -- on top of the president's budget request -- for fiscal 2006."
The VA system is one which doesn't get a lot of play in the blog world (well, at least in my little corner of it). David's post is important, in that it heightens our awareness of that system. Thanks, Dave!
