What Happened to Bernie Sanders' Veteran's Bill?
On this Memorial Day weekend, Sen. Bernie Sanders is honoring those who paid the ultimate sacrifice in service to our nation. As chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, Bernie will attend ceremonies in Vermont paying tribute to those who have served our country. He also will discuss veterans issues during a discussion at 9 a.m. ET Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union.” One possible topic may be Friday’s announcement that Bernie will introduce legislation to increase accountability at the Department of Veterans Affairs and revive his comprehensive measure to improve veterans’ and survivors’ benefits.
