Congress has a responsibility to fulfill its obligations to veterans, members of the military and their families. This bill allows for over $81 billion to be spent on those goals, ~$2 billion more than last year. Additionally, the bill provides long-overdue funding to fight the Zika virus.
There’s a lot to like about this bill, but denying bonuses to all managers at the VA is a petty provision that needs to be removed. Additionally, the provision that provides funding for fighting Zika unnecessarily excludes Planned Parenthood from receiving funding.
