June 10 - Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chairman Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) tonight issued the following statement on legislation that the Senate could consider as early as Wednesday:

"I look forward to seeing rapid progress on the bipartisan veterans legislation that Sen. McCain and I crafted. I hope the bill gets to the Senate floor on Wednesday.

"Our job is to make certain that every veteran in the country gets quality health care in a timely manner. At a time when 2 million more veterans have come into the VA in the last four years, we must ensure that there are enough doctors, nurses and other health care professionals to meet the needs of veterans in every facility in the country."
