Trump Takes Credit for Reauthorizing Bernie Sanders’ Veterans CHOICE Act

WASHINGTON (April 19, 2017) — Donald Trump staged a very public signing ceremony at the White House on Wednesday morning to take credit for signing into law an extension of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014, aka the Veterans CHOICE Program, which is set to expire later this year.

The bills’ original author? Senator Bernie Sanders.


If reaffirming a not-new idea that in 2014 Bernie Sanders accomplished to push into law despite serious GOP obstructionism counts, then yes, he’s done something.

Trump of course made no mention of Sanders, or even the current bill’s sponsor, Democratic Senator Jon Tester (MT).

  • @SakaSaka, it hurts doesn't it right? Obamacare or the ACA is modeled after Romneycare. Its basically the same thing yet with a different name. Oh yeah Mitt is a Republican.

    "How Mitt Romney's Health-Care Experts Helped Design Obamacare"
    -When Mitt Romney is asked, as he often is, to explain the fact that Obamacare was modeled after Romneycare, he asks the President: “If that’s the case, why didn’t you call me? Why didn’t you ask what was wrong? Why didn’t you ask if this was an experiment, what worked and what didn’t…I would have told him, ‘What you’re doing, Mr. President, is going to bankrupt us.’” Now, Michael Isikoff, the Newsweek veteran who is best known for his investigative reporting on the Monica Lewinsky flap, is out with a lengthy report divulging “fresh details” on how the Obama administration relied on the designers of Romneycare in fashioning their own health-care law.
