During the 2015-16 campaign, President Trump promised that he would free up the health care market to help military veterans and their families obtain alternative, private care of their own choice.
He wasn’t kidding.
Today, Trump signed the Veterans Choice in Healthcare Act enabling vets the option to choose private health care and compare competing plans before signing on.
In his usual off-the-cuff style, the President spoke to the media about why the new law is so crucial to our military and important to the White House – inventing his own new name for the measure in the process.
“It’s time that we take care of our veterans, and take care of them properly. That’s why I’m pleased today to sign into law the Veterans Choice Program Improvement Act. So this is called the Choice Program Improvement Act. It speaks for itself,” Trump said.
The POTUS called veterans “the most incredible people” in the USA, concluding, “This new law is a good start but there is still much work to do.”
