From After cancer, now what

I don’t agree with Senator Richard Burr on the color of the sky, but he has been working hard to make sure that those who were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune are taken care of.br /

Unfortunately Burr’s bill that called for the VA to provide health care to veterans and their relatives who were exposed to contaminated water at Camp Lejeune is dead. br /

Republican Sen. Richard Burr’s bill failed on a 9-5 vote of the VA Committee yesterday. If it had passed it would have granted care at a VA facility to any veteran or family member who suffered health effects from toxic water.br /

The committee did pass an alternative to Burr’s bill, requiring the DOD to provide care for five years.div class=”blogger-post-footer”img width=’1′ height=’1′ src=’https://blogger.googleusercontent.com/tracker/4713736175601908568-6395238165472671807?l=www.aftercancernowwhat.com’ alt=” //div
