Lawmakers Battle Over Whether New Health Care Bill Hurts Vets
A partisan fight broke out in the House Veterans Affairs Committee on Friday over whether the new health care bill proposal to replace Obamacare would help or hurt vets.
The Republican chairman of the committee, Rep. Phil Roe of Tennessee, vehemently said the proposed bill, called the American Health Care Act, wouldn’t hurt veterans. Democrats just as vehemently said it would.
The issue is tax credits and how they do or don’t apply to veterans under Obamacare, which Republicans want to repeal and replace.

Woman Sentenced To Prison For Feigning Blindness To Defraud The VA
Veronica Dale Hahn, 60, was sentenced Friday in the Panama City federal court. She pleaded guilty during her jury trial on charges of defrauding the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs for years in order to receive about $400,000 in benefits. Hahn now will have to repay that amount after serving nine months in federal prison.
The U.S. Attorney’s Office reported Hahn lied from November 2001 to February 2016 about being rendered blind in both eyes, which she claimed to be directly connected to her service in the military.
