Senator Johnson Votes in Favor of VA Bill
 
"I opposed the original Veterans' Access to Care through Choice, Accountability, and Transparency Act of 2014 because it was a fiscally irresponsible bill, rushed to the floor by Sen. Reid without proper vetting.  Only minutes before the vote, the Congressional Budget Office provided a partial estimate of the bill�s cost, estimating that one section of the bill alone would cost taxpayers an additional $435 billion over 10 years."
