Veterans Bill May Increase Medical Care

A bill providing major increases for medical care for veterans of Iraq and other wars is cruising through the Senate, even though it busts President Bush's budget by $4-billion.

The Senate is scheduled to pass the measure, which rewards the Veterans Affairs Dept. with an almost 10 percent budget increase for its health care accounts.

The bill adds to Bush's already whopping increase for construction projects at military bases and other defense department facilities.
