Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee Chair Bernie Sanders (I-VT) reported that the House and Senate negotiators were having a tough time reaching agreement on how to pay for a veterans health care bill. They were discussing whether the funding was an emergency, which means the government could borrow the money, or whether additional spending had to be offset by cuts.
