‘According to Jeff Sessions, that’s not going to “intimidate” the Republicans, though, because they’re going to “do the right things for the veterans and America.”

‘They successfully blocked the bill’.

‘Senate Veterans Affairs Committee Chair Bernie Sanders (I) of Vermont slammed the GOP for their priorities, saying that’:
