    Overhaul Urged in Care for Soldiers
    Dole-Shalala Commission Wants Bush to Act Quickly

    Thursday, July 26, 2007

    A presidential commission examining the care given to wounded U.S. service members yesterday recommended "fundamental changes" aimed at simplifying the military's convoluted health-care bureaucracy and overhauling the veterans disability system for the first time in more than half a century.

    The commission, led by former senator Robert J. Dole (R-Kan.) and former Health and Human Services secretary Donna E. Shalala, met with President Bush at the White House yesterday morning to brief him on their findings and to press him for quick action. "We left there feeling the ball's in their court now," Dole said.

    ouch, Tony gets slapped around:

    White House press secretary Tony Snow initially told reporters yesterday that Bush would not act immediately on the panel's advice. "He's not going to be making recommendations; he's not going to be issuing calls for actions," Snow said.


    But late yesterday afternoon, after Dole and Shalala's comments and criticism from a veterans group, Bush -- appearing on the White House South Lawn after going running with two soldiers who had lost legs in combat -- announced that he will move quickly.

      What confusion in the White House? They should have asked Dick Cheney what HE wanted.
