The Nation

December 27, 1985

President Reagan's draft budget for fiscal 1987 would reduce spending on veterans' benefits by cutting the number of people treated, according to a published report. Also, for the first time, the government would require veterans' insurance companies to help pay the costs, according to today's editions of The New York Times. The administrator for veterans' affairs, Harry W. Walters, warned in a letter quoted by the paper that cutbacks in spending and staff could "ultimately result in a reduced quality of medical care" for veterans.
