**Important News For Veterans**


The VA has announced that the FBI has recovered the laptop and the personal information of 26.5 million veterans that were stolen from a VA employee’s home on May 3, 2006.  The FBI also reported that none of the veterans’ data was copied. 

 While this is good news, as the Democratic Leader of the House of Representatives Veterans’ Affairs Committee, I have worked with my colleagues on the Committee to pass a bill to prevent similar problems in the future and to “make whole” all veterans who might suffer from id theft.  For more information about this issue, please visit my Veterans Page .

Medicare and Prescription Drugs
Families USA is a national nonprofit, non-partisan organization dedicated to the achievement of high-quality, affordable health care for all Americans.  Families USA tracks price increases in the top drugs prescribed for seniors.  Their recent report, “Sticker Shock: Rising Prescription Drug Prices for Seniors,” provides new data about recent drug price changes, and also provides a context for determining whether the new Medicare drug discounts will make prescription drugs more affordable than they have been in the past.  The Families USA Web site also has additional information on the new Medicare law.
