Race against the clock now..

The bipartisan overhaul of the Department of Veterans Affairs approved last week by Congress has touched off a race against the clock, as the agency now is tasked with setting up a private health care alternative for veterans within 90 days.
Whether the already-struggling VA can meet that deadline remains to be seen.
