BBC News America: Veterans affairs leaders in Congress have announced a compromise to help address the problems overwhelming the US veterans healthcare system.

The agreement announced on Monday includes about $10billion in emergency spending for veterans to obtain outside care if they cannot get prompt appointments with Veterans Affairs (VA) doctors, $5bn to hire doctors, nurses and other medical staff, and $1.5billion to set up 27 new VA clinics around the country.
