Republicans and Independents found it “unifying,” though Democrats were slower to come around on that measure.
The Obama administration has agreed to provide disability benefits totaling more than $2 billion to veterans who had been exposed to contaminated drinking water while assigned to Camp Lejeune in North Carolina.
