22% More Funding For VA But No More For SSA

The Senate is working on a continuing resolution (CR) to fund government activities for a few more months. This is facing the threat of a filibuster. A government shutdown just before Christmas is unlikely but not totally out of the question. The current version of the CR would increase funding for the Veterans Benefits Administration by 22% "to support efforts in reducing the processing times of disability claims." Social Security would get no increase from its 2010 funding level under the CR.
