FILE - In this Dec. 25, 2010 file photo, a festival official touches the lip of a young expensive Majahim, dark-skinned originally from Najd, Saudi Arabia, camel during the final day of Mazayin Dhafra Camel Festival in outskirt of Zayed City about 120 kms south west of Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. Scientists say the mysterious MERS virus has been infecting camels in Saudi Arabia for at least two decades and that previous human cases have probably been missed. Since the Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus was first identified in 2012, doctors have struggled to explain how most patients have fallen sick. MERS can cause symptoms including fever, breathing problems and kidney failure. To date, it has killed more than 180 people, mostly in the Middle East though infections have also spread to Europe and northern Africa. (AP Photo/Kamran Jebreili, File)

Bernie Sanders, the bill’s author and the chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, has gained the endorsement of myriad veterans groups to generate momentum for his bill, which the panel says would cost $21 billion over 10 years.

This photo taken Feb. 24, 2014 shows actress Angelina Jolie waving as she leaves the government palace in Beirut, Lebanon. For women who carry a notorious cancer gene, surgery to remove healthy ovaries is one of the most protective steps they can take. New research suggests some may benefit most from having the operation as young as 35. Women who inherit either of two faulty BRCA genes are at much higher risk of developing breast and ovarian cancer than other women, and at younger ages. Jolie generated headlines last year when she had her healthy breasts removed to reduce her cancer risk. (AP Photo/Hussein Malla)

This screen image shows the website for Oregon's health care exchange. House Republicans intent on highlighting the woes of President Barack Obama’s health care law need to look no further than their own back yards, some of which are traditionally liberal strongholds. In Oregon, the online portal has struggled to sign up a single individual, and Republican Rep. Greg Walden recently sent a letter to the U.S. Government Accountability Office pressing for an inquiry. Officials in both states insist they are working to fix the problems. (AP Photo/State of Oregon)
