VFW Legislative Alert: Congress Must Pass VA Access and Accountability Bill Today!
July 10, 2014
Background: As a result of the recent
VA health care crisis, both Chambers of Congress passed legislation designed to
improve timely access for veterans waiting for care. On June 24, a Conference
Committee was formed to iron out differences between the two bills.
Today, the bill is stalled in a political discussion about
cost. This is unacceptable and continues to put veterans at risk of not
receiving timely care. Congress didn't think twice to send service members to
war, and they shouldn't think twice about providing care for those they sent to
Action Needed: Congress leaves
Washington in a few short weeks. We insist they reach a solution and pass a
final access and accountability bill before they go home on vacation, so
veterans can receive the care they have earned and desperately need. Contact
your legislators today and demand they pass a compromised VA Access and
Accountability bill today.
The time for talk is over - It is time for
