Amid an ongoing global pandemic, record inflation, and supply chain issues (to name just a few), Americans are facing enough hurdles to realizing their dreams and living their best lives. The last thing we need is for our government to add more barriers to our freedom and prosperity.
As records show, sadly, that is exactly what the VA is doing for many veterans – acting as a barrier to deny or delay veterans’ access to the critical care they need and deserve — and the VA is doing it by willfully skirting the law.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
Sen. Marsha Blackburn from Tennessee has introduced a bill, the Veterans Health Care Freedom Act, that would create a pilot program to provide eligible veterans full health care choice – just like many Americans enjoy.
Instead of forcing veterans into a backlogged, bureaucratic VA system that has canceled over 20 million (!!) appointments since the start of the pandemic, we should afford our nation’s heroes with the freedom to get care where and when they need it.
With your help, we can get this bill the attention it deserves, and ensure our veterans receive the care they have been promised.
Sign the letter and tell your lawmaker to co-sponsor and support this bill when it comes up for a vote!
