Honor Our Veterans

Honor Our Veterans

The treatment of our Veterans, including the new generation of American heroes who have served in Iraq, Afghanistan and across the globe in the war on terror, is a national disgrace.

Like you, I am outraged that Washington has done almost nothing to help our Vets or to hold accountable the government bureaucrats who mistreat, abuse, and ignore those who have sacrificed so much for this country. It must end and it will.

We must fully reform the VA. Our Vets deserve the highest-quality care, including allowing them to access private medical care if their local VA can't or won't provide the care they deserve, and hold those who abuse or ignore Vet's medical needs criminally liable. We must insist on shorter waiting times for medical and mental health care, and expedite the delivery of prostheses for our injured Vets.
