This week the Senate has a chance to pass bipartisan legislation that
would allow the VA to lease new health care facilities and hire the
doctors and nurses needed to keep up with the new veterans created after
two wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.
A similar bill passed the House, so hopefully this is the final step
before instituting the kind of changes we need to ensure the tragedies
at Phoenix and other VA facilities across the country never happen
again. Sign our joint-petition calling on Mitch McConnell to stop blocking
funding for veterans’ health care, and pass the Sanders-McCain
legislation this week.
