There is pending legislation on Capitol Hill that could lead to a total dismantling and privatization of the healthcare system our veterans want and need.
Last week, the House of Representatives voted 347-70 to pass S. 2372, the VA Mission Act. Now the bill goes to the Senate.
We need you to call both of your Senators NOW at 833-480-1637 and tell them you strongly oppose the VA MISSION Act (S. 2372).
Every dollar spent on privatized care deprives our veterans of the specialized care offered in our VAs – specialized care that saves their lives and helps veterans heal faster.
The VA MISSION Act (S. 2372) –
- The legislation gives a VA Secretary the authority to privatize and dismantle broad swaths of the VA health care system;
- The legislation gives the next VA Secretary broad authority to dismantle the VA at a time when the VA faces intense political pressure to pursue privatization;
- The legislation will devastate communities by closures of vibrant VA medical centers;
- The legislation will lead to privatization at the expense of full-staffing and resources needed for VA’s in-house operations.
Please call both of your Senators right NOW at 833-480-1637 and tell them to oppose the VA MISSION Act (S. 2372).
Once you hang up, please call 833-480-1637 again to speak with your other Senator’s office.
President, NC State AFL-CIO
