Improving Veteran’s Care

The current state of veteran’s hospitals and clinics is unacceptable and not how we should thank the heroes and heroins who risked their lives to defend us. VA facilities are inefficient and many VA facilities are not fulfilling their duties in caring for veterans.

It is our duty and responsibility to take care of our veterans who suffer from psychological and physical injuries from their service. With many of them entering service right out of high school, they come back with little job experience or training. Vocational training of our returning service men and women is a crucial part of supporting our vets. Furthermore, housing and rehabilitation of our homeless vets is our responsibility and more veteran homes must be established.

The VA Accountability Act of 2015 (H.R. 1994) “authorizes the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to remove or demote a VA employee based on performance or misconduct.” Ironically and sadly enough, my opponent Ted Lieu voted against this important bill. As a veteran himself, he has disrespected the veterans who have fought for our country. I will stand up and do what’s right for our veterans.
