The VA is denying veterans the care they need

The VA MISSION Act, signed into law in 2018 with strong support from CVA, was supposed to expand community care options for veterans. Instead, VA bureaucrats are again working to limit veterans’ ability to access care.

When I was in pain, access to community care would have solved my situation sooner," says John Byrnes. "Don't let the VA take it away."

Darin Selnick explains how the VA is violating federal health care law and overruling doctors' decisions

The VA is violating the MISSION Act and veterans Community Care Program regulations in order to save money and keep patients at VA facilities. VA medical center management is overruling care decisions made by VA doctors and their patients, in some cases even cutting off care entirely.

CVA Senior Advisor Darin Selnick breaks down what investigative reports have uncovered at the VA and what the findings mean for veterans.

Time to repeal the 2002 AUMF and end the Iraq War (for the second time)

"Regardless of whether their deployment is called a combat mission, U.S. troops will remain under regular attack as long as they remain in Iraq."

Almost 20 years after Congress passed the 2002 Iraq Authorization for Use of Military Force, and 10 years after the U.S. announced the end of the Iraq War, somehow, Congress is leaving the repeal of the 2002 AUMF on the cutting room floor.

CVA on NDAA: Congress fails troops, American people - Concerned Veterans for America

Our leaders missed the opportunity to again do what's best for America.

The NDAA was a chance to course correct on defense priorities, rein in wasteful and unnecessary spending to better meet the current and future defense needs of the country. Instead, lawmakers have chosen to spend more money, punt on the issue of Congressional war powers, and maintain an unsustainable defense posture. - Russ Duerstine

Today, Iraq announced the end of the coalition combat mission that the US has led in the country for years - as well as the withdrawal of all combat forces. Unfortunately, despite these claims, thousands of US troops will remain in Iraq anyway.
These troops, despite not being in a "combat mission" will remain engaged in combat with various militia forces. American lives remain on the line in a conflict that's failed to serve American interests for nearly 19 years.
Americans deserve an honest perspective on why our armed forces are still in Iraq, and the risk that we're asking service members to undertake. Instead of making the situation in Iraq look peaceful by saying combat is over when it isn't, our officials should evaluate why they're still keeping Americans in harm's way - and make the choice to bring them home.

Under fire from senators after inewsource investigation, VA promises better care for veterans

β€œI really do think it should be the veterans choice, and yet I think a lot of veterans feel that’s not the way it is… I think we’ve got a serious problem here that’s not going to go away.”

The VA described several steps it has taken to address issues raised in the article to ensure former service members are getting the care they need.

End the Mistake of the Iraq War

Thousands of American war fighters are still deployed in dangerous situations in Iraq. It's time to end our involvement in this conflict that doesn't serve our nation's security interests and drains our ability to respond to other threats.

CVA advocates for policies that will preserve the freedom and prosperity that we and our families fought and sacrificed to defend.

Kevin N Connie Kondracki 4h Β· One of my past fellow church members at Lighthouse in PCB. Please pray! Heather Butler 4h Β· PLEASE SHARE!!!!! We need help finding a hospital for Jake. Yall They have been trying nonstop. They 1st have to have an ICU bed available, then they have to have an "admitting" physician at the hospital with the bed who is willing to sign off... please y'all. And if you know anyone who could help please share this below with them. Btw we will be out at the hospital tonight. Let's stand up for the ones who can't. God bless!!! Please help. I am coming to you on behalf of a friend and disabled veteran. He is 39 and a father of 5. He was admitted to the hospital here locally in Panama City after being found unresponsive on the floor of his cabinet shop early Wednesday morning. His rights and his family’s rights have been and continue to be violated. They have also been deceived. They were told at one point he was deceased and that she could come see his body once they cleaned him up. Seven hours later they called stating it was a miscommunication. This was the first of many β€œmiscommunications” that would better be defined as deceptions. He is an organ donor and that is all they seem to be concerned about. The family has no trust as they have disconnected him from fluids without spousal consent and did not have him on any monitors-simply a ventilator. They are now blocking measures to have him transferred. We are reaching out for help to get him somewhere, anywhere, that will give him and his family an opportunity at survival and recovery. Please, on behalf of this combat veteran and his family, we are asking for some help.#savejake #truthmatters #life
