Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is launching a major campaign about what they claim is “Sen. Tammy Baldwin’s failure to address the Tomah VA scandal.” The CVA also urging the public to call her and ask her to support more health care options for veterans.
The grassroots group plans to spend $1.5 million in statewide TV and digital ads asking citizens to call Baldwin and tell her to support the Veterans Community Care and Access Act of 2017.
“We plan to make veterans health care a major issue this year as part of our long-term campaign to reform the way the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) delivers care to our veterans. Part of this effort includes highlighting when elected officials like Senator Tammy Baldwin fail to ensure that the veterans they represent are being properly served by the VA. Senator Baldwin put Wisconsin veterans in danger when she failed to act on reports of serious misconduct at the Tomah VA. In order to ensure that veterans in Wisconsin aren’t trapped in failing VA hospitals like the one in Tomah, Senator Baldwin needs to step up and support legislation that offers real health choice for veterans at the VA.”
