Save our VA - Don't let Trump's friends profit off our veterans
Donald Trump and his Republican cronies seek to undermine the Dept. of Veterans Affairs, but a majority of veterans want to strengthen it instead. And if enough voices join together, we will deliver these signatures to all members of Congress and urge them to reject Donald Trump’s disastrous plan to privatize the VA.
Why is this important?
Even though our country is bitterly divided on many issues, there’s one thing Americans all agree on: veterans deserve to be treated with dignity and respect. Veterans have sacrificed a great deal to serve this country, and upon returning to civilian life, they’re often faced with unique challenges and obstacles.
That’s why we have the Department of Veterans Affairs. It provides those who’ve served with the kind of health care, financial assistance, education, job training that they have earned. President-elect Donald Trump has a plan to privatize the VA and demolish its specialized programs to allow his rich cronies to make a quick buck. We must fight back against this plan and #SaveOurVA.
Please add your name today and stand with veterans by condemning Donald Trump’s plan to privatize the VA. After you've signed, please share this on social media!
Millions of men and women have volunteered to serve in uniform to defend their fellow Americans. And many of them return home with injuries, trauma, and challenges that are very different from anything civilians experience. We must continue to ensure that those who served in uniform get the care they need when they return home. Their health and well-being cannot be turned into a for-profit operation.
The issue of veterans’ health care isn’t a partisan one, either. More than two-thirds of all veterans are opposed to privatizing the VA, and virtually every veterans group disagrees with the plan as well. This kind of overwhelming majority isn’t a coincidence. We must make sure Donald Trump hears us loud and clear on this issue.
We’re at an important crossroads. Donald Trump and his Republican colleagues seek to undermine the VA, but a majority of veterans want to strengthen it instead. And if enough voices join together, we will deliver these signatures to all members of Congress and urge them to reject Donald Trump’s disastrous plan.
Thank you for standing with us,
