As the daughter of two veterans, sister to two, and mother of one, I know the sacrifices the men and women serving our country make every day. We owe it to them to provide them with the best medical care, access to education, job training, and other support they need and deserve.

But instead of working to reform the Department of Veteran Affairs (VA), President Trump and Republicans in Congress continue to play politics while our veterans still wait weeks and even months to get the care they need.

I stand with veteran organizations, including the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) and American Legion, in calling for reforms while opposing any attempts to privatize or otherwise cut the services our veterans need and have earned.
