Daines, Colleagues Demand VA Do a Better Job of Providing Community Care to Veterans

U.S. SENATE – U.S. Senator Steve Daines led a group of his colleagues today to demand the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) reaffirm its commitment to veterans and ensure they have access to quality health care in a timely manner.

“Veterans deserve access to quality health care in a timely manner and the VA’s failure to do so and willful disregard for established standards is unacceptable,” the Senators wrote.  

Daines is joined by Senators Mike Braun (R-Ind.), John Thune (R-S.D.), Rick Scott (R-Fla.), Ron Johnson (R-Wis.), Marco Rubio (R-Fla.), Roger Marshall (R-Kan.), Cynthia Lummis (R-Wyo.), and Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

The MISSION Act created commitments to veterans’ quality of care for the VA – this letter demands answers as to why the VA fell short of their promises.
