New Video Highlights CVA’s Efforts and Progress in Vets’ Health Care Reform
Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) today released its “Road to Reform” video [link], which documents the organization’s fight to pass long-overdue legislation to reform the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and lays out its plans to expand accountability, competition and choice to improve the delivery of veterans’ health care in the future.
From the delivery of CVA’s Million Vet Backlog petition to the White House in 2013—well before the Phoenix scandal shocked the nation—to its VA Accountability Project, to the passage of the Veterans Access, Choice, and Accountability Act of 2014, “Road to Reform” highlights the grassroots advocacy efforts CVA brought to bear, and lays the groundwork for its legislative priorities in 2015 and beyond.
Watch “Road to Reform” here.
Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA, issued the following statement on the “Road to Reform” video:
“Revelations of gross mismanagement at the VA hospital in Phoenix last year were a shock to many people—but not Concerned Veterans for America. We’ve been aware of the lack of accountability at the VA and pushing for reforms at the agency since early 2013. Our new ‘Road to Reform’ video explains the actions CVA has taken over the past two years, our progress to date, and our plans to continue our relentless quest to bring reform to the Department of Veterans Affairs.
“The problems at the VA persist, and the road ahead is long – but ‘Road to Reform’ describes how we’re going to pave that road by fighting to bring accountability, choice, and timeliness to the delivery of veterans’ health care. CVA knows that someone must serve as a watchdog for those who serve our veterans—and we know that there has never been a more critical time to stand up for change.”
