CVA Responds to False Attacks from Bernie Sanders and Hillary Clinton
Arlington, Va. – In response to statements made by Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton during a recent debate, Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) Vice President for Legislative and Political Action Dan Caldwell issued the following statement on behalf of CVA: “Not surprisingly, Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton, who have both downplayed and minimized the problems at the VA, blatantly misrepresented CVA’s reform proposals during a recent debate. In our Fixing Veterans Health Care Task Force report, we very clearly state that we oppose completely dismantling and privatizing the VA. While Senator Sanders and Secretary Clinton are engaging in false and petty political attacks, CVA is offering serious, bipartisan, and in-depth policy proposals to reform and fix the VA. “Additionally, calling CVA a ‘front group’ is an insult to the thousands of employees and volunteers for CVA across the country who have worn the uniform in the defense of our nation. Many CVA staff members and volunteers are also combat veterans – including some who have been wounded in action and decorated for valor. These are a devoted group of patriots who have dedicated their lives to defending and improving our great country and deserve better than false and misleading attacks from top presidential candidates.”
