Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) today launched a new ad titled “Broken Promises,” which highlights Senator Kay Hagan’s failure to deliver on her promises to help North Carolina’s veterans. In 2008, Sen. Hagan campaigned on the promise that she would improve the Department of Veterans Affairs—but now, North Carolina facilities have some of the longest wait times in the nation.
The ad is the latest in CVA’s VA Accountability Project series—a nationwide multi-media push to encourage constituents to thank their elected officials who have stood up and fought for veterans’ access to healthcare—as well as hold to account those legislators who failed to act.
In the ad, CVA asks North Carolinians to reach out to Sen. Hagan, urging her to follow through with her promises to fix the VA and put veterans’ medical needs ahead of employees’ compensation and job protection.
“Concerned Veterans for America is disappointed in Kay Hagan for failing to follow through on her lofty campaign promises to fix the broken VA system,” said Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA. “Since she was elected in 2008, North Carolina’s VA facilities have deteriorated into some of the worst in the country. Senator Hagan was well aware of the VA’s systemic problems, yet failed to take a leadership role in proactively taking action to improve them; instead, she was dragged into the VA reform discussion at every step. The simple point of the ad is that North Carolina’s veterans deserve better care and Kay Hagan has not been a real champion for them.”
