New Ad: Concerned Veterans for America Thanks Rep. Coffman for His Record on Dept. of Veterans Affairs Reform

Six-Figure Mail and Digital Ad Buy Begins Today in Colorado

Arlington, Va. – Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) today launched a new ad, “Leadership,” thanking Rep. Mike Coffman (R-Colo.) for his long record of responsibly promoting reform at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). For years, Rep. Coffman has participated in the crafting of aggressive VA reform legislation that tends to the physical and mental well-being of our veterans.

The six-figure mail and digital ad campaign in Colorado is a continuation of CVA’s VA Accountability project, a campaign to bring long-overdue accountability to the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Rep. Coffman not only fought for our country during his time in the military—he also continued to fight for the freedoms America was founded on when he was elected to Congress. He worked to improve the lives of his fellow veterans by pushing and co-sponsoring the Veterans Access to Care Act (H.R. 4810) and the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act (H.R. 4031), which CVA strongly supports. While President Obama and the U.S. Senate acted as bystanders and did nothing to fix the VA’s problems, veterans died waiting for care at VA facilities. Rep. Coffman recognized the problems though, and took immediate, decisive action.

“Concerned Veterans for America wants to thank Congressman Coffman for his service to his country both as a veteran and as a veterans advocate during his time in the House of Representatives,” said Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA. “Representative Coffman used his influence on the House Veterans Affairs Committee to relentlessly pursue VA reform legislation long before the current VA scandal broke, and we believe he will continue to do so for his remaining tenure in Congress. The VA reform legislation he championed holds the VA accountable and gives veterans the option to seek private care if they cannot be seen promptly within the VA system.  He has been a leader on these issues for years—and veterans know they can count on Mike Coffman.”

CVA has a history of publicly thanking lawmakers for their support of reform at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Just a few months ago, CVA ran similar ads thanking the following members: Sens. Bill Nelson (D-FL), Marco Rubio (R-FL), and Richard Burr (R-NC), as well as Congressmen David Scott (D-GA) and Jeff Miller (R-FL).
