Background: Congressman Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) recently introduced a bill that would break our promise to veterans. H.R. 4457, the Veterans Empowerment Act, would dismantle the VA health care system, charge veterans for service-connected health care, and reduce VA to an insurance program for veterans. Congressman Lamborn and bill cosponsors, Congressmen Mark Meadows (R-N.C.) and Trent Franks (R-Ariz.) must not be allowed to advance this dangerous proposal.
Take Action: Urge your member of Congress to oppose H.R. 4457 and let Congress know if they cannot take care of America’s veterans, then Congress should quit creating them.
After taking action, please consider posting about this Alert on social media:
On Facebook, please paste: I stand with @VFWHQ and oppose H.R. 4457, the Veterans Empowerment Act. If Congress cannot afford to take care of America’s veterans then we should stop creating them. #VFWActionAlert http://bit.ly/2hVDFmw
