SAVE OUR VA

Join Veterans to Take Action on June 6th to Save Our VA! 

On June 5th and 6th, veterans around the country are going to take action to rally in support of the Veterans Healthcare Administration (VHA) and speak out against privatization and the roll out of this dangerous new policy. 

Packaged under the guise of giving veterans more choices, it is actually a gigantic shift of veterans out of the Veterans healthcare system and into private health care.  Touted as cost effective, the plan actually continues to strip the VA of funds and directing them towards private care and corporations.

Under the VA’s new rules every dollar spent on outsourcing veterans’ care to the private sector will come directly out of the VA’s budget and undermine its heath care system by preventing it filling 46,000 current staff vacancies or maintain its 150 hospitals and over 1,000 clinics.
