Support our Veterans: Tell Congress to Stop Cutting their Health Care

Feb 2006
Despite their service, US military members are facing automatic cuts to their TRICARE health care every year. We can support our troops by helping ensure military members get the care they've earned.

Military veterans defended our country. Now it's time we stand up for them and tell Congress to defend their health care. We need to stop the budget games and fix TRICARE's flawed payment system to preserve military patients' access to vital services.

It is past time for America to move to a stable system that provides security for service members, veterans and their families. Consistently passing temporary patches, with the ongoing threat of future cuts, leads to uncertainty and a failure to keep the promises made to take care of our military members during and after their service. Take action to ensure members of the military and their families have access to the care they need.

Our commitment to America’s veterans is equal to the full measure of devotion that our veterans committed to us. President Obama and congressional Democrats respect that allegiance and have worked to provide additional resources to the Veterans Administration (VA). We also will continue to work to make certain that coordination between the VA and the Department of Defense creates a smooth transition from active duty to civilian life—ensuring a modernized and efficient delivery of health care and pension benefits.
