Support Veterans with REAL service not Lip Service

This week, the U.S. Senate has a chance to take meaningful action to improve veterans' health care.
Join VoteVets and Campaign for Americans Future and tell your Senators to vote for Bernie Sanders' Restoring Veterans' Trust Act of 2014.

Here's what the bill does:
1. Authorizes the VA to hire new doctors and nurses, closing the gap between a growing number of veterans returning home to seek care and the number of health care professionals able to deliver it.
2. Allows the Department of Veterans Affairs to increase the number of locations delivering care by leasing twenty-seven new health facilities in eighteen states.
3. To address long-term needs, the legislation awards scholarships and forgives student debt for health care professionals willing to accept positions at the VA.
These are important steps Congress should take right now in order to improve short and long-term care for our nation's veterans.
In late February, right-wing Senators led a filibuster against similar legislation that would have struck at the root of problems within the VA system.
It's time to end the talk and take some action.
