  • Demand #VAaccountability

    Demand #VAaccountability

    Stand together as we continue the mission to support the VA Management Accountability Act (S. 2013) that would empower the VA Secretary to fire failing executives within the VA. Despite passing the House of Representatives in an overwhelming bipartisan vote of 390-33, Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid is blocking the bill from consideration in the Senate.

    CVA is fighting to change this — by calling on all Senators to become cosponsors of S. 2013, sending a clear signal to Senator Reid that our veterans deserve a vote. Sign the petition below to demand that the Senate allow a vote on the VA Management Accountability Act

    Sign the Petition

    Instead of pursuing true spending reform, both at the Pentagon and across the government, the ‘deal’ actually increases spending for government bureaucracies and cuts veterans retirement benefits to pay for it.

    Washington is asking veterans and their families, who have already sacrificed so much, to bear the brunt of Washington’s spending addiction. How does this make sense?

    CVA is fighting back. Sign our #CutDebtNotVets petition that demands true spending reform, not higher spending paid for with arbitrary cuts to military retirement.

  • White House Petition Delivery

    White House Petition Delivery

    On August 20th, 125 days after the launch of our Veterans Backlog Petition we delivered it to the White House. 125 days was intentional; that’s how long it takes for a VA claim to be “backlogged.”

    Over 27,000 veterans, military families and patriotic Americans stepped joined us and pledged to send a message to the Obama administration that the needs of our veterans cannot be ignored. Thanks to all of CVA’s veterans, friends, fans and supporters for your contributions to this push. Your energy and commitment to our veterans is appreciated. View our Delivery Day Round-Up, here.
  • Op-ED | Dysfunction at VA

    Op-ED | Dysfunction at VA

    The Department of Veterans Affairs is failing our veterans – plain and simple. Despite years of promises, over 903,000 disability and compensation cases are pending (headed toward 1 million), with 70% backlogged for more than 125 days.

    The backlog has increased by 2,000% since 2009. Utterly unacceptable.
