TODAY: Speaker Boehner, GOP Leaders, Veterans Groups to Hold Press Event on VA Accountability Legislation
LIVE STREAMED! House Speaker John Boehner (R-OH) will join GOP leaders and representatives of several veterans’ service organizations in holding a press event tomorrow, in the Rayburn Room of the United States Capitol to discuss legislation that would bring greater accountability to the Department of Veterans’ Affairs for meeting the needs of America’s veterans, including its disability claims backlog.
This “boots on the ground” operation will include an estimated 200 targeted meetings on Capitol Hill with Congressional members and staff, with a special focus on urging reform of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and other items from their CVA legislative agenda.
Pete Hegseth, CEO of Concerned Veterans for America (CVA), has been invited by the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs to testify Tuesday, March 25, 2014, on behalf of CVA in support of H.R.4031, a bill that would bring long-overdue accountability to the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) by empowering the VA Secretary to fire underperforming mangers.

Sen. Mark Pryor of Arkansas, facing a tough reelection campaign against Rep. Tom Cotton, a U.S. Army veteran, crossed a line in attacking Cotton’s character and military record, according to Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) CEO Pete Hegseth.
Under President Obama’s fiscal year 2015 budget proposal, the VA would receive $163.9 billion, roughly $10.1 billion in new funding over the previous fiscal year. But Darin Selnick, CVA’s lead advisor on VA matters, said additional funding to the VA would be wasted without reforms to improve accountability at the department.
Rather than address the nation’s serious spending problem—and fight for long-overdue reforms—the president presented a budget that continues the path of irresponsible spending and, sadly, is little more than a political road map aimed at rallying the president’s base for the mid-term elections in November.
