This call-to-action web video (runtime :31) calls on President Obama to stop making excuses and start delivering results to fix the claims backlog at the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) and to relieve Secretary Eric Shinseki of his leadership position at the department.
This morning over two-dozen members of the House of Representatives (23 Republicans, 2 Democrats, and all military veterans) sent a letter to President Obama urging him to take action to alleviate the claims backlog at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). These military veterans in Congress called on the president to…
As the backlog of pending disability claims at the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) soars to nearly one million, today Concerned Veterans for America (CVA) is launching a new website (MillionVetBacklog.com) and campaign to mobilize veterans and all Americans to demand accountability at VA.

With the United States facing what looks increasingly like a permanent fiscal crisis, it is past time for President Obama to show leadership in addressing the federal government’s runaway spending. Unfortunately, his nomination of Jack Lew to serve as Treasury Secretary indicates that the president is not serious about, or interested in, meeting that challenge.
When President Obama entered office in January 2009, the unemployment rate clocked in at 7.8 percent. Four years later, as the president prepares for his second inauguration, the unemployment rate is unchanged at 7.8 percent. This is what a stagnant economy looks like.
We may have avoided the so-called fiscal cliff, but we’ve set the stage for a forthcoming fiscal avalanche that is likely to be even worse.
