WASHINGTON, DC — VoteVets, the largest progressive group of veterans in America, is slamming Republican Senators for voting against an $18 billion to upgrade and mordernize Department of Veterans Affairs facilities, in the budget resolution the Senate voted on, today.
In a statement, Mary Kaszynski, Director of Government Relations for VoteVets, said in a statement:
"With over 9 million veterans in the VA Health System, ensuring that they have the best facilities possible is paramount in keeping our promise to them. Unfortunately, every single Republican voted against sending more funds to the VA to modernize and upgrade facilities, this morning. With over 325,000 veterans in Wisconsin, how can Senator Ron Johnson justify that? With over 1.5 million veterans in Florida, how does Marco Rubio justify that? Our veterans won't forget this vote."
