At the bill signing, President Trump reminded America that “four years ago, our nation was shocked and outraged by stories of the VA system plagued by neglect, abuse, fraud, and mistreatment of our veterans.” Speaking directly to veterans in attendance, he stated, “no one should suffer what you suffered.”
President Trump’s VA Mission Act is the first step in guaranteeing that such abuses will never happen again. This bill takes the long-overdue step of consolidating the complex web of multiple veterans’ community care programs into one unified program, simplifying and strengthening health care opportunities for America’s veterans.
Making a promise to reform the VA system during his campaign, the President has kept his word with this bill. The VA Mission Act breaks down bureaucratic barriers so that veterans can now easily access affordable caregivers, medicine, and all other forms of healthcare in an efficient and timely manner. No longer will veterans have to search and wait for much-needed care; they will now be able to immediately access care from their choice providers.
