"I am baffled as to how Rep. Ocasio-Cortez fails to see that".
When tragedy struck her family in the midst of the financial crisis, Bronx-born Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez had to work double shifts in a restaurant to save her home from foreclosure. In 2018, Congress passed the Mission Act to address wait time and access to care for veterans.
"If implemented properly, it will fix a lot of the long-term systemic problems in the V.A.", he said, adding "You're seeing more people like Congresswoman Ocasio-Cortez inside and outside trying to stop the implementation of the bill and keep veterans trapped in many cases in failing V.A. hospitals". But that is only because of the Trump Administration.
Ocasio-Cortez's office did not immediately respond to The Daily Caller News Foundation's request for comment.
'They're trying to fix the VA for pharmaceutical companies, they're trying to fix the VA for insurance corporations, and ultimately they're trying to fix the VA for a for-profit healthcare industry that does not put people or veterans first. "And so we have a responsibility to protect it".
Trump bragged Wednesday afternoon, during an Atlanta speech about opioid addiction, about his advocacy for protecting veterans, not the VA system. "Giving veterans a choice will force the private sector and the V.A.to compete for veterans, this will give veterans the power to choose". "With intimacy and immediacy, Rachel Lears and Robin Blotnik, bring viewers to the front lines of a movement, as four women find their voice, their power and their objective, allowing all of us to witness the promise of true democracy in action". "It is our job as outlined in Article 1, Sec 2, Clause 5 of the US Constitution", Ocasio-Cortez tweeted, promising to sign on to impeachment proceedings led by fellow freshman Democrat Rep. Rashida Tlaib of MI.
"While Rep. Ocasio-Cortez and I have VA medical facilities in and near our districts with great quality ratings, not all veterans are so lucky". It took the VA almost another six months to fire the Phoenix medical system's chief admnistrator who presided over the cover-up.
