A few weeks ago, a deplorable ad was published by a left-wing astroturf group that suggested Andrew Romanoff would be better for veterans than Republican Congressman Mike Coffman (a veteran). Yes, we’re still laughing. Today, Concerned Veterans for America published its own ad that gives the real story of Coffman’s commitment to veterans. As they said in a press release accompanying the ad:
Rep. Coffman not only fought for our country during his time in the military—he also continued to fight for the freedoms America was founded on when he was elected to Congress. He worked to improve the lives of his fellow veterans by pushing and co-sponsoring the Veterans Access to Care Act (H.R. 4810) and the Department of Veterans Affairs Management Accountability Act (H.R. 4031), which CVA strongly supports. While President Obama and the U.S. Senate acted as bystanders and did nothing to fix the VA’s problems, veterans died waiting for care at VA facilities. Rep. Coffman recognized the problems though, and took immediate, decisive action.
“Concerned Veterans for America wants to thank Congressman Coffman for his service to his country both as a veteran and as a veterans advocate during his time in the House of Representatives,” said Pete Hegseth, CEO of CVA. [the Peak‘s emphasis]
Watch the ad here:
From the ad:
The VA is failing Colorado’s veterans, but Congressman Mike Coffman, a veteran himself, is fighting everyday to improve the lives of his fellow veterans and fix the VA. Coffman serves on the Veterans Affairs Committee, and fought to pass legislation that would give Colorado veterans better access to healthcare and hold bad managers accountable at the VA. Call Mike Coffman. Thank him for standing up for his fellow Colorado veterans.
