McMorris Rodgers helps vets


I’m thankful for Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ strong leadership on behalf of veterans and military families.

As a co-founder of the bipartisan Military Families Caucus, McMorris Rodgers is leading the way by reaching across the aisle to get things done. Just this year, she has voted for several bills that have passed the House with support from both parties.

I’m most proud of McMorris Rodgers’ work to hold the Veterans Administration accountable. She was an original co-sponsor of H.R. 4810, the Veteran Access to Care Act of 2014, which enables veterans who live over 40 miles from a VA facility to receive non-VA care and guarantees those veterans who have experienced extensive wait times access to non-VA care.

I’m voting to send Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers back to Congress to keep fighting for us. She’s doing a great job and, at a time like this, we need her leadership more than ever.
