New ad campaign reopens fight over VA privatization claims

VA News

A left-leaning veterans advocacy group today is reopening the fight over privatization of Veterans Affairs services with a multi-state ad campaign imploring lawmakers to “save VA.”

The nearly $400,000 effort comes as top VA officials and congressional leaders are preparing to unveil their long-term plans for the department’s controversial Choice program, which allows veterans to seek private-sector care using federal dollars.

The program has been a frequent target of critics who accuse conservatives of working to undermine VA funding and services, by outsourcing core government responsibilities to provide health care to veterans.
