Protect Veterans, Oppose Dangerous Bill

On behalf of National Nurses United, the nation’s largest union and professional association of registered nurses, representing 185,000 nurses across the United States, including more than 10,000 RNs working at 23 Veterans Administration facilities, I am writing to urge you to oppose the draft legislation prepared by Rep. Cathy McMorris Rodgers that would significantly endanger the health care of millions of veterans by shifting to a privatized system.
