Joyce Dickerson on Homeland Security

 

 


I'm mad as heel about delays in veterans' care

Two of the Democrats seeking to challenge U.S. Sen. Tim Scott [met in a] televised debate. Joyce Dickerson and Harry Pavilack both decried problems that have surfaced involving health care for veterans, calling for systemic change to better care for those who have served.

"When a relative or a spouse or a loved one has to lie in a hospital for 21 months before they can get service, that is unacceptable," said Dickerson. "I'm mad as hell about that. I will fight for my vets every step of the way."

Take action against neglect of our veterans

I am the wife of a veteran. Whenever I walk into a VA Hospital alongside my husband, one of the first signs I see posted is that of President Lincoln's promise: "To care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan."

It breaks my heart to learn of the neglectful treatment that veterans from across our great country are experiencing. And in the worst cases, veterans have actually died while waiting for care from several of our VA Hospitals. With proper and timely care, these deaths may have been prevented. We are responsible for looking after those who have looked after us, protecting our freedoms.

Battling this kind of neglect of our veterans is why we need bold and courageous leadership in Washington. As US Senator, I can and will go to battle for our veterans and their families. You can count on me to protect President Lincoln's promise to our veterans. Let's take action!
