AMVETS' letter to Congress on health care reform

Last night, President Obama addressed Congress on his proposals for health care reform. In the wake of the speech, AMVETS leaders remain skeptical of the current bill, H.R. 3200, and its potential impact on the veterans' community.

This morning, AMVETS National Legislative Director Ray Kelley sent a letter to House Veterans Affairs Committee Chairman Bob Filner (D-Calif.) asking Congress to amend the bill to reflect the best interests of the veterans' community, ensuring that all veterans who rely on the VA will be considered to have adequate health coverage and that veterans and their dependents still have access to the exchange option to sufficiently satisfy their health care needs without penalty.

A copy of the letter is included here:
