McMorris Rodgers supports veterans

Letter to the Editor


August 30, 2018

One of Cathy McMorris Rodgers’ signature campaign promises has always been that she will help get veterans the care they deserve and that she has the military’s back. Cathy has fulfilled this promise in bounds.

In just the last few years, Cathy has been instrumental in getting military personnel the largest pay raise in nine years.

Cathy also sponsored the “Faster Care for Veterans Act,” which will modernize the system used by the VA. Among other things, veterans will now have the option of scheduling their appointments online. This is a simple service which is available in the private sector, and should be in the VA system. As a vet I thank Cathy.

If it weren’t for Cathy, Fairchild Air Force Base would have nowhere near the status that it does today. It may even have been closed if not for our Congresswoman. In 2017, the Air Force announced 12 new KC-135 tankers for reassignment to Fairchild. This has made it the largest KC-135 base in the country.

This shows us the choice we have in this election. Someone who has the back of the military and veterans: Cathy McMorris Rodgers. Or someone whose primary interest is raising our taxes.
