First, stop with these counterproductive stopgap measures. Really focus on fixing the VA as part of our promise to those who risk their lives to protect our country and fight our wars, as well as a host of other duties here and around the world. Stop using them as playthings and political props. Second, drop this obscene abomination called the AHCA, since its only real purpose is to create a foundation for greater tax cuts for the already wealthy (with a snide swipe at the Obama presidency thrown in for good measure -- there are no actual health care or coverage benefits foreseen in the House travesty or what we've 'accidentally' seen from the Senate's secretive plotting). Third, work across the aisle, with health care experts, doctors, patients, civil society groups and others here and internationally to fix what's wrong with the already existing ACA. Fourth, stop trying to sabotage the ACA while all this goes on. You're actually playing with people's lives!
