Letter | Toomey can’t reinvent himself

Sen. Pat Toomey has consistently voted against basically any help for America’s veterans, to include funding for VA hospitals and education benefits for veterans. As an Army veteran, I have a responsibility to remind voters of these facts because now Toomey is trying to reinvent himself as a veteran supporter. With great fanfare, he recently signed a Republican bill to let veterans sue the VA. This bill does nothing to fix the lack of resources at the VA, a shortage that his votes have worsened. He even bragged about how this bill adds no “burden” on the taxpayer, as if fulfilling our obligations to our wounded veterans is a burden rather than a sacred promise.
