Cobb sat down with seven area veterans, including one woman, who voiced a range of concerns regarding affordable and accessible health care, lack of civilian knowledge regarding military life, the privatization of the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs and more.
“It affects people’s lives in northern New York, it’s not theoretical issues just to be discussed in Washington, we need to discuss them here,” she said. “The reality is, repealing the Affordable Care Act will cut off services to people who need health care.”
Tedra knows we must demand that our government makes equally significant investments in support systems for active military, veterans, and their families, both during and after their service.
Tedra Cobb holds a roundtable discussion with veterans to hear first-hand about the experiences they face transitioning to civilian life.
Tedra Cobb criticized Congress for its inability to pass any improvements to the Affordable Care Act and called on Congresswoman Elise Stefanik to either explain the benefits of the American Healthcare Act or reverse course on her votes.
