"Whether or not you have health insurance right now, the reforms we seek will bring stability and security that you don't have today.

This isn't about politics. This is about people's lives. This is about people's businesses. This is about our future."

Rob, thank you for advocating the critical importance and national priority of accessible, quality and affordable Veteran's Health Care.

The national and local American Legion are invaluable champions for our Veterans. You can link to the national website at http://www.legion.org/homepage.php

Statement from American Legion Press Secretary Robert Gibbs on the President's Strong Commitment to America's Veterans:

"The President has consistently stated that he is committed to working with veterans on the details of the 2010 VA Budget Proposal. The President demonstrated his deep commitment to veterans by proposing the largest increase in the VA budget in 30 years and calling VSO and MSO leaders into the White House for an unprecedented meeting to discuss various aspects of the budget proposal. In considering the third party billing issue, the administration was seeking to maximize the resources available for veterans; however, the President listened to concerns raised by the VSOs that this might, under certain circumstances, affect veterans and their families' ability to access health care. Therefore, the President has instructed that its consideration be dropped. The President wants to continue a constructive partnership with the VSOs and MSOs and is grateful to those VSOs and MSOs who have worked in good faith with him on the budget proposal"
