From San Diego:

Thank you for co-sponsoring the "Protect the VA Health Care Act" (H.R. 3895) that excludes Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) health care programs from automatic Sequestration cuts mandated by the Budget Control Act. The Bill will let our injured and wounded veterans know that their health care will not be cut. Your support for this legislation is appreciated.

Congressman Filner Replies:

Thank you for your kind words about my support for protecting VA health care from the possible effects of sequestration.

As the Ranking Member on the House Veterans' Affairs Committee, I wholeheartedly believe that our country owes a sacred debt to the men and women of our armed forces who render honorable military service! Be assured that I will always stand with our veterans and fight to protect veterans' health care.

I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue!
