ST. LOUIS — Sen. Claire McCaskill will be in St. Louis Tuesday to detail a new program that she says is aimed at improving the experience for veterans at VA health care centers in Missouri.

Details will be announced at a late-morning news conference at Soldiers Memorial Military Museum.

The effort follows sterilization problems at the John Cochran VA Medical Center in St. Louis. Lawmakers say they have also heard complaints about customer service at the St. Louis center.

Those liberal democrats are trying to help veterans. They do this because they want to destroy you because they hate your freedom.

She did such a good job at it with her husbands nursing homes. Why not the VA.
