No, Beto O'Rourke did not dismiss veterans and the elderly

...

According to ProPublica’s list of the legislation O’Rourke sponsored during 2017-2018, he backed six bills related to veterans, including the Get Veterans a Better Doctor Now Act and the Enhanced Veteran Healthcare Act of 2017.

During O’Rourke’s failed bid to oust Ted Cruz from the U.S. Senate, the Texas Tribune asked both lawmakers what three legislative accomplishments they were most proud of.

"The O’Rourke campaign passed along three measures that the El Paso Democrat saw signed into law by Trump," the Tribune reported, including two bills related to veterans and service members. "O’Rourke was the primary sponsor of the Honor our Commitment Act, which expanded mental health care through the VA to veterans with ‘other-than-honorable’ discharges from the military. The measure was included in an omnibus spending bill in March."

The Tribune notes a blog post O’Rourke wrote earlier on March 2017 describing veteran suicides.

"This figure shows an unacceptable gap in health care coverage for our nation’s most vulnerable veterans," O’Rourke said in the blog post on Medium.
