Veteran Service Organizations Urge $72.9 Billion Investment in Veterans' Health Care and...   

Full press release can be read at... http://bit.ly/Lyeqny

The Independent Budget coauthors (AMVETS, DAV, Paralyzed Veterans of America (Paralyzed Veterans) and the Veterans of Foreign Wars (VFW) are urging the Administration and Congress to provide $72.9 billion to sufficiently meet veterans’ health care and benefits needs.

Among the key issues is the serious underfunding of Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) construction accounts.

AMVETS National Commander John Mitchell addressed the breakdown in the appropriations process and effect on VA operations:

“The significant delay in the Administration’s funding recommendations for VA in FY 2015 and the ongoing breakdown in the appropriations process are major concerns about how program funding may be impacted going forward, and will most certainly have a negative effect on all VA operations,” stated Mitchell. “Underlying the issues, are the accountability of our Congress and the Administration to not forget the sacred obligation they have to those who serve and protect this country. Our nation must remain steadfast and committed to ensuring that our military, veterans, their eligible family members and survivors receive their earned benefits in a timely and efficient manner.”
