Veterans put everything on the line for us and we, as a nation, have a responsibility to do all we can to assist their transition. That means ensuring timely access to quality health care and GI benefits.
I’ve worked to bring job training, skills transition programs, education, and small business assistance to help veterans convert their experience and discipline into success in the economy.
To help those who provide daily care to many veterans, I supported expansion of the VA’s Caregivers Program. We expanded the term of eligibility for GI Bill loans and I supported laws to provide tax incentives for employers to hire veterans. And in my efforts to address affordable housing, I passed legislation to open up more housing units for homeless veterans.
I’m fighting to ensure all veterans receive the care, benefits and respect they’ve earned through their sacrifice.
