Veterans Affairs

It is very important to honor and support to our veterans of the Armed Services.  I recognize the sacrifice they make to protect this nation. It is our responsibility to take care of these soldiers and to give them proper health care and assistance once they return home from war.    I support expanded health care programs, disability compensation, and providing housing assistance for very low-income veterans.  I will support SBA programs that provide assistance to veterans to be entrepreneurs.  I will continue to working with my colleagues to improve the lives of our veterans.
