VFW Testifies on the President’s Budget

National VFW - 6/18/2017

On Wednesday, VFW National Legislative Director Carlos Fuentes testified in strong opposition to a provision in President Trump’s budget proposal, which would cut up to $22,000 from the annual compensation of severely disabled veterans who receive Individual Unemployability benefits from the Department of Veterans Affairs. Fuentes expressed the VFW’s support for continued focus on expansion of VA health care, expediting benefit claims and appeals decisions, mental health awareness, and ensuring VA is ready and able to care for women veterans. Fuentes also discussed VA’s need for additional funds for major construction projects and urged Congress to authorize 27 leases, most of which have been awaiting authorization since 2015.
