Veterans

Our nation’s veterans and wounded warriors have sacrificed in defense of our country. Their dedication and commitment, along with that of their families, has ensured our freedom and should never be taken for granted. 

Our veterans deserve the absolute highest quality medical care and benefits for their service. We must ensure that returning military members have access to every benefit they have been promised, As such, Congress should focus on stringent oversight of the VA to ensure veterans are getting the services they need. I will continue to put our veterans first, and fight for legislation that removes barriers for our returning veterans.

This was an unnecessary shutdown by Senate Democrats to negotiate an issue completely unrelated to keeping the government open. Today's legislation is responsible and it funds priorities for our state including children's health insurance, Great Lakes protection, and national security. Our country faces important issues including immigration and a long-term budget solution and I look forward to working on them.
