Of all of the people employed by the federal government, our military servicemen, servicewomen, and veterans are those that deserve to have the promises of care that the federal government makes.
There are horrible bureaucratic stumbling blocks caused by the VA for getting veterans care, and it is absolutely my role as a representative of Congress to streamline solutions and beat down the stumbling blocks that are making it increasingly difficult for these men and women who have served and are serving our country.
In addition to this, protecting the property rights, wealth, and soundness of the money of these veterans is absolutely necessary for their long-term ability to live and prosper. Our veterans, in many cases, have been abandoned by the federal government and should serve as a warning to us all about the inherent dangers in depending upon government for care. As we find solutions, many of our strategies will be at the county and State level, where it is easier for veterans and their caretakers to access and have oversight of the processes.
As a former military spouse, I am well aware of many of the intricacies of serving, as well as the painful effects of post traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). It is absolutely our job as community members and benefactors of our veterans for us to embrace these men and women and find ways to care for them in our own communities, when the federal government fails us.
I want to fulfill the promises that we make to our veterans, and that means finding ways to work with the federal government, as well as outside of the dangerous bureaucracy when these veterans need immediate solutions.
