Cut the Joint Strike Fighter, not funds for veterans' benefits
from The Baltimore Sun
U.S. Sen. Barbara Mikulski deserves praise for trying to reduce the claims backlog at the Department of Veterans Affairs. Congress should also work on repealing sequestration, which is hurting veterans in particular. Due to the sequester, veterans are being shut out of understaffed Tricare clinics that have furloughed medical staff. Sixty thousand homeless veterans are losing federal housing aid. And children attending military operated schools are losing critical school days.
