Time for Congress to put veterans funding 1st
from The Hill
Whether the government shutdown is long or short, Washington's continuing failure to resolve budget disputes disrupts processing and delivery of vital benefits to our nation's veterans. According to the Department of Veterans Affairs, a prolonged government shutdown will close many VA offices to veterans seeking benefits, delay even further the hundreds of thousands of veterans' claims still awaiting decisions and soon result in halting disability compensation payments to 3.8 million veterans, their dependents and survivors, many of whom have no other sources of support. This is outrageous and unacceptable; worse it was predictable and preventable.
