Tuesday, May 23, 2017 : Act to protect vulnerable vets hurt by Trump's budget



If Congress passes Donald Trump’s budget, it would be an unmitigated disaster for veterans and military families, especially the most vulnerable among them.
  • The budget would cut food assistance benefits. Today, almost 2 million veterans get help putting food on the table. Add to that their family members — spouses and children — and you can begin to see how cruel this budget cut would be.

  • The budget assumes the passage of the Republican health care bill, which would result in up to seven million veterans losing their tax credit for their families.

  • The budget also cuts Social Security Disability Insurance benefits. For almost half of the veterans who receive disability insurance, Social Security represents more than half of their income. Without it, many would fall into poverty.
Here’s the truth: we are going to fight against any effort to pass this budget. We are not going to accept increases to the VA and DoD budgets paid for on the backs of the poor, seniors, and vulnerable veterans. So before Congress votes, make your voice heard:

Sign VoteVets’ petition calling on Congress to REJECT Donald Trump’s budget that takes care away vital services to the poor, seniors, and vulnerable veterans all to shovel more money into the pockets of rich executives.

Donald Trump campaigned as a populist, but as president has acted like more of a plutocrat. This budget is just another example of his effort to reward wealth over work in this country, even when it comes at the expense of people who sacrificed in a way he avoided as a younger man.

Thank you for adding your name in opposition to this budget.

All my best,

Will Fischer
Iraq War Veteran and Director of Government Relations
