Increase the Department of Veteran Affairs Budget
This petition had 111 supporters
12% of the homeless adult population are veterans. There are over 50,000 homeless veterans in the United States. For a country that takes great pride in their flag and national anthem, I feel that we should do a better job of supporting our veterans. They need more support when they come home that includes helping them re-acclimate into life after the war, better access to healthcare, more training and funding for doctors and nurses at the VA. The Department of Veteran Affairs was allocated $78.9 billion dollars out of $574.5 billion of the total defense budget. For the next fiscal year more of that budget should be adapted to the Department of Veteran Affairs. Please sign this petition to bring awareness to the United States Senate Appropriations Subcommittee on Defense when they're drafting their next fiscal budget.
