Veterans

We can never fully repay the brave men and women in uniform who put their lives on the line for the sake of our country. It is our chief obligation to provide America’s heroes with the best health care and treatments possible. That calls for drastically reforming the Department of Veteran Affairs to end bureaucratic incompetence, crack down on corruption, and streamline the process to prevent long waits for care. We owe it to our veterans to go the extra mile to provide the care they earned.

In my first year, we achieved the largest percentage increase in the VA budget in 30 years. And we're going to keep making historic investments in our veterans. When Richard came to the Oval Office, we talked about what those automatic budget cuts -- sequestration -- could mean for the VA. So my administration has made it clear: Your veteran's benefits are exempt from sequestration. They are exempt.
