• Make all veterans and their families eligible for Medicaid coverage

  • Strengthen access to mental health care for veterans, especially those with PTSD and their families

  • Improve transportation to medical services

 

At present, only 40% of our nation’s veterans are eligible for medical services through the Veteran’s Administration (VA). This is morally-reprehensible as it is our undeniable responsibility to look after our veterans. We must make all veterans and their families eligible for Medicaid. We must strengthen mental health care, including treatment and support for individuals experiencing the effects of PTSD and their families. Improving transportation to medical services will also improve access to these critical resources. We must alleviate as best we can the disadvantages that our veterans experience because of their honorable service to our country.
