Budget deal far from perfect but can be fixed

With all the bickering and arguing in Washington, it was nice to see a bipartisan vote in Congress to pass a new budget that both eliminates the risk of another government shutdown and reduces spending. But this budget is far from perfect. Of all the places to find saving in our budget, trimming benefits to our troops in not the answer.

At a recent town hall, Congressman Sean Duffy was pressed on this issue. His record has historically been one of strong support for our veterans.

I was happy to discover that he is co-sponsoring a bill that will remove provisions in the budget that would cut any benefits to veterans or reduce their cost of living adjustments.

Duffy understands that our troops and veterans deserve better. Please call the remainder of Wisconsin’s congressional members and senators, and encourage them to join Sean Duffy on this important fix.
