Pramila Jayapal: Ensure disabled veterans receive needed assistance

As a member of the Healthcare Committee in the State Senate, Pramila worked to ensure disabled veterans received the medical assistance they needed by helping make it easier to access supplemental benefits for disabled care. In Congress, Pramila will work to ensure veterans receive the quality care they deserve by holding the VA accountable while protecting it from shortsighted cuts and investing in proper care for our veterans, including expanding mental health services.

Taking care of the men and women who have risked their lives in order to protect our freedoms means so much more than ensuring their medical needs--it means helping them succeed when they get home by providing them with the education and jobs that will allow them to thrive in civilian life. It's unacceptable that any veteran would face homelessness after making the sacrifices they have for our country.

The debate hit on several topics related to the military. Rossi said he is waiting for a study that is under way before deciding whether gays should be allowed to serve openly in the military.

Murray said she believes the "don't ask, don't tell" policy should be tossed and that sexual orientation should not be cause to discharge anyone in the military.
