VA benefits in peril in government shutdown
(October 1, 2013) The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) has warned that funding for veterans benefits "will run out by late October" if the federal government shuts down. At that point, VA will be unable to make any benefits payments.
"Congress has an obligation to put veterans ahead of politics," said American Legion National Commander Daniel M. Dellinger. "The fact that funding for VA benefits could disappear in a month ought to be incentive enough for our elected leaders to achieve a solution. Our federal government must never put veterans in this kind of position. It is imperative that Congress understands that The American Legion strongly objects to the cessation of any VA benefits or services that put our country’s veterans and loved ones at risk,” Dellinger said.
