Standing up for our veterans

The men and women who put their lives on the line to serve our country deserve world-class care when they come home. Yet every year we lose thousands of our veterans to the invisible wounds of war.

My goal is to ensure that every veteran and active member of the military has access to the treatment and support they need, including screenings for post-traumatic stress disorder. To meet this goal, we need to support and expand veterans’ health clinics, hire more mental health professionals, and increase outreach. In Congress, I’ll be an advocate for veterans, holding private insurers accountable when they wrongfully deny services to veterans and making sure that every veteran has access to safe, supportive housing—so that no veteran experiences homelessness.
