Veterans, a General Statement Santorum: Having been born and raised on the grounds of a Department of Veterans Affairs facility, I strongly believe that Congress has a special obligation to protect the interests of our nation's veterans. With over 1.2 million veterans living in Pennsylvania, and millions more throughout our nation, I remain committed to ensuring that our veterans receive the benefits entitled to them. I value the sacrifices of the men and women who proudly served in our military. The United States should be proud of our veterans and commemorate their sacrifices with the respect that they have earned. I believe that service to our country has entitled veterans to unique benefits that are available to no other single group of Americans. The care and medical treatment of our nation's veterans and their families and the efforts to improve their healthcare delivery system remain very important to me.

Veterans, a General Statement Paul: Many politicians talk about honoring our veterans and their sacrifices. Yet so often the rhetoric obscures the reality that the federal government treats veterans badly. Congress wastes billions of dollars on countless unconstitutional programs, but fails to provide adequately for the men and women who carry out the most important constitutional function: national defense. Any nation willing to ask its men and women to risk their lives serving overseas must also be willing to fulfill the promises that were made to them when they enlisted in our country's service. We cannot provide adequate care with a VA that is run like the IRS. Having served in the U.S. Air Force for five years, I feel an obligation to our veterans and current armed forces. As a congressman, I have fought hard to make sure veterans receive the care and respect they deserve. I will continue that fight as president.

Veterans' Health and Medical Care Paul: I support restoring health care coverage to retired service members and reducing their out-of-pocket costs, and I also support fully investigating the causes of Gulf War illnesses and providing all necessary treatments to veterans suffering from those illnesses.
Source: Ron Paul (02/25/2008)
 
Disabled Veterans Health Care Paul: I support immediately ending the requirement that disabled veterans give up their military retirement pay in order to receive VA disability benefits.
