Elections Remove Top Military & Veterans Advocates From Congress
Veterans Furious Over Lack of Support in Washington D.C.
Tuesday's elections swept some key Democrats from House of Representatives, including the chairman of the House Armed Services Committee and the first Iraq war veteran elected to Congress. Also gone is a senior member of the House Appropriations Committee who was one of the key proponents of improvement in military family housing and barracks, the House Budget Committee chairman who made sure there was money for improvement in military pay and benefits, and chairman of the veterans' disability assistance subcommittee who have been pushing to eliminate the backlog of veterans' benefits claims while trying to reduce the number of errors.
