Mandatory Funding for Veterans Healthcare Gaining Momentum

 On March 19th, while visiting the VA Medical Center in Canandaigua New York, Senator Charles Schumer took time to meet with Operation Firing For Effect representatives and to sign their Resolution calling for full mandatory funding of veteran’s healthcare and services. On March 8, 2007, Senator Schumer told a Washington, DC newspaper; “Nationwide, veterans are facing a healthcare funding shortfall of more than $2.8 billion in the midst of a growing nationwide scandal over inadequate treatment of wounded soldiers returning from Iraq and Afghanistan”, Schumer said. Senator Charles Schumer has pledged to promote, support, and vote for full mandatory funding of veteran’s healthcare and services. Senator Schumer is merely the most recent to sign OFFE’s Resolution. To date, the Resolution has been adopted and passed by several U.S. northeast cities and townships, including the Mayor of Chicago, Illinois, Richard Daley, the Governor of Oregon, Ted Kulongoski, plus over 500,000 labor union members in New York State.
