The VA has proposed changes to the way it calculates Veterans’ disability benefits, as well as other changes to the delivery of Veterans benefits and services. These proposed changes have resulted in a Congressional inquiry, which is looking into whether or not the VA acted properly in proposing these changes.
The Congressional inquiry is looking into whether or not the VA considered all of the potential impacts of its proposed changes before making them public.
The VA has defended its proposed changes, saying that they are necessary to ensure that Veterans benefits are being delivered in a fair and equitable way. The VA has also said that it will work with Congress to address any concerns that may arise from the proposed changes.
It is unclear at this time when or if the VA’s proposed changes will go into effect. The Congressional inquiry is still ongoing, and it is possible that the VA’s proposed changes could be modified or even scrapped altogether as a result of the inquiry.
Here is the letter I wrote to my congressman:
Dear Senator Simpson,
My name is Combat Craig, and I’m a 100% service-disabled veteran of the U.S. Air Force, and proud resident of the great state of Idaho! I’m also a devoted supporter of various small businesses that serve veterans in Idaho.
I am deeply concerned about the proposed changes to the VA rating schedule which can be found here.
I left a comment during the active commenting period but I fear that my voice will not be heard. You are my elected congressmen and a strong supporter of veterans. This is the main reason I voted for you and I urge you to join Congressmen Jim Costa with his inquiry to the proposed changes to the VA rating schedule which can be found in the March 12 press release he posted on his website which can be found here.
Thank you for your continued support of fellow veterans in Idaho and all veterans worldwide – you have my vote –and I look forward to collaborating with you and your office for the official response and any proposed bills to help veterans.
U.S. Air Force 100% Disabled Veteran
Proud Idaho Resident, Voter, and Supporter of Your Re-Election
