ConservaTeaPublicans Hate Vets: Tea Party Cuts Veteran Food Assistance

Last week, Republicans passed a Farm Bill that would kick 170,000 veterans off food assistance.

Faced with a looming, losing debt ceiling fight, Tea Party Republicans have turned to veterans and the poor as a sacrifice designed to appease their austerity-starved base.

We’ve been fighting this battle for a few months, but the stakes are higher than ever this week.

It’s critical that you send a letter to your Senator telling them to oppose any legislation that cuts food assistance for veterans and military family members. You can do that here:

It gets worse…

A Department of Agriculture study last year found that over 5,000 active duty service members receive food assistance. And, in the same year of the study, over $100,000 in food aid was used on military bases.

Hundreds of VoteVets veterans have also told us they’re currently receiving assistance. We’re going to fight for them on this issue.

Thanks for standing with us in that effort.

All the best,

Jon Soltz
Iraq War Veteran and Chairman
