KAGEN STANDS UP FOR VETERANS AGAIN

Votes today will help veterans with disability payments, provide protection from home foreclosure

WASHINGTON, DC—Congressman Steve Kagen, M.D. is working hard to build better future for our veterans and their families. Today, two bills passed the U.S. House of Representatives with bipartisan support that would make sure payments for disabled veterans keep pace with the rising cost of living, and prevent mortgage lenders from foreclosing on a veteran’s home after their service.

“As a nation, we have an obligation to provide for those who have selflessly answered the call to defend the liberties that make America great,” said Dr. Kagen.  “They have our backs and we must have theirs.”

“It is a matter of conscience that we take special care of our wounded warriors, and we should do everything in our power to ensure our heroes and their families are never homeless.  The legislation passed today is evidence of our unwavering gratitude for our veterans and proof that we will take care of them when they return home.”

The U.S. House of Representatives unanimously passed the following bills in support of our nation’s veterans today:

H.R. 4667, the Veterans Compensation Cost-of-Living Adjustment Act of 2010: This bill increases the rate of compensation for disabled veterans and their survivors and dependents to keep pace with the rising cost-of-living. The disability COLA would become effective December 1, 2010 and will be equal to that provided on an annual basis to Social Security recipients.

H.R. 3976, the Helping Heroes Keep Their Homes Act of 2009: This bill would reauthorize home-foreclosure protections to prevent lenders from foreclosing on a veteran’s home within nine months after the end of military service. Passage would extend the protections for another five years.
