Having worn the uniform for 20 years, and now having a son in the Army, no one will fight for our veterans more than I will. That's why my first bill introduced as a member of Congress is a pro-veteran bill -- it would ensure that Gold Star families never miss a payment, even during a lapse in appropriations. I am pro-veteran because the men and women who serve in our armed forces are the greatest among us. Every effort must be made to give them the very best. That's why I also maintain that not one dollar of foreign U.S. aid or assistance should be offered or awarded until every dollar owed to every veteran is paid. Also, I believe military readiness is the acquisition of the right people, with the right leader, right equipment, and right training. It’s time government moves at the speed of business, which is the speed of now.
