Senator Bernie Sanders is right. We should use money authorized for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan to pay for veterans' benefits, including reversing the cuts to military pensions in the Ryan-Murray budget deal.
Why is this important?
As economists Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes have argued, part of the cost of a war is caring for veterans afterwards.
Now Senator Bernie Sanders is proposing to use money from the war account to pay for his veterans' benefits bill, including reversing the cuts to military pensions. 18 military and veterans organizations have backed the Sanders bill. 
Urge Congress and the President to support Sanders' proposal to use war funding to pay for veterans' benefits.
