In response to the Administration’s budget request for Fiscal Year 2020 for the Department of Veterans Affairs, DAV, Paralyzed Veterans of America and Veterans of Foreign Wars of the U.S. — authors of The Independent Budget — today issued the following statement:

“The FY 2020 budget request falls short of meeting the needs of VA and does not fully fund the VA MISSION Act or veterans’ health care programs. Although the Administration’s budget request provides a 7 percent increase in the level of discretionary funding, when factoring in VA’s own estimates of the cost of implementing the VA MISSION Act, the shift of $5.5 billion from mandatory to discretionary funding from the Choice program, and the increased cost for providing medical care due to inflation and other factors, VA will not have sufficient resources to meet the health care needs of America’s veterans.
