Sanders wants to beef up veterans benefits

Posted: Updated:

Sen. Bernie Sanders, I-Vermont, is sponsoring legislation to beef up veterans benefits.

Sanders has been critical of federal budget cuts that target cost of living increases for veterans. His bill, which has bipartisan support, would insure that veterans benefits would rise to keep pace with inflation. Sanders says the nation is obligated to provide adequate financial compensation to veterans and their families.
