Beto O’Rourke Unveils Plan to Improve Care For Veterans

Beto O’Rourke Unveils Plan to Improve Care For Veterans On June 24, presidential contender Beto O’Rourke proposed a four-part plan to improve veteran care.

The first part would be the ending of “forever wars” and the creation of trust funds for all future wars.

These funds would be generated from a new "war tax" which would be paid by non-military taxpayers.

The second part of O’Rourke’s plan would be to improve the current Veterans Affairs (VA) health care system.

This includes filling over 45,000 vacant positions currently at the VA.

The third part would be to ensure all veterans are provided with equal treatment regardless of sex, race or sexual orientation.

O’Rourke plans to enforce this by requiring the VA to cover the full spectrum of women’s health care, including reproductive health, as well as offer care that is inclusive of all troops, regardless of their sexual orientations and gender identities.

Finally, O’Rourke would expand transition assistance programs to help veterans successfully return to civilian life.

This includes offering “reverse boot camps” as well as directing government resources to prevent veteran homelessness.
