Protecting and Fighting For Our Veterans
Our veterans have made immense sacrifices to protect our freedoms and sacred way
of life as Americans. We will never be able to fully repay the debt we owe them, but
Congresswoman Lauren Boebert has fought every day for responsible funding and
meaningful resources for 3rd District veterans to make sure they are taken care of
when they retire from duty.
Read more on how Congresswoman Boebert has stood up for veterans in the 3rd
District and across the country every single day:
-SUPPORTING PRO-VETERAN LEGISLATION
Congresswoman Boebert has voted for four major veteran bills that were signed into
law, including funding for permanent benefits for veterans and a significant 2022
COLA increase for veterans receiving compensation for their service. These were
common-sense bills that directly impacted and improved the lives of veterans in the
-INTRODUCING BIPARTISAN AMENDMENTS TO INCREASE FUNDING FOR VETERANS
As part of the 2023 VA Appropriations Bill that passed through the House,
Congresswoman Boebert introduced and passed with bipartisan approval six
different amendments that increased funding by millions for veterans on issues like
prosthetic research, suicide awareness, burial services, and extended care for
veterans. Congresswoman Boebert introduced more pro-veteran amendments than
any other Member of Congress as part of the most recent VA Appropriations bill.
-HOLDING BUREAUCRATS ACCOUNTABLE AND IMPROVING SERVICE FOR
When government bureaucrats refused to come to work after the COVID pandemic,
Congresswoman Boebert held them accountable by demanding they return to the
office to start addressing the unacceptable backlog of VA cases. Thanks to
Congresswoman Boebert’s efforts, bureaucrats returned to working in-person and
we saw the backlog of VA cases dramatically reduced.
-FIGHTING FOR SOLUTIONS THAT WORK, NOT BILLS THAT WASTE
Veterans deserve legislation that makes sense and invests resources toward helping
them get the care they deserve, not wasteful & frivolous spending that creates more
problems. Congresswoman Boebert has responsibly voted no on bills that drastically
increase our backlog of VA cases without a meaningful solution to fix the problem or
long-term revenue to pay for the costs. Rep. Boebert will always stand with veterans
when resources go to improving their care and bills are paid for without saddling
future generations with more debt.
