Matt Gaetz on Homeland Security
Matt has obtained over $3 Million to fund "Building Homes for Heroes," a program that provides housing for wounded veterans and modifies their homes to meet their needs. While serving on the Florida Defense Support Task Force, Matt fought to secure funding for world-class care to help re-habilitate wounded warriors so that they can continue to fight for our country.
When it comes to caring for our veterans Matt believes that the VA doesn't just need to be reformed--it needs to be abolished and replaced with a veteran-led system that allows our heroes to bypass bureaucracy and get their care from the providers they choose.
Sequestration: Irresponsibly cutting defense spending is a national security risk that won't solve our budget crisis. We must cut spending and balance our budget with long-term solutions--not on the backs of our service members and defense community. Matt will always stand up for our military community and oppose any automatic cuts to defense spending that jeopardize our national security and damage the economies of areas like Northwest Florida.
