Today, First Liberty Institute filed a lawsuit against Department of the Air Force alleging violations of the Freedom Of Information Act (FOIA) for wrongfully withholding the results of an investigation from First Liberty and the American public. The Air Force’s refusal to turn over the results of its investigation has caused undue delay to First Liberty’s representation of its client, thirty-three year Air Force veteran Oscar Rodriguez, as he seeks justice for an incident that occurred over one year ago.

Today, most Social Security beneficiaries rely on their earned benefits for at least half of their income. And they count on the annual Social Security Cost-of-Living Adjustment (COLA) to help offset rising costs. Yet, for the past several years in a row, seniors have received a less than 2% COLA — and in 2010, 2011 and 2016 the COLA was actually zero — which basically amounts to a benefit cut each year.

Agent Orange/Blue Water Offset - Survey

User Rating: 0 / 5

Star InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar InactiveStar Inactive

FRA supports the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act” (H.R. 299/S. 422), sponsored by Rep. David Valadao (CA) and Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand (NY) respectively. These bills would allow “Blue Water” veterans who served off the coast of Vietnam to be compensated for service connected disabilities related to their exposure to Agent Orange herbicide. Legislators want to pass the “Blue Water Navy Vietnam Veterans Act” (H.R. 299/S. 422)  but need a cost offset. They have suggested rounding down to the nearest dollar monthly veterans benefits. Please let us know if think we should support this proposal.
