Thank you for your support on insurance scam

Dear Supporter,

As a veteran of the Iraq war and as an American citizen, I shared your outrage to learn that life insurance companies were banking millions of dollars in profit off the death benefits paid to military families. Rather than paying the benefits directly to families as requested, insurance companies kept the money in their own accounts and earned a much higher interest rate than was paid to the families of the deceased. It’s wrong, and they need to stop.

I’ve called on these companies to end these deceptive practices and return any profit they made off these arrangements to the families. As we speak, I’m working with my colleagues on legislation to end this practice and ensure military families get their rightful benefits.

That families who have lost so much – who have already made the ultimate sacrifice -  deserve better. I thank all of you at Vote Vets for joining with me to fight to end this practice and stand up for our brothers- and sisters-in-arms.
