Matt Gaetz on Homeland Security

 

 


$3 million to fund "Building Homes for Heroes

Northwest Florida is privileged to have bases such as Eglin AFB and Pensacola NAS, and we owe our freedom to the brave men & women that serve there. Matt co-sponsored the Florida GI Bill, offering veterans hiring preferences and in-state college tuition.

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.

Oppose any automatic cuts to defense spending

National Security: Keeping the American people safe at home and abroad is the Federal government's most important duty. Matt knows that a well-trained and fully-funded military is critical in ensuring our national security and fighting terrorism. We must project global strength and send our enemies a clear message that we will not tolerate any acts that threaten our safety and security.

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.

Supports maintaining a numerically superior nuclear arsenal.

Gaetz supports the AFA survey question on defense superiority

The American Family Association Action Voter Guide asked if candidates agree or disagree with the statement, 'The United States must maintain a nuclear arsenal that is safe, reliable, modern and numerically superior to those of potential adversaries.' American Family Association Action (AFA Action) produces the online "iVoterGuide" for selected state and federal races. The mission of AFA Action is to inform and mobilize individuals to strengthen the biblical foundations of America.
