Ann Kirkpatrick on Homeland Security

 

 


Reform the VA to improve care for veterans

Key messages: Kirkpatrick emphasized her previous congressional experience. "It gives me the ability to go to Congress and build the kind of relationship with my colleagues regardless of party and get things done," Kirkpatrick said.

Kirkpatrick said she wanted to bring more bipartisan collaboration to Washington, D.C. "I'm proud I worked with both parties to reform the VA to improve care for veterans. We need more of that," she said.

Voted with GOP for DoD bill that Obama vetoed

Defense spending authorization: Kirkpatrick voted YEA on May 15, 2015 for HR 1735, the National Defense Authorization Act, which passed by a vote of 269-151. The bill "authorizes FY2016 appropriations and sets forth policies for Department of Defense (DOD) programs and activities, including military personnel strengths. It does not provide budget authority, which is provided in subsequent appropriations legislation." Kirkpatrick voted with 40 Democrats and 228 Republicans to approve the bill. The Senate passed the bill on June 18, 2015, by a vote of 71-25. President Barack Obama vetoed the bill on October 22, 2015.
