Miller links homeless vets & contraceptives

February 14, 2012

Yesterday, Congressman Jeff Miller (R-Chumuckla), who chairs the House Committee on Veterans’ Affairs, issued a statement regarding the President’s 2013 Budget for the Department of Veterans Affairs. In it, Miller warns, “VA’s goal to eliminate veteran homelessness by 2015, while laudable, is now squarely in the sights of the administration’s new contraceptive policy, pitting numerous faith-based institutions that provide shelter for our nation’s veterans against their own moral beliefs.”

Seems like a stretch, but I’m just a newspaper publisher. Here is his complete statement.
