"Steve Buyer has one of the worst records in Congress when it comes to supporting Veteran's Benefits legislation. Buyer has been consistent in his opposition to veterans' interests. Many issues have never made it out of the committee he chairs. Last year, he refused to meet jointly with the Senate VA Committee, and refused to allow VSO representatives to provide testimony before his committee--a tradition dating back 50-plus years! Steve Buyer is no friend to America's Veterans, and has hurt veterans more than any Representative I can remember. Ironically, he is himself a veteran of the Gulf War, which is a fact that helps him deflect criticism.
However, the fact that he is a veteran is really irrelevant: this guy's disgraceful record on veteran's issues really speaks for itself."
