Editorial: Brown’s measure right for veterans

News

The News-Herald – … When Ohioans talk about paying tribute, we mean it literally.

That was evidenced at the polls this November when voters overwhelmingly supported state Issue 1, which allows for the issuance of bonds to provide compensation to those who served in the Persian Gulf, Afghanistan and Iraq conflicts — as we have done for those who served in World War I, World War II, Korea and Vietnam.

And that's why we support legislation introduced by U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown to help speed up benefits for disabled veterans from both the Social Security Administration and the Department of Veterans Affairs.

Dayton Daily News – Just in time for Veterans Day, U.S. Sen. Sherrod Brown, D-Ohio, introduced legislation that would streamline the process for veterans with disabilities to receive Social Security Disabililty Insurance.

At a press conference Tuesday, Nov. 10, Brown unveiled legislation that would require the Social Security Administration to accept for SSDI any vet who qualifies for disability compensation under Veterans Administration guidelines.

Brown said the Benefit Rating Acceleration for Veteran Entitlements, or BRAVE, Act would eliminate redundancy and put many vets on a “fast track” for acceptance.

Sandusky Register – Ever since he won his first race for the U.S. House in 1992, Sherrod Brown, an Ohio Democrat, has refused to use the federal government's health insurance program.

Instead, as a protest against the fact many American's don't have health insurance, he's obtained it elsewhere.

Few lawmakers in Congress have been as active in the current debate in the Senate over health reform. He has spent much of his time in recent weeks pushing for the "public option"—a government-run health insurance plan that would be available to anyone not currently covered by health insurance.

The Columbus Dispatch – Continuing his "green jobs" campaign, Sen. Sherrod Brown last week touted a report asserting that federal legislation of the type he supports could create more than 51,000 jobs at existing Ohio companies.

The report by the Blue Green Alliance, a consortium of environmental advocates and labor unions, says that federal legislation encouraging clean-energy policies could create hundreds of thousands of new jobs nationwide, and that Ohio would be in the top five for potential jobs in areas such as wind, solar and geothermal energy manufacturing.

That potential can be unleashed by legislation of the type written by the Ohio Democrat, the group says.
