CBO: Veterans’ Issues

CBO Logo

Congressional Budget Office:

“Federal programs to support veterans received about $125 billion in funding in 2011. That funding covers a wide array of services, including pensions, health care, education benefits, life insurance programs, compensation for injuries, and home loans. CBO analyzes the budgetary and broader impacts of those services and of proposals to change those services.”

See CBO Veterans’ Issues page.

“Since its founding in 1974, the Congressional Budget Office has produced independent, nonpartisan, timely analysis of economic and budgetary issues to support the Congressional budget process. The agency’s long tradition of nonpartisanship is evident in each of the dozens of reports and hundreds of cost estimates its economists and policy analysts produce each year. CBO analyses do not make policy recommendations, and each report and cost estimate discloses our assumptions and methodologies. All CBO employees are appointed solely on the basis of professional competence, without regard to political affiliation.”
