house Bill H.R. 3218

Expanding the GI Bill

Argument in favor

The GI Bill has helped veterans obtain higher education since 1944, and it should be modernized and expanded to reflect modern veterans’ educational aspirations and realities. After serving this country, veterans should be able to pursue whatever educational or vocational training they’re interested in, and the GI Bill should help pay for it.

Truly a great bill that helps thousands of veterans that have been left behind by the current GI Bill. This will serve all future veterans without costing tax payers anything. If you would like more information visit forevergibill.org or google HR 3218.

Argument opposed

The GI Bill already funds the vast majority of schools that veterans may choose to attend — it shouldn’t be expanded any further, as doing so might significantly increase its cost down the line. Likewise, expanding the eligibility criteria for GI Bill benefits is going to increase the program’s costs down the line, as more people are eligible for them.

No yes vote without more details. This bill needs to prevent taxpayer money from going to (and veterans from being taken by) scams like Trump University.

    This should not reduce the BAH of veterans. BAH is the life line that we use and reducing it puts us in a tougher situation financially. It's already not enough in alot of areas(depending on where you live). Also it would be great to add current GI bill elligable Vets to the non-expert ion aspect of it.
