house Bill H.R. 450

Should Defrauding Veterans Be Criminalized?

Argument in favor

Veterans — especially those in low-income housing and assisted living facilities — are one of the most vulnerable populations in the U.S., and they should be protected against fraudsters targeting their well-deserved veterans’ benefits.

Talk about defrauding. We have a president that is attempting to redefine dignity and respect and honesty to mean anything Donald does or says. The blemish in our highest political level has tarnished every level of our political scene. You can't just unsee corruption.

Argument opposed

Financial fraud is already a crime in all fifty states, so there shouldn’t be a need for another specific federal law criminalizing fraud against veterans. The crimes described in this bill should already be illegal in all states.

Isn’t it a crime to defraud anyone already? Just more useless shit, trying to make it look like they’re doing something? Where are the education, healthcare, climate change, air and water pollution, etc., bills? Quit this bullshit and get on to something of substance, you assholes!

Why do we we have to have a law for every particular thing. Why don’t we just enforce the laws that are already on the books. The same severe sentence for white collar crime.

    Committing fraud against ANYONE is a crime and should be prosecuted whether they are a veteran or the elderly. Enforce the laws we have and don’t waste time on specific groups.

    Fraud laws already exist and this is special interests focused. Politician’s fraud against the American People, should be criminalized.

    Defrauding anyone should be criminal, no matter veteran or not. Our politicians should be facing criminal charges when they defraud citizens. Destroying evidence is a crime! Bring Hillary up on criminal charges!

    I got news for members of Congress: Fraud is already a crime! We don’t need another law to criminalize it! We just simply need to ensure that we enforce these laws seriously in order to protect veterans and the rest of the U.S. population.

    Our Veterans go through hell serving us and following orders of some of our stupid politicians, the least we can do for them is support them 100% for their sacrifice. Anyone defrauding them should have the book thrown at them and the ket thrown away because if they can defraud those that fight for their freedoms, then they are true criminals that would defraud anyone they can.

    House Bill H.R. 450 AKA the Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act I’m in very strong support of and recommend the passage of the House Bill H.R. 450 AKA the Preventing Crimes Against Veterans Act of 2019 — would make it a crime to knowingly engage in any scheme to defraud a veteran of his or her veterans’ benefits, or to knowingly engage in fraud in connection with obtaining veterans’ benefits for that individual. Anyone convicted of defrauding veterans could be fined, imprisoned for up to five years, or both.  Veterans — especially those in low-income housing and assisted living facilities — are one of the most vulnerable populations in the U.S., and they should be protected against fraudsters targeting their well-deserved veterans’ benefits.
