Letter: Advocating For Dogs

Letter to the Editor

Kudos to military veteran Representative Ted Lieu for his outstanding leadership on stopping wasteful government spending on outdated and inhumane dog experiments.

Last month, President Trump signed a spending bill that includes language cutting funds for painful dog experiments at the Department of Veterans Affairs. As our watchdog group first exposed, for years, the VA was secretly spending our tax dollars to give puppies heart attacks, cut into their brains and sever their spinal cords. On Capitol Hill, Lieu helped lead a bipartisan coalition that has been tirelessly working to end this waste and abuse opposed by a supermajority of voters, most veterans and many national veterans’ groups.

Washington needs more lawmakers like Lieu who are dedicated advocates for taxpayers and man’s best friend.
