The article presents the message of the president of the Paralyzed Veterans of America (PVA) regarding the shortfall in U.S. government funding for the PVA. The president testified before a joint hearing of the Senate and House Veterans' Affairs Committees and discusses the issues he presented. "The Independent Budget," a document co-authored by the PVA, states that U.S. President George W. Bush's budget is short of $3 billion for the veterans, which would result in insufficient services.
