Apr. 26, 2015 - Many congressional Republicans never met a foreign intervention they didn’t like. Some are flat-out warmongers. Sure, some Dems, too. Hillary included. She’s strangely hawkish.
But Republicans increase Pentagon funding even though — because Washington is still operating under the constraints of the sequester — that means they must cut funding to the Environmental Protection Agency, social welfare programs and everything else.
But veterans? Our young whom their policies send off to war? The wounded and the traumatized and the elderly in need of care? Those they stiffed this week.
The House Appropriations Committee hacked the proposed Veterans Affairs construction budget in half, a possibly fatal blow to the long-overdue VA clinic in French Camp.
Wounded old guys in the Mother Lode currently have to get up at 0-dark-hundred and drive all the way downhill and across the Valley to the Bay Area to get care. Ditto younger warriors. Some can visit private doctors, but that is a stop-gap program.
'If, instead of this inane logic, Republican Sherlocks put 1/10th the sleuthing they put into the Benghazi hearings, the VA would be clean as a whistle.' read more>>>
And if the country served, through those they hired to represent, would Demand the Sacrifice they owe, instead of ignoring or out right denying, and that's just on PTS there's still so many more like 'Gulf War Syndrome, the many issues of Veterans, especially from our Wars the Veterans Administration would Finally be fully funded and built as promised!!! Which were Finally being addressed, still grossly under funded and adding two more long wars/occupations, with Sec. Shinseki, target on him after speaking Military truth as to these two wars, VA administration and with full help from the Obama Executive branch, only government branch, and it's Cabinet in trying to actually build what the country not only promised but is it's duty to those few who serve them!!!
Instead of empty hollow words and meme's, symbols and false flag waving, poser, patriotism!!!!
