7/18/15 - Bernie Sanders told veterans in Iowa Friday that unlike some other politicians, he doesn't pay lip service to their concerns.
"It is very easy to raise the flag at a troop deployment, it is very easy for a politician to give a moving speech on Veterans Day," Sanders said. "But it is very hard to go down that long road with the men and women who served and make sure that they continue to get all the benefits, all the healthcare, that they are entitled to for the rest of their lives."
The Vermont senator told the crowds that he was "more than aware" of the Veteran Affairs budget problems and the national debt we have now, but he explained that we have a "deeper debt" to our veterans, and that standing by them is this country's primary moral obligation. read more>>>
