"I will not be the guy to allow the administration to chip away at VA health care," said Sen. Jon Tester of Montana, the top Democrat on the Senate Veterans' Affairs Committee, pointing to a proposed VA budget that would give double-digit increases to outside care while funding for VA programs remains mostly flat. Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wash., referring to proposed pilot programs that could lead to the closing of VA facilities, pledged to "fight them with everything I have."This is not about Congress telling us they have no obligation to fix healthcare for our sake. It is not about Congress telling us that they have no intention of taking care of anything when the leaders are more interested in destroying everything the non-rich need to survive.
This is about the men and women who loved this country so much, they were willing to die for it!
The same politicians telling us that the healthcare programs are terrible, want to send our veterans into that mess! Are they out of their fucking minds! Veterans are not civilians. They pre-paid for their benefits and it has been under the control of the House and Senate since 1946. Who the hell do they think they're fooling? Time to castrate this clusterfuck!
This President's budget is a cut to veterans and an increase into the pockets of private healthcare providers. What makes all of this even worse is the percentage of the compensation cut hitting senior veterans and families is going toward paying for what THEY ALREADY PAID FOR WHEN THEY SERVED! A VA that works for their sake.
Looks like the only promise veterans can trust is that sooner or later, they'd be screwed by politicians! These are disabled veterans we're talking about!!!!
So when exactly does the rest of the country stand up and fight for our veterans? They are dying to know that one!
