The GOP'S PROP..........EXACTLY....
In Response to Re: HOW Can They Even Think of Doing This To Our VETERANS????:
Sadly, some in Congress are incapable of multi-tasking and seeing as how the Congress is complaining that all those debt limit and shutdown tasks were exhausting, they have now abandoned DC for two weeks.
Veterans are the GOP favority prop - I' sure hope that they understand that this was due to the unwillingness of the GOP to do anything other than whine, complain and threatened to take everyone hostage that led to this decrease in TANF funding.
The under discussed GOP negotiations during the shut-down / debt limit talks was that GOP were more than willing - they actually discussed cutting Tricare - another, Throw Military Under the BUS.
When Paul Ryan came out today and said no to increase to FED - if his wet-dream comes to fruition - more Service personnel - both active and retired will be dissed, sigh.
The reminder is that the estimated long term healthcare cost for Veterans of Iraq and AF is estimated to cost $3T - but GOP didn't seem to care at the time - why would the deem it appropriate to acknowledge now? They have admitted that they hadn't "assumed that soldiers would survive on the battefield - which means that learned nothing since VietNam....it makes me ill.
