War on Veteran's

We are hearing more and more about suicides in the military. This is an incredible disgrace to the nation. These folks come home and need help and they get the run around. Many who suffer from PTSD are put on waiting lists and then when they finally get to see a professional they are given medication that will likely do more harm than good.

Homeless veterans is a disgrace! Jobless veterans - a disgrace!

We need to do what ever it takes to help our veterans - and we should have been doing this from the get go as soon as the Iraq fiasco began, but this is not happening.

It should be our number one top priority - raise taxes if need be, in fact definitely raise taxes immediately to get the job done!

 

Peace!

It's interesting how those who most honor our veterans with lip service are often the most against raising taxes. And they are often the most hawkish for new wars with no real goal other than profit for the military-industrial complex.

In fact, when you go to the sites that rate congress on their vet-friendy legislating, almost without exception the democrats earn high marks, while the republicans are in dismal, hostile yerritory.

numbers of people who actually vote don't seem to matter these days. In the case of the Republicans, they'd rather the turnout was low.

 

Peace!

What is worse is many of the veterans are being robbed by congress.

The fact is that recently to avoid a "Shutdown" where government workers get paid vacations.

Congress decided to cut veteran pensions. This equates to a bout a 20% cut at the end of the 10 years!

This will "save" us 6Billion, but what it really is is theft! This is what they signed up for, dying and fighting for. And all of a sudden we are stealing that money, while going into more unsustainable wars!

It's atrocious!

Oh and don't forget that 355BIllion is now given to a nuclear plan for the next 10 years.. wtg congess!

We need to unite and kick these sobs out of the white house.
