No one has had our backs like Bernie. No one. When you look at the candidates for President and Commander-in-Chief, he is the only one who has consistently stood up and said, “If you can’t afford to take care of Veterans, then don’t go to war.”


As chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans Affairs, he’s been our outspoken leader in the fight to improve what’s broken at the VA. In taking the time to meet us and our families and to hear our stories, there’s no question that Bernie genuinely appreciates the sacrifices we make. That’s why he fights so hard for us.


This Was said by Senator John McCain.


That’s when Bernie partnered with Sen. John McCain to get his bill passed into law. The bill, known as the Veterans CHOICE Act, greatly improved VA dental and healthcare by expanding access. It hired more doctors and nurses to see us, created more VA hospitals for more convenient appointments, and improved transparency and accountability in the VA. It expanded educational opportunities by preventing states from denying in-state college tuition to military members, and guaranteed those same benefits to surviving spouses. Bernie’s bill also created new measures to put veterans back to work.


But the Republicans Blocked it again.


But again the establishment Democrats do not care about the veterans and same with the Republicans none of the elected officials care about the most harshly treated people in this country and they deserved to be treated way better in fact the people need to push the senate and the house to pass bills to give veterans the utmost respect. They should have free access to Health Care and free Welfare benefits after they come back.

I am very much against the wars that have killed, maimed, disabled and traumatized so many of our volunteer soldiers. These wars, since WWII, have been fought for the enrichment of arms dealers and the top executives in the arms manufacturing industry, who give out BIG campaign contributions and $$lobby$$ continuously, in return for endless conflict.

 

At the end of WWII, our former military personnel were provided with all the tools they might need to start new lives as civilians. Since then, and especially since the Vietnam war, and, after that, the end of conscription and start of the all-volunteer army, we have been treating our veterans with increasing neglect.

 

It's understood, in the halls of congress, that these wars are to further enrich very wealthy war-profiteers, who then invest more in legislative and campaign bribes for further war. The soldiers who fight these wars are not in the profit-loop. So they are used and then tossed aside as useless residue. If it weren't for the GI benefit structure still functioning, albeit, now, on much tigher budgets, like the VA system of hospitals, these veterans would be entirely left to their own devices. Among the American populace, they are feeling the pinch of austerity, most of all.

 

In order to bring back sane and humane treatment for our veterans, and especially, the maimed and disabled, we need to get rid of government corruption that fosters the neglect and governmental abandonment of those that are callously deemed no longer of any use. We need to bring back all the benefits that GI's had, returning from the battlefields of WWII.
