Think Progress » On Day of Iraq Speech, House Conservatives Gouge Vets
While watching the President tonight surrounded by soldiers, think about this article.
You might also think about the multiple billions that are "unaccounted for" in Iraq.
The administration knows (despite what they say in public) that the VA does need an additional billion dollars (or more), but they don't seem the least bit interested in the 8.8 billion that's just "dissapeared" in Iraq.
They can send [literally] truckloads of CASH (Millions/Billions? We don't know) to contractors in Iraq without making them account for it, but spend a billion to help the brave soldiers who have served their country? Sorry folks, no can do....
And to have our president cloak himself in the flag and surround himself with soldiers (visually decieving the American people), especially on the same day his party REFUSED to help Veterans who don't have the top-notch health care that Congress has (the majority of whom fought in WWII to save the world as we know it), [is] the height of hypocrisy !
I wish that I had the vocabulary and writing skills to thoroughly express how wrong that is, but this is the best I can do at the moment.
