The government is truly corrupt; I know a quadriplegic man here illegally who can't leave because he's completely paralyzed. He can't get medicaid to pay for the therapy he needs to maybe have a chance at moving again. So the libs don't even care about the illegals, they just pay them lip service for votes

I think BOTH parties failed the vets... not just the GOP. The problem I see,... is many bills like this get derailed because they don't vote on an issue,... they tack all kinds of other shit on bills,.. that parties don't agree on,... so things like this don't get approved because of some tacked on crap. Both parties are notorious for this.

The difference is the Republicans do it because "the bill is too expensive", whereas the Democrats usually say it is not spending enough to help vets.

reply

General knowledge. here's a paragraph from the article at Politico:
"Republicans have charged the bill was too expensive and disputed the way it would be paid for with overseas contingency operations funds used to fund the war in Afghanistan. "
Another article:
"U.S. Senate Republicans blocked legislation on Thursday that would have expanded federal healthcare and education programs for veterans, saying the $24 billion bill would bust the budget."

Go do it, and post if you can find any time in the last 20 years where Democrats wanted to cut funding for veterans' healthcare or aid.
I've never heard of them doing that, pretty much ever. It's always the party that wants to gut government that does it.

Thank you all for your service and for being there to support others in the service. God knows our president treats 'em like sh*t. I hate it when somebody has more respect for a criminal over someone willing to die (or equally as bad if not worse, live maimed for life), or go through hell to protect dirt bag jerk-offs who let them die in waiting rooms. It's disgusting. So thank you all very much, I wish I was rich so I could give you all what you deserve.
reply
2 ups, 2 replies
Are you sure "our president treats 'em like sh*t"? Because in August of 2012 he actually signed an executive order improving mental health services for vets. Executive orders aside, it's supposed to be Congress' job to handle veterans' benefits and the budget. If the VA is not properly funded or run, that's on Congress unless Obama vetoed bills that better funded the VA (which is not the case) or didn't sponsor bills funding the VA enough, I don't see how Obama's the one "treat[ing veterans] like sh*t", especially when Senate Republicans blocked a bill aimed at expanding veterans' benefits. That said, I do believe we should put veterans before illegal immigrants. Don't worry, you don't have to be rich to help give veterans what they deserve. All you have to do is vote for a lawmaker who wants to help veterans. All you have to do is vote for a Congress who will do what is necessary to help veterans.

If he improved their healthcare so much, why is the VA the way it is? And how is it Obama can grant millions of people amnesty with a stroke of a pen, yet it is somehow congress' fault? Don't get me wrong, I'm as frustrated at congress as the next guy, but if Obama really wanted to do something he could have. he's shown that in the past.
reply
2 ups, 1 reply
Actually, he has been doing things. I know I mentioned the 2012 executive order, but more recently in 2014 he announced 19 more executive action that built on the VA's response to the 2012 one. These included reaching out to "a quarter million veterans" to get them appointments and training sooner, as well as a new VA recruiting campaign for medical professionals, improving access to mental health care among other things. But he can only do so much alone. You stated that he can grant millions amnesty, but even his executive orders on immigration are being challenged and will be ruled on by the Supreme Court. If the court is evenly split on those orders, the 5th circuit Court of Appeals ruling will stand (which deemed the orders unlawful),so really he can't grant amnesty with the stroke of a pen (unless he was signing a bill into law, which he isn't). He can sign executive orders, but without Congressional approval his powers are limited.

2014... ? Obama was in office in 2008? In 2010 he started sending $$ overseas to rebuild mosques.. $770M. . But nothing to vets until the scandal broke in 2014. Google it...

Obama acted only after public outcry. He blamed Bush for everything that happened while Bush was president... obama can take responsibility for anything that happened under his presidency too. . Right?

And ,their spouses and surviving spouses. I do appreciate champ VA, but it only pays 75% of most acceptable charges. I need a surgery and 25% would still be alot for me to pay. So, I have been putting it off. If I were on welfare, It would all be paid. :/ I still appreciate what I have. It is more than some others have. So, I am grateful.

It's not an argument, so much as a commentary. Liberals will often fight tooth and nail against any accountability measures that would prevent illegals from using social programs (including medicare), while merely shrugging at the dysfunction in the VA system. We have limited resources so we need to prioritise.

Sometimes we have to send troops abroad,.. its called FID missions. And our troop numbers have been slashed,... google it. We don't have the numbers to do borders only. The United States has 5,525 miles of border with Canada and 1,989 miles with Mexico. Our maritime border includes 95,000 miles of shoreline. Each year, more than 500 million people cross the borders into the United States, some 330 million of whom are non-citizens. We have a problem.

You are welcomed at any time to come to Phoenix I will show you how it works. I will take you to the VA and you can talk to the vets directly and ask how long they waited for their appointment. Then we can take a ride to ANY ER of your choice in town and you will see the never ending stream of Illegals getting care for the flu, stomach aches and everything else that would be done at a normal Dr.s office because they know the ER can't turn them away.

I won't even go to the ER here. When I broke my hand I chewed through my cigarette filter and set it myself. You have to wait 5-6 hours to see a doctor because the waiting room is overflowing with illegals with everything from a stomach ache to the flu. They know the ER can't turn them away. I stood beside my ex-wife on stretcher in a hallway along with the ambulance driver for 3 hours waiting for an exam room to open up. praying her 105 temp wasn't going to fry her brain. Everybody wh hasn't had their head in the sand also knows about the VA waiting/death lists the VA has here. If you think there is no problem with illegals, get your ass messes up in a border state, you'll soon learn.
