Today the Senate is expected to take up legislation by Sen. Bernie Sanders, chairman of the Senate Committee on Veterans' Affairs. The bill would improve VA health care and dental care, expand educational opportunities
The right wing "outrage" over VA health care keeps the Faux News machine cranking, while Republicans block veterans' benefits to achieve other (more important?) political aims. http://thehill.com/blogs/floor-action/senate/199480-gop-blocks-veterans-bill
“Good Morning, Operation Gratitude: I would like to thank you so much for the care package that I received from everyone! It really meant a lot to me to receive such a great package! I was totally speechless -- and to read the letters from the kiddos was AMAZING! Give everyone my big THANK YOU!!! Again, I really do appreciate the thought, love, and care that was put into making that for me. Again thank you so much! V/R Sgt. S.J.G.”
The republicans fought just as hard to block social security when it was first initiated. They also hated the CCC, Food assistance programs, Medicare, Medicaid...well just about anything that helped others; created a great divide. There is a difference in our parties. A very large one, this proves. Today, I am a proud democrat.
