Flashback: Republicans Block VA Benefits

Оценок: 1946 | Просмотров: 174300
Republicans in February blocked important legislation from Sen. Bernie Sanders to improve veterans' access to health care among other things. Only two Republicans, Sens. Dean Heller and Jerry Moran, voted for the veterans benefits bill, which was endorsed by every major veterans organization. Read more about the bill: http://www.sanders.senate.gov/veterans/

We don't have $21 billion dollars to give back to our veterans but we have $70 billion to add to the military budget which unfortunately some Democrats also supported when we already spend far more on the military than any other country in the world. Its really sad that not everyone is able to see just how full of shit these people are.

Really? I remember hearing about this and it's absolutely disgusting how Veterans are treated in the United States. Not just during recent years but going back to Vietnam. Adding to the National Debt? Yeah well maybe if the government spent money more wisely than maybe there would be money available to help those vets who put their lives on the line, and sacrificed for their country.
Tony Tune (11 месяцев назад)
We sure can increase the debt by giving the billionaires a whopping tax cut ! Now , there's a WORTHY cause ! I'm sure no disabled or sick veteran would want the funding if they knew some billionaire was forced to buy a yacht a wee bit smaller than they wanted. That just wouldn't do .

Grandstanding crap. Sanders relies on DAV for data. He needs to go to the VA and talk to veterans. VA has plenty of money they are just mismanaged. The Chief of Staff at the Houston VA is not even in the Hospital and he had refused to talk to patients. Think twice before sending your son or daughter to the military.... if they end up at the mercy of the VA they will suffer for the rest of their lives... if they don't commit suicide first... unable to deal with the VA and it's abuse and neglect.

Shut up Richard Burr! you're telling me our kids (me) can't foot the bill! I would be so privileged my tax money to go to helping the Veterans of this country! You say we can't foot the bill? What about the billions you give to corporate subsidies every year? What about the graveyard in Nevada of brand NEW tanks, planes, jets for the military? You're telling me we can't foot 21 billion dollars for veterans? But can afford 598 billion a year on our military???

It was blocked, because it cost to much money and Bernie didn't have a substantial plan to offset the money that would be spent. Kind of a No-brainier! Don't spend money you don't have, unless you have a plan to cover the amount you need to spend. In other words, Bernie wanted to just add more debt on top of the existing debt, with no feasible plan to recover any money spent...duh!
P Roh Dusah (2 года назад)
+Tippiebear hey nobrainer duh girl its obvious that you are one of those empty headed right wing followers with absolutely zero critical thinking skills. but question. how do you think they pay for wars? how do they pay for the military 365 days of a year? do you even know who military veterans are lol? when your right wing politicians feed you the bullshit about not being able to pay for veterans because "theres no money" ask them how are they getting paid, how are their families getting the same benefits they denied veterans. if you cant find billlions to pay for people that fought your shitty conflicts stop finding trillions to send them war.

Republicans don't care about veterans like me, never have. They say this bill is too expensive? It would've cost $21 billion over 10 years, which is roughly $2 billion/year. If that's too expensive, how can they afford to approve $11 billion/year on things like the F-35 program and new super carriers? Oh, that's right, because they get kickbacks from those deals.

Rollin Shultz (2 года назад)
I am a Republican and anti war. I also would vote against this Bill, because it depends on printing money out of thin air. However I would be glad to support a Bill to take 21 billion from the current Defense budget and give that to the vets, because that is already assigned money. We could probably pay for Vets care, just by cancelling all robotic weapons programs. Who needs a bunch of robots going around killing people for oil? Haven't we done enough damage to other nations for oil? But Bernie doesn't understand no matter what the cause or who it is for, the money MUST come from somewhere, it can't just be debt upon debt. Out country, our land, is collateral on our debts, and someday the Chinese who hold our debt may decide they want to be paid up front. They might just come and take what they want, that's called repossession. Does Bernie think about our country being repoed, no he can't see beyond the next dollar. Every time you see a Bill that adds new debt you think about that, because if the liberals ever manage to get gun control laws passed the Chinese WILL come for their collateral, wouldn't you if America can't pay its debts?

wow Bernie got wrecked. Why should volunteers who know exactly what they're getting into recieve "muh 40 years of compensation" when they were only in combat for like 4 or 8 or whatever amount of years. You don't give special treatment to anyone, ever, unless you want their support, and that's exactly what you're trying to do. Our military makes the biggest welfare queens.

Hussein Obama claims to care about military personnel and veterans, but his actions tell a different story. One must remember, Obama floated the idea of military personnel injured in the line of duty to use their private medical insurance to pay for treatment. The Obama Regime does not care and many Veterans are dying because of them. The sooner they are out of office, the better for America. What is Congress’s solution to the problems at the VA? Spend more money and build more clinics. They state, "…supplemental appropriation mainly for the opening of the 26 clinics." There is no need for more Government run clinics.  What should be done is for all of the VA Hospitals to be closed. Government needs to get out of the healthcare business, which includes Obamacare. The city of St. Louis used to have city owned and operated hospitals, until the powers that be realized it was not cost effective and got out of the business. The same should be done with the VA. The veteran’s military ID would serve as their medical ID.  Veterans’ medical needs should be taken care of by the doctor or medical facility of the Veteran's choosing, anywhere throughout the world, as a benefit for serving in the military and then the bill would be sent to Uncle Sam to pay. This would save taxpayer money by reducing overhead costs of maintaining buildings and cut administrative positions. Most importantly, the veterans’ medical needs would be taken care of.

They always have money for more wars, but can't seem to find the money for those who are wounded in body and mind by those wars. It is a disgrace.

That's how it goes. In the military, outside the military, retired, discharged, whatever, it doesn't matter. You're not a human being. You're a tool. You're someone who signs up to shed blood when ordered to and to make sacrifices at your own cost. Obviously, this is a terrible thing. We keep talking about honoring our soldiers, but when it comes to taking care of them, we're quiet. We'd rather just keep saying how proud we are then actually taking care of them. Bernie, you said it best: If we can't afford to take care of them when they come home, don't send them in the first place.

+Daniel Potrev As a member of the armed services, I can say that some members feel fairly entitled, but when you look at the whole picture, it makes more sense. Working in the military, especially if you have been deployed to a combat zone, puts the enlistee in a lot more stress than the typical American citizen. There is a reason why suicide rates within the veteran community is much higher than the average American citizen. My father (retired army) passed away last April in a VA hospital. It took the process well over a year to detect that he had an aggressive form of Pancreatic Cancer. They passed him off to civilian hospitals at first, where they were treating the symptoms individually, rather than looking for a cause. The doctors had no idea what it was until about 2 weeks before he passed away. And that was due to them just passing him around to where it was the cheapest. For retired veterans, sometimes the VA benefits of health care are their only option, and it has been proven to not be very effective.

Fraud, waste, and abuse in military spending accounts for billions of dollars yearly. This is a fact well known in military circles and the GAO. In 2001, they couldn't account for $2.3 Trillion with a 'T', in military spending. And yet, they can't find a way to limit this waste to make way for $20 billion to take care of Veterans who put their lives and families on the line for this country. The US, the greatest country in the world? There are plenty of 'lesser' countries that take much better care of their military personnel.
