Now we know why Congress posted the bill on a Friday…it is bad news day. Congress KNOWS they have a bad bill. That’s why they hid the details for so long. The real shocker is that they have stooped so low as to try this, at the behest of the ethically clueless folks running BWNVVA.
We encourage EVERYONE to contact their Congressional Representative and let them know:
HELL NO! THIS WON’T GO!
Perhaps, since the committee and subcommittee are looking for a budget offset, how about they dip into their own retirement funds to fund this bill. CONGRESS owes the Vets to fund this bill, not other Veterans!
Call your Congressman and tell them HELL NO THIS WON’T GO! FUND THE MONEY THROUGH APPROPRIATION. TAKE FROM THE VA UPPER MANAGEMENT SALARIES, ELIMINATE THEIR BONUSES [there’s an offset for you!].
Unethical, morally bankrupt cowards in that Veterans Affairs committee and the Subcommittee that colluded with the apparently morally bankrupt BWNVVA!
Get busy fellow Veterans and burn up those phone lines!
Your Veterans Service Organizations have backed away from this, but their silence is a dark mark in their column. They know better than this. They should be out front of this to stop this version of the bill. Shame on them: VFW, FRA, American Legion, especially the VVA! Where are they on this?!?!?!?
It is utterly disgraceful how so many organizations can let down Veterans they represent, Veterans that fund their efforts, only to be shunned when they are needed to step in big-time. There’s a lot of shame to go around on this one.
We don’t know about you, but we think this is a Congressional/BWNVVA thumbing of their collective noses at the rest of us Veterans considering May is Veteran Appreciation Month. Somehow the feeling of appreciation has left us.
”It is a stain on this nation's honor that the Department of Veterans Affairs has become a deadlier and more difficult adversary to the American veteran than any they have ever faced on a battlefield."-- VNVets
"The concept that Agent Orange, and its effects, stopped dead in its tracks at the shoreline is simply too illogical, and too ludicrous to accept. What does that say about the Obama Administration and his Department of Veterans Affairs?"--VNVets
"With malice toward none; with charity for all; with firmness in the right, as God gives us to see the right, let us strive on to finish the work we are in; to bind up the nation's wounds; to care for him who shall have borne the battle, and for his widow, and his orphan--to do all which may achieve and cherish a just and lasting peace, among ourselves, and with all nations." --President Abraham Lincoln
"It follows then as certain as that night succeeds the day, that without a decisive naval force we can do nothing definitive, and with it, everything honorable and glorious."--President George Washington
