Oh, I've got an idea. How about we take the bonuses from the AIG and banksters bunch and pay for the VA. That'd be more than enough. Obama's talking about doing this to save $540 million. How much have we paid for bonuses thus far???

This just makes me sick!!

"Obama Vows to Boost Veterans Care" --Friday, October 5, 2007




"As president, I won't stand for hundreds of thousands of veterans waiting for benefits," he told a crowd of about 300 people at a community college in northern Iowa.
...

Obama said it's not enough to make a speech on Veteran's Day or lay a wreath on Memorial Day.

"When a veteran is denied health care, we're all dishonored,"
he said. "When 400,000 veterans are stuck on a waiting list for claims, we need a new sense of urgency in this country."

He said too many veterans slip through the cracks, and he would institute a zero tolerance policy for veteran homelessness.

"There should be no homeless veterans," he said. "We'll stand with veterans in their hour of need just as they have stood up for us."



Liar.

'nough said.

Here, for all the people that agree with Obama, and or don't think Vets deserve free medical after they serve, I've got another angle for you.

The people who support Obama are left-wing liberal peaceniks that don't have any respect for the military or military men and women who fought to keep their freedom, as well as ours. They think that they can hand a flower to a terrorist and the terrorist will lay down his arms, and become a peaceful member of society.
They have nothing but disdain for our brave military personnel.

Well, the rest of us have nothing but disdain for garbage that think like that. The military is the last vestige of honor connected to the government of the United States. The rest of the government has been bought out by those that would destroy this country. I also have nothing but disdain for those government personnel who have put themselves, their banks, their stock brokers, and their MSM tools, in front of the welfare of the United States.

Obama will give free medical care to illegal aliens, but NOT our wounded veterans. I call that treason, and a reason to impeach him.

To your point:




Barack Obama, the senatorial candidate of 2004, might have a bone to pick with Barack Obama, the presidential candidate of 2008.

Videotapes of debates and speeches that were obtained by The Washington Times show that Mr. Obama took positions during his Senate campaign on nearly a half-dozen issues ranging from the Cuba embargo to health care for illegal aliens that conflict with statements that he has made during his run for the White House.

I am totally against socialized medicine. I am totally against the illegal aliens he proposes US, that would be you and me or the United states, which would be us paying for their medical care.

I think this is the EPITOME of obama, screw those who work, screw those who earn the benefits and give it to the worthless who don't do crap.

This disgusts me. I had hoped I was wrong about Obama, but, I have yet to see a single policy or thing he does that would make me change my mind.

These people put their lives on the line daily so we can sit in our homes happy and smug and safe. Then we want to make THEM pay for the privilege of it? Please. People, wake up and smell the coffee. The man is scary.

He is going to make Bush look like a brainchild

Anyone else thinking about creating a new capital and simply voiding out DC, bringing back the glory the US of A once had?

I nominate Ron Paul for president of the new capital.

It will take more than common sense. In order for a third party to have a chance, election, primary, and TV debate laws and rules have to be changed so that third parties have equl footing with the Tweedledee and Tweedledum parties. I can't see that happening in any peaceful manner.

Obama with this and the Democrats and Republicans still covering up the true health problems of the agent orange vets and the Gulf War l and ll vets.

Its looking more and more like its time for the US veterans to form a political party.

Some of us are working on it.

All we need is the money to go to all the veterans hospitals to recruit veterans to start it.

re-post from other thread.

This is one of the many reasons I did not vote for Obama.
The govt should be taking care of the military veterans any and every which way they can, its EVIL to not provide the veterans with such essentials that were created in the first place by the very same people who sent our boys to fight in their wars. I am disgusted in our president, he needs to get his Harvard head out of his Harvard ass and do something for our men and women who bleed for the very things that he preaches about. HONOR. Where is his Honor?

A veteran party would be very popular, despite any propaganda thrown at them, it's our brothers and sisters, sons and daughters that would be campaigning against the administration.

Has nothing to do with my views on Obama. I'm not really in favor of it either. But I read the story and I can't find any link to the soldiers having to pay for it themselves. Obama wants to collect the costs directly from their private companies. So basically they get treated by vet system and then the vet system sends a bill to the private insurer. I still don't see whereit says that a vet has to pay or that he has to have private insurance to be treated. That is why the title is misleading. It is a fight between the insurers and the Vet. administration. It is not between the Vet and the soldiers.

This thread right here shows one of the major things wrong with America. I just get so sickof it. You all show outrage but you are outraged about the wrong thing. Obama does not desire to take away anything from the American veteran. He is just trying to get the private insurance companies, which the soldier obviously paid into, to take on some of the costs. I personally don't even agree. The insurers shouldonly pick up costs of treatment sthat aren't due to service.

Quit turning things to fit your needs, If you argue against this it should be an argument against making insurance companies pay for veterans treatment. There is absolutely nothing in this proposal or article which says the vets will have to pay or that they won't recieve the promised care. You all created that angle.

Quit denying denying ignorance.

A moderators voice confirming the content of articles such as these these would go a long way towards stopping these false conversations.

I'm sorry that you disagree with most of us on this topic, but many of us are looking at the big picture.

It's your right to voice out, but your wrong to announce your standing as "correct" for everyone's situation.

Yes, that's right, here in America our business and banking criminals get trillion dollar bailouts while our vets (who the government already treat like crap) have to pay for their own treatment.

When the SHTF the PTB are going to want the military on their side so why make this move? It honestly doesn't make much sense, unless the PTB are trying to force a rebellion or something...

This move will definitely rile some people up, and rightfully so, its angering and quite puzzling, why would they do this

There is a reason why the majority of the Military voted Republican.

We either remember Clinton or heard from those who had served under him.

Now we have another Democrat President who is going to turn his back on us.

8 years until retirement.
