Hey while you are at it. Send some money my way, I would love to get my feet fixed. I have screwed up tendons in my feet that over time are damaging the muscle and bones and it is going to require surgery to fix. Which one of you wants to pay for it for me?
I hate wearing glasses how about you cough up some money for lasicks surgery.
No? You dont want to pay for my surgeries? why should they get special treatment then? Why is it ok for tax payer money to go to them and not to everyone else?
I pay my taxes I am an american citizen. I was born and raised here. I have a job. Why shouldnt everybody get that same treatment?
It seems pretty elitist to give better treatment to some than to others....
No one gains more rights just for joining the military so why should they have access to free healthcare when no one else does?
I say give it to EVERYONE or NO ONE.
To those of you are are no doubt assuming I voted for Obama.... I DIDNT!So get that out of your head. I didnt vote for McCain either.....I did vote though.

This has been the case since the Reagan administration, and it was Bush 41 that started having veterans make co payments on their medications. the last 8 years have been terrible for veterans.
I can already see a change in the attitudes of V.A. staff members and patient and believe me, the changes are for the better.... I have been a disabled veteran for 40 of my 59 years of age, and I can say without any doubt that this policy has been in effect since the 1980s. The American Legion is a tool of the right wing ultra conservatives and has never represented any veterans that I know in winning a claim for benefits. This guy doesn't speak for veterans and the story is bogus.
