I read the actual source days ago, I see right past your BS. I’m not some aged out tabloid fanatic or some never-has-been pretending along with their puppet masters during election season. I’m up to date on reality.
I’ll wait until you find the actual sources and actual quotes (you obviously still haven’t yet ), then I’ll get back to laughing at the idea that the left (especially the never-has-beens) isn’t lying through their rotten teeth about ever giving an actual ■■■■ about the Military.
It’d be better if you didn’t pretend to be outraged on my behalf. It looks really stupid.
I could play the same game, refusing to talk about actual issues until you show me a source.
But I recognize that you have run for cover behind a rhetorical dodge because you are unwilling to acknowledge that McCarthy and his R supports don’t care a bit about veterans or anyone else other than the the big money donor who support the party.
I hope the Kool-Aid is a flavor you like, because you appear to be consuming gallons of it.
If you can’t be arsed to educate yourself, neither can I.
Someone much more charitable than I will eventually be along to entertain your faux-outrage. I’ll be getting a tan today as I prep the pool, stoned off my ass without a care in the world. Pace yourself. lol
Anywho, us actual Veterans know what we’re doing. There’s no need to keep pretending like you’re doing anything other than.
I really don’t get the end game for McCarthy here. He makes his caucus vote for cuts for veterans. Every democrat is going to run this as a campaign ad. This is not going anywhere in the senate. And it still doesn’t get him out of the debt ceiling trap he caused himself.
"Veterans are blasting the debt ceiling legislation passed by the Republican-controlled House this week, warning it will cut key programs and services for the nation’s retired service members.
that would mean 81,000 jobs lost in the department’s health services, 30 million fewer outpatient visits for veterans and an increase of disability backlogs by 134,000 claims, among a range of other concerns.
Sarah Streyder, the executive director of the nonpartisan group Secure Families Initiative — which represents active-duty families but coordinates closely with the VA for client services — said there are already backlogs and waitlists at the VA that would be further exacerbated by the GOP budget proposal.
Streyder said whether the bill passes or not, the “harm is already being done” and the legislation is a “huge ding in morale” for the military, service members and veterans."
There is a proposed reduction in the increase of overall government spending. A couple of Democrats have honed in on veterans healthcare spending, even though the cuts are not specifically aimed that way.
Start by cutting out programs that pay people not to work without having to look for jobs. The Covid panic is over.
