At least the moochers still receive welfare checks.
We need to form a .org
WE will take care of our vets.
I have no knowledge of how to go about this. But, we need to pull together, find a way to support those vets whom the government kicks in the teeth.
The lesson the bureaucrats think they are imparting is to give them the money they demand or they will punish you. However, the real lesson they are imparting is to never rely on the gov’t for anything.
They are going to cut the few areas of government that shouldn’t be cut such as the military, and set the stage for people to demand they do whatever is necessary to help our veterans and troops. By doing this, they will get away with expanding government yet again.
While there are some areas of the military that can and should be cut, veterans benefits, combat readiness training, and routine ship maintenance should not be options.
Funny how liberals don’t care about spending but they suddenly care about spending. This is designed to smear Republicans leading up to the 2014 election so the Dems can take the House, which they’ll probably STEAL anyway.
our government is like the plant in Little Shop of Horrors. FEED ME! FEED ME!
The same thing happened at the DMV a while back when the government union workers weren't happy about something. They sat around doing cross word puzzles while an old lady stood and waited for almost an hour.
Government union workers are going to start torturing people because of this. They'll be having temper tantrums everywhere. This is a union thug thing.
If you run into a problem with a government union member, call a representative you think will do something about it. If you have only democrats politicians in your area, alert the media. Drudge may also help you if you have a story - like this one.
This has nothing to do with cuts. It has to do with the union.
We need to know how to help.
They are trying to push the military to breaking point to unionize it.
I smell 1775.
The communists really abhor our vets.
I guess because they’ve exterminated so many of their like-minded brethren thru the years. They fear them to no end.
They’ve definitely been showing their true colors here recently. Crap like this will eventually come back to haunt them.
At least a source. Not just a rumor or hearsay.
Hi, 2ndDivisionVet. I hope y’all are doing well.
I can’t believe that this is a “true” story. This seems just like something the “regime” would cook up and spread far and wide to further the fake outrage of these tiny “budget cuts.”
While I put NOTHING past the commies in the “Obama” administration, I am certain they will create unnecessary fake scenes like this, so they can pretend the “Republicans” are doing the hurting that they themselves are doing.
Don’t worry, we’re still sending billions to our enemies.
I doubt that this is accurate.
The VA’s budget is a seperate entity that is on a 2 year cycle. Their budget is not connected to the budget of the Department of Defense.
Welcome to socialized medicine, where budget cuts can kill.
If, however, this is true, it should be immediately referred to the State Board of Medical Examiners as well as filing a complaint with HCFA. The patient should also file a complaint at the hospital and ask for morbidity/mortality review committee to review the propriety of this decision to cancel.
That said, I feel like there is more to this than is being reported.
This doesn’t ring true, I understand the patient wanting to keep his name out of it but where was this? Seems more likely appointments would be canceled ahead of time if care cannot be provided. As far as I know Veteran’s Hospital medical personnel are not subject to furlough, and most VA related things are exempt...though military hospitals and personnel (civilian doctors, nurses, etc.) are subject to sequestration/furloughs.
Sketchy info. I doubt this happened.
