Shame — veterans denied health

Thursday, Feb. 27, 2014, GOP Senators denied wounded and disabled veterans better access to health. Why?


GOP senators wanted more sanctions against Iran. Yes, once again GOP senators decided to play party politics and better the president by blocking a Veteran's Health Care Bill, to try and gain better political position for the upcoming elections.


What does Iran truly have to do with better access to health care for all veterans, but mostly those wounded and disabled? The same GOP senators stand up to praise veterans and then turn around and play shameful, despicable, and mostly hypocritical politics on the backs of veterans in order to defeat the health care bill.


If you are a veteran, you should be outraged by the actions of the GOP senators. This was truly a sad day for America, a slap in the face for all veterans who have served this country. Those of us who served and sacrificed deserve better.
