Default Bush wants to cut veterans' benefits

Bush Wants to Slash Veterans' Benefits


http://www.uswa.org/uswa/program/content/998.php


Last year, while troops were at war, the president proposed slashing $1.5 billion from military family housing and tried to roll back recent modest increases in bonuses paid to soldiers serving in combat zones. The president also refused to extend the child tax credit to one million children living in military and veteran families.

And Congressional Quarterly reported on February 4th that Mr. Bush's own Secretary for Veterans Affairs told lawmakers on Capitol Hill that the President rejected a desperate request for $1.2 billion in funding needed for veterans' health care. Many lawmakers believe that the Mr. Bush's administration is now cutting programs like veterans' benefits because the massive tax cuts it gave to benefit the wealthiest Americans have created massive budget deficits.


In 2002, the co-pay went from $2 to $7." Even Rep. Christopher H. Smith, a New Jersey Republican, said the proposal raises questions about the impact on "near-poor" veterans whose incomes are just high enough to require that they pay the new premium. Meanwhile, the American Legion called it "utterly ridiculous."

Honestly this is why I did NOT vote for that ignorant son-of-a-bitch. I expected it. Then again isn't that always the way it goes for Vet's? We get screwed while they get fat.
