GO TAMMY DUCKWORTH

What's The Dumbest Thing You Could Say To A Congresswoman Who Lost Her Legs In Battle? Um, THIS.

An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.

People that abuse disability and VA claims has always been a pet peeve of mine. A woman I worked with was married to a man that got SS Disability for a bad back. He spent every day at the corner bar playing pool for money. My husband HAD a bad back and worked every day, even days when I had to help him get dressed and into his truck to drive to work. He could not play pool or bowl anymore simply because with a bad back you have trouble bending. It pissed me off no end the way people abuse the system. Apparently Tammy feels the same way.
