2. Actually They Want To Profitize The Entire VA System This Cut Is Just The First Step.

 

Ultimately they want to voucherize vets care as well. Let them compete on the free market. The GOP view veterans the same way they view welfare clients. Veterans are just a drain on the budget and are slackers. They won't say that publicly, but they imply it all the time.

The Ryan budget would sacrifice vets care for weapons development and defense. Even though R$R would increase the defense budget by trillions, little would go for wounded warriors. And if you look at what is going on now we have hundreds of thousands of vets who have or will have PTSD which is pretty much incurable right now. It is a chronic condition that will last a life time.

Romney recently said he was "too important' to serve in Vietnam. And he also supported the Vietnam war and was in a pro war demonstration. Yet he did not serve. Sadly the VFW and Legion will probably endorse a person who has only been a leech. And he is a patriot?

What is really alarming is that Bush and Rumsfeld wanted to profitize MASH units in the war zone by letting contractor control the casualty units. That is where they triage soldiers to decide who to save. Doing it for a profit would be scandalous.
