7. Falling Prey to Snake Oil Salesmen
Agent OrangeFalling Prey to Snake Oil Salesmen

by Ed Mattson

Today was not like every other day for many of us. For veterans having to deal with a proposed amendment to the Military Construction Bill I wrote about earlier, written by Senator (and doctor) Tom Colburn, and co-sponsored by Sen. John McCain, it was mucho hustle time.

My mailbox was overflowing with emails since about mid-Wednesday. The Senate was going to weight the validity of an amendment that Sen. Colburn wanted to attach to a bill that was intended to help reduce the federal deficit, by attaching it to the Military Construction Bill that was sure to pass. You see, thats the problem with the doggone Congress and the Legislators who just cant understand why the American voter is so angry with them.
