Sally Satel on CSPAN 2 calling out veterans
She now claims that we are the problem with the VA. To many of us have filed claims. And that returning troops with PTSD should not be given 100 percent. It will hurt their life's WHAT! The Republicans have found their talking head against us. Time to let Congress know we will not take her bullshit anymore. Brothers and Sisters this is the same B who told Military Wifes to stop Bitching about deployments. She claims it hurts the men who are in Iraq.

1. Yup, that's right. It's those darn veterans that are the problem with the Veterans' Administration.
Veterans, I'm with you. Tomorrow morning Jeff Bingaman, Tom Udall, and Pete Domenici will hear from me (again!)

You were there for me, and for everyone I love. You put your lives and health and sanity on the line for my freedom and well-being.

I'm there for you.

Nothing less than the SAME, EXACT level of care that a Senator expects from their Federal health benefits will do for our veterans!

If we're not willing to pay the full costs of war, ALL of the costs, it's time to quit. Period.

angrily,
Bright

6. No, thank YOU. And all veterans! Here's what I got from the congresscritters...
...an assurance that Senator Domenici "supports veteran" but no specifics about how. Pressed for details, the phone answerer offered to send out a summary of Domenici's support of veterans. Se said she'd pass along my concerns about opposing any further cuts to veteran's benefits and larger allocations for the VA.

Senator Bingaman's answerer thanked me for my call, reeled off a list of supplemental appropriations for Veterans' health benefits that the Senator has supported, and assured me that the Senator would certainly oppose any attempts to reduce benefits for returning troops. On parity, he said that the Senator supported parity but that none of the bills entered so far would solve the problem. I asked if the Senator would support a bill to provide parity and he said that if the budget issues could be worked out, the Senator would probably support such a bill, but the House would have to take the lead. He offered to put me on a mailing list to receive updates on veterans' issues.

Rep. Udall's phone answerer said Rep. Udall opposes efforts to cut veterans benefits and has worked on the Committee on Veterans' Affairs to expand benefits, receiving a 100% rating from veterans' groups. Assured me that the Representative is aware of the challenges ahead regarding Iraq deployment returnees and is working to get them funding for care that will meet their "special needs." Recommended me to the Representatives' website for more information. Asked if I was a veteran, was interested to hear that I wasn't and thanked me for my support.

We have a big military presence here so it's not surprising that most of our congresscritters keep in touch with veterans' issues.

supportively,
Bright

2. Sally, with the American Enterprise Institute Neocon Stink Tank
Both Sally and the AEI are tools of the MIC. Let's hope most people realize that.

5. Some doctors work for veterans, some work for the V.A.
She was planted in the v a to do one thing damage.

She is probably proud of all the claims she denied.

American enterprise institute is like fox news, Neo-con bullshit..
