1,000 Veterans denied ability to file for Veterans Benefits. Yeah, Support our Troops alright.
What happened to all the flag waving, don't criticize our president, don't send mixed messages to our troops, support our troops GARBAGE spewed by the Republicans in the past decade? It appears they never meant it as you see how disrespectful they are towards not only the President, but the men and women who went and fought that horrible war of lies started by Bush and Cheney and now the CONS don't want to pay for it either. Tea Party losers, your days of election wins were over in the last cycle and will diminish greatly because of your anti-American activities. I can't happen soon enough.
