It may be to subtle for you but the point was that nothing was said when Bush slighted the troops but now you are all up in arms. I think it is called hypocrisy.

I will ask you again, what benefits? And while you are at it how is he cutting these notional benefits? He really doesn't control that.

Another thing, is Obama ignorant, stupid and hate filled or is he a fiendishly clever Communist plant gutting our military and undermining our economy? I don't see how you folks can have it both ways.

Nothing was said? action was taken for example when there problems were at Walter Reed, Walter Reed Hospital was repaired and return to top working conditions,

VA Services for PTSS.. were increased once reports of a large number of cases during the Bush Administration.. he increases staffing and expanded benefit packages for mental health treatment.


But you forget that Bush Fixed the problems in the system as they became aware of needs..

Not expand them.

Right now there is up to a 2 year waiting period for some vets for PTSS and even Physical wound treatment.

And yet his legacy remains. We still haven't recovered from the damage he did. We may never truly recover because of his abridgements of civil rights to fight the War on Terror. And that doesn't even address the War on the Middle Class/Poor/Women and the perversities associated therewith.

These are all Bush scandals. That is all they are...not successes or fixing problems. I STILL want top know what benefits are being cut. You seem adamant that they are being cut...list some.

The VA has always been under funded and under staffed and plagued with low priority treatment by every administration. We have never been prepared to "support the troops" after the parades and today is no different. Obama is no better nor worse than Bush...neither give a damn about the "troops".

They were problems, that were fixed, at the time they were scandals,, '

Just as what is happening now is a scandal

Difference in Bush and Obama, Bush Addressed the scandals with action, Obama addresses them with another speech.



I work in a medical facility that has an Adult Treatment Facility that worked with PTSS patients. I see the difference from 2005 and Today.

Patients never had more than a 60 day wait a few years ago, are now seeing up 32 months of waiting for approval.

You know, it has been a source of concern that these VA related problems persist (even after Bush fixed them). I asked myself why the increase? Then I remember that we have been at war for 12+ years and our troops are serving multiple combat tours. Also, we are fighting where we cannot even pretend we are the we are the good guys. And yet, there has been no attendant increase in facilities or resources to address the rise in PTSD.

At least when Nixon took the War on Drugs to the user he authorized a huge increase in prison funding.

The answer would appear to be not much.



Case in point: it is a violation of the UCMJ (that is the law for the military) for a member of the military to publicly criticize those above him. The UCMJ makes no allowance for taking internal disagreements (even as to facts) to the court of public opinion or even publicly disagreeing with anyone further up your chain of command. That is what Gen. Ham did. That is why he is now retired.

You know that is what happened to all these dismissed senior officers, right? They weren't dismissed from the service just their assignments. They would all have been in service long enough to retire. That would be what they did, retire. Used to be a general officer got a one grade jump on retirement. Maybe they didn't get that. I don't know if it is still done. But I haven't heard of any of them being reduced in rank or subject to any other sanctions.

You have absolutely no evidence to support this statement. I suspect that is because it is just your misguided and under-informed opinion on a subject about which you know absolutely nothing. It is vile to tell lies like this. You are evil.
You would justify Obama doing anything he wants. ANYTHING. The evidence is there....and just recently a book just came out about Obama from one of his own secret service. I bet it is packed full of juicy tidbits.

I posted an article with merit...you just don't want to see it. If there was no truth..it would not have been reported. Obama is a one man show....he will bulldoze anyone in his path. And to hide what he did in Bengazi....he will do just about anything.

Obama.. steal from Medicare, and punish the private soldier. Way to go.. add 6.2 trillion to the deficit with a failing Obamacare.


Report: Pentagon to consider closing military commissaries on U.S. bases - National Policy & Issues | Examiner.com
Actually this is coming from the GOP. Senator Coburn R-OK published a paper entitled The Dept. of Everything. In it, he outlines the waste in the Pentagon, from almost 300 grocery stores, to breweries, to daycare, to alternative energy.

The military is bloated and inefficient. Our navy is 1/10th the size it was in ww2, but we have more admirals now than we had in ww2. In fact we have almost one admiral for every ship.

All the branches testified earlier that we have 25% more base capacity than we have a need for.
