Veterans are not a guaranteed block of voters like Gays, Hispanics or Blacks. While I do not mean to stereotype and realize that these minorities have members that vote their conscience, they are, as a voting block, somewhat predictable. Veterans are not and as such, will always suffer. The Dems get a bone to throw back to the crack whores that vote dead or alive and the Rep's get to say they agreed to cut . mil spending without cutting budget on the badly needed F 567 capable of shooting down the sun (Read, the cats that fund their re-election). I pay $1100.00 a month for tricare so you will not hear me boohooing about it.
From what I have read on the Internet, veterans serve an ungrateful nation. This is just another example.
