VETERANS: Get ready to receive the "big screw" courtesy of Pres. Trump

    Several articles reveal that Trump intends as part of his budget to cut Vet benefits to include disabled vets offering only a "bill of goods" in exchange.

    I can see an ultimate attempt to dismantle the VA as part of his nefarious scheme.

    Here is one article from the New York Post and a following article from Time Magazine, Sept, 2016. While this is dated, it is still spot on in regards to why Vets are fools to have trusted this disingenuous clown.

          The difference in what veterans want and what liberals say veterans want ; are many , 

          Cleaning up the VA.
          Cutting overstuffed VA entitlements of organized government labor forces putting  their own  importance OVER effective VA care ,,  tenured  service no matter what the employment offenses   ,  corruption in internal budgets and economics ,   major NEW investigations into missing prescribed and  highly addictive opioids - over one hundred  cases - because of doctors , nurses , employees stealing ,  continually politically appointed  and failed leadership ,on and on ..............

          Trump inspired cleaning up the corruption of an errant system is  not the same as hurting veterans . It will actually help them.     But hey , continue on with the bias.Credence .

    The White House
    Office of the Press Secretary
    For Immediate Release May 31, 2017
    Press Briefing by Secretary of Veterans Affairs David Shulkin

    Many assessments have been made to help fix the broken VA system.  The most important is the issue of 20 Veterans per day committing suicide, who are largely people who have received a dis-honorable discharge.   They will be getting the mental health life saving services they need as soon as possible. 

    Fraud, waste and abuse ... lots of problems and incompetence.

    Finally, something will get done to help the Veterans with the VA system!
    They have been getting screwed far too long by the Swamp Creatures!
