The Bush Administration Is Betraying Veterans
And the worst is yet to come:
Speaking on the Veterans Day weekend, the former U.S. military commander in the Middle East said "President Bush has consistently refused to provide enough" money for veterans' health care.
"Earlier this year, his administration admitted that they were $1 billion short in funding for critical health care services," he said. "They also repeatedly tried to increase the cost of prescription drugs and health care services for veterans nationwide."
Note who the retired general points out as being supportive of the veteran's needs:
Hoar also said, "Thousands of veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan will require mental health care, yet the Bush administration has not taken action to deal with this emerging problem."
In contrast, Democrats are working to improve the current health care system and strengthen mental health care services, he said.
