Fact Check: There are no jobs for the soldiers to come home to, so let's let the tax payer take care of them.

And don't misunderstand my statement. There are soldiers who definitely need help, but just like any other "assistance" program there are abusers. I have a nephew who never saw a day of battle but our tax dollars are paying for his 'disability'.

These soldiers now should have never been placed in harm's way to begin with. I appreciate that they did their job, but dammit, the decision to send them into a worthless war was not mine, yet I'm being forced to pick up the bill.

We will be paying for Iraq/Afghanistan for decades to come. It has helped destroy our economy and those who voted for it should be responsible for paying for it.
