If they are going to open veterans benefits to changes, they damned well better make changes in their own benefits first.

Congressmen / women shouldn't be paid in the first place and damned certainly shouldn't get lifetime benefits for only serving one term in office.

I was receiving my health care from TriCare until my Service-Connected Disability rating was raised from 30% to 40% and I was told by the DOD that because I was now Medicare eligible that I am NO LONGER covered under TriCare.

So much for the Full Medical for life lie.

My name is Jim Hayden and I AM the next American President
