Newsflash- As a disabled vet I can state without equivocation the VA disability system has BEEN broken for decades.

BOTH Dems and GOPasaurs are responsible for this, especially since they keep voting to send troops to war.

This is a disgrace.

FIX IT NOW!!!!!!!!

I hate to say it but boner may be right. Our veterans are being treated shabbily and it needs to stop NOW!! They were there for us and willing to defend the nation and it is only right that we are there for them especially when they need our assistance! Hopefully no idiots will try to make this a conservative vs liberal issue!

The military industrial complex isn't broken, they and congress simply don't need the veterans they have used up and tossed away like used paper towels.
