THEY ARE SO USED TO LIVING OUTSIDE IN HARSH CONDITIONS, DO THE VETERANS REALLY NEED A HOME?

I am exceptionally proud of her for wanting to do this, but the Liberal Democrats won't let it happen. The only thing the Libs hate more than a 'person in the Service,' is an 'ex-person in the Service.'

The Republicans make a big show of caring for our Service men and women, but once they are no longer active, the Repubs don't much care for them, either.

And enlisted folks?! Good luck. Dems really do NOT like 'the Help.'

Yes, they do. I know one who slept in their vehicle after being laid off and stayed there until they got enough money to get a place to stay. They can do it. Should they have to? This person had to grab a shower where you could buy a shower and they were working full-time but hadn't gotten paid.

Some of the ones who are chronically homeless could have PTSD or other mental health issues.
I can't think of anyone who wouldn't appreciate a hot/cold meal, a shower and clean clothes.

Every Human Being should have a home. Unfortunately that goes for you too, you piece of dung. Your probably living off America in some way. Maybe some of your family are here and sending you money they get from the taxpayers!

That is True, Vets have taken a kick in the butt since Vietnam and they deserve better. Unfortunately, some people are shocked, that when they try to contact her about a certain issue, she does not respond. Must not be the topic's she is interested in or some she cannot get involved in. Although she is really, really busy, she does have staff to cover her.

They've been sticking 8-10 homeless vets in a big house and charging them rent here in my neck of the woods. I think they're allowed to drink.

The same goes for the Dem's, unfortunately. Vets were waiting months to get an appointment with Doctors at the Vets Hospital and clinics, and some were dying before they could get in. Big controversy about it and noted in the Media, and that was when the Obama/Democrats were in the office. But lets face it. Does any Politician really care? They all say they do, but seem to be only interested in getting rich. Like owning stocks in Health Care and Pharmaceutical companies who would deny or limit services and drugs to customers of age, or Veterans who deserve better. Or, a Politician who owns stock in a specific company and has stock in their products that promotes war and the Politician will benefit from those products being sold and Lobby for them. Check History!

She is gearing up to run for President of the United States. She has no time for Average and low income Citizens who cannot fund her run, so their wasting time and effort trying to contact her about anything, other than a donation.

Amy, wants everyone getting the same flu shot, she calls it a universal flu shot, she must be insane. Babies or young Kids should not be forced to take the huge flu shot that adults do, and some adults should not be either, because some can safely take the lower dose and do just fine, where as some adults actually do get "Sick" from those large dose shots, and it would be unsafe for children. She may be a Politian, but she is living in lala land if she thinks that is a good idea. Why isn't she looking into senior healthcare discrimination instead? People have the Right to choose! She will actually help people die, if she passes a bill that gives no choice for citizens regarding those, or any shots. People have the right to choose what works for them and their family, Period. Minnesota Politicians seem to be going overboard! They should Leave it alone. You don't see her demanding all the immigrants from different cultures who live in Minnesota get the shots that are recommended for their kids and themselves. Some say it is against their religion or culture. So then our kids can get sick with diseases that have been gone for a very long time, and has now been brought back by immigrants.

She should be looking at the many prescription drugs that have and are being recalled and stop them from being sold. Like the Blood Pressure medications that were proven to cause cancer, and were recalled recently and then the statins that cause serious side affects for many people, yet the people are asked to try them over and over again, which is not only dangerous, but a waste of money for both the patient and their insurance company, Yet makes Money for the Pharma's who are affiliated with Doctors and Politicians. Kickbacks? There is a brand name drug that is not a statin but works for some people who cannot take statins, unfortunately the cost of it is exuberant and most insurance refuse to let their customers get it. And people should know that most of those generic meds. they want everyone to take are from overseas pharmaceutical companies, like India or Pakistan who are not that well monitored, which can be a dangerous in itself. Lastly, it is common sense to know that not all drugs work the same, regardless of what the Politicians and Pharma Bros. want you to think.
