Obama Cuts $2.6 Billion From Veterans While Allocating $4.5 Billion To Muslim Syrian

The Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Robert McDonald, told Congress that if they do not receive $2.6 billion more in funds, they will have to deny veterans the care they deserve. The VA has been known to delay doctor appointments, especially in the past 7 years. Robert McDonald has only been Secretary of Veteran Affairs for the past year, yet he has already made some horrific things. “What you’re seeing is a sea of change in the way VA operates. Historically, we’ve managed to a budget instead of managing to requirements based on veterans’ needs.”

After discussing the possibility of closing some of the VA hospitals, Congress passed an emergency spending bill worth $3.5 billion. Josh Earnest, White House spokesman, said that the United States has committed to spend $4.5 billion in order to help rebuild Syria while also addressing the refugee camps scattered throughout Europe. $419 million will be designated for humanitarian aid assisting with Syrian refugees. The money is coming from the United States Agency for International Development which means that Congress will not get the chance to deny the funding.

While thousands of veterans are dying waiting for medical care and even more are living on the streets, the United States is sending over several billion dollars to help other countries.

As long as there is one homeless veteran or child in the country, we should t be taking care of people who are not our own citizens.

And they see it more important to have expensive facilities. The NW clinic in AZ is a fairly new remodeled place with polished concrete floors that cost $14 or more a sqft. not considering prevailing wages. That's only part of the high cost modern designs in this place. The VA is a joke.

Let's say that if they spent $14 a sqft. (On the cheap side) at let's say 20,000 sqft. - that's $280,000. This is only for polishing the concrete, not for the slab itself.

Thanks from Hobo Hilton and 11e40

I couldn't agree more. Unfortunately, the United States government has a long history of buying it's "friends" and providing aid for whatever crisis happens in the world rather than taking care of it's own citizens first.

just another example of our government gone awry. it's a shame when every bunch of welfare leeches get better care than those who have really earned it.

It is too bad that "those in power" aren't smart enough to realize that you can't buy friends-oh, wait, that's how they have friends. Just an old farts idea but maybe we shouldn't put anyone in office unless they have served a term in the military and then they don't get to make it a lifetime job! Two terms then out and they don't get their own insurance, health care, or social security. They have to do like the rest of us do. Maybe it is already too late to change this cluster ----.

I initially read this thread yesterday but didn't post because I probably would have been banned for language. Heres my two cents, Obama is a Muslim and wants to spread Islam. He cares nothing of Americans and what we want.

There is a brand new VA facility here in Fayetteville, NC that is pretty lavish. It's supposed to "relieve the pressure" from the VA hospital that is on the other side of town, but it still takes up to 3 months to get a regular appointment with your primary care physician...forget about a specialty referral/appointment.

No surprise here. National debt clock is spinning so fast under this prez that I'm surprised the bearings haven't seized up.

Am I the only vet that thinks he gets good care? I go to the Billings, MT facility, and think they take very good care of me. The people are fantastic, and I've had 3 primary care providers all of whom were great. I have no problem getting to see specialists, and the care from them is also top notch, and always with a smile. I am truly thankful for the VA. I can't believe I am alone!

Thanks from Jackson and bfj
