Bush Forced to Enhance Veteran Care?


Don’t Count On It
amp.jpgOnce again, believing that we are the most gullible people on the planet, Bush is trying to convince us that he is really, really concerned about the care our returning troops are receiving. Of course he just became that concerned in the FIFTH YEAR OF THE WAR.

A presidential commission is pushing for broad changes to veterans’ care, in the wake of the scandal over conditions at Walter Reed Army Medical Center.
President George W. Bush created the bi-partisan panel in March, citing a “moral obligation” to provide the best possible care to men and women in uniform.

I’d like to smack this little shit right upside the head. As a veteran, I am insulted by his cowardly avoidance and his “I’m rich so I don’t have to go” attitude towards Vietnam and now this born-again revelation that he has a moral obligation to provide care for the wounded and half blown apart vets who he lied to so they would fight his illegal war in the first place. He wouldn’t know a moral obligation if it bit him in his cowardly ass.

“We owe a wounded solider the very best care and the very best benefits and the very easiest to understand system,” Bush said.

What Bush would have said if he wasn’t a lying little shit is,

“The level of care our vets receive will depend upon how much money is left over now that I have slashed the VA budget. If there’s not enough left for good care or clean, un-infested hospitals, well, f**k ’em. In the meantime, I don’t want any photographs taken of the dead soldiers, or their caskets or those disgusting amputees that are coming back everyday. It’s hard for me to maintain support for the war when the American people see its real results.”
“And by the way, I want to reiterate what I said before. I will NOT approve that extra 1/2% pay raise that Congress wants for the troops. They’re good, but not that good.”

Sen. Patty Murray, D-Washington predicts the dismal future of this effort.

“I am concerned that this Dole-Shalala commission report will end up like all the other bipartisan commission reports that we have seen come before us in the last years. We hope that this is not a report that just gets dusty in the president’s office after a photo-op.”

Patty, I’m afraid the dust is already starting to settle.
