American Legion 'disappointed' with Obama | Spero News: "According to a news released,
'It became apparent during our discussion today that the President intends to move forward with this unreasonable plan,' said Commander David K. Rehbein of The American Legion. 'He says he is looking to generate $540-million by this method, but refused to hear arguments about the moral and government-avowed obligations that would be compromised by it.'
The Commander, clearly angered as he emerged from the session said, 'This reimbursement plan would be inconsistent with the mandate ' to care for him who shall have borne the battle' given that the United States government sent members of the armed forces into harm's way, and not private insurance companies."
So's here the way I see it. Until the American people and the American Government are forced to pay for all the consequences and costs for their idiotic wars, they will continue to engage in them. That is why I am totally behind the Vets on complete and comprehensive health care and why I am not for immediate withdrawal from Iraq. We fucked up that country, we need to fix it before we bail.
