Foreign Invaders Win Again
The Bush administration acknowledged yesterday that it prefers to provide healthcare to illegal foreign invaders of this Country, rather than provide healthcare to those men and women who served this Country in the United States Military.
That's right. According to recent news articles, the administration is short at least $1 billion for covering the healthcare needs for our Veterans this year, while it spends the same $1 billion to provide healthcare to illegal immigrants. Yup, we are spending that money to provide illegal immigrants with free healthcare and short changing our Veterans to do it.
But, if you think that this is bad, the reality is worse, much worse. It seems that the administration is touting legislature that would provide a $1.6 billion increase in VA healthcare spending. Sounds good? Well, reality is that $1 billion of the so-called 'increase' will come from cutting other VA medical accounts: $533 million from the medical administration account, $417 million from medical facilities and $9 million from medical and prosthetics research.
This is our tax dollars at work, and it really pisses me off.
