Rachel Maddow demonstrates that privatizing VA care is a Republican priority and talks with Iraq War veteran, Congressman Patrick Murphy about why Democrats aren’t making more of an issue of the Republican war on popular government programs.
I don’t know why they aren’t making more of this – what the Obama Administration has done for veterans is one of the truly untold success stories of this administration. And most of those who wrap themselves in the flag are the first ones ready to cut ANYTHING that will help the average soldier. OH, they’ll fight to the death to defend defense CONTRACTORS, but fight for benefits for the actual SOLDIERS – no, they’ll cut that in a heartbeat.
