Okay. I am going to just lay my cards on the table.

Veterans, especially disabled veterans, have been underfunded by Congress in their needs for generations. Lets fix it now by using 25% of the money that Congress will set aside for our Western Asian wars.
Lets use the money that the military industrial complex lobbied for use on the unbelievably unnecessary and illegally initiated war in Iraq and the pointless, aimless and no-end-in-sight Viet Namization of the War in Afghanistan.
We don’t need anymore wars that have nothing to do with national defense. We have more than filled the quota for broken and gutted veterans since 1898 with working class American kids. Lets end that part of our history and lets do it now. Veterans should take the lead here.
Lets take 25% of whatever money Congress is willing to give for the Western Asian wars and take care of veterans with it. So what do you think? Am I being unreasonable? Call your Congressman if you agree.
