I've said it before and I'll say it again.........I don't think we are doing near enough to take care of our veterans.

If money spent advertising in NASCAR (or any other similar sports) is taking away from those who have served, then it should be cut.

What really burns me is talk like this.

Massive Veterans Cuts Proposed (click here)

Quote:
GOP Congressman Calls for Massive Cuts in Veterans Funding

Ryan calls for $32 billion in cuts.

House Budget Chairman Paul D. Ryan released a fiscal 2011 budget allocation Thursday that would cap spending at $1.055 trillion and slice $32 billion from current government spending levels this year. The eagerly awaited numbers are sure to touch off a battle between House Republicans and Democrats in both chambers over where, how quickly and how much to cut spending. The allocation provides House GOP appropriators with the final target they need to write a stopgap funding measure to pay for the last seven months of fiscal 2011 after a continuing resolution (PL 111-322) expires March 4.

The allocation by Ryan, R-Wis., represents a $58 billion reduction below President Obama’s proposed fiscal 2011 budget request of $478 billion for non-security programs. As defined by GOP leaders, non-security spending includes all discretionary spending not for defense, homeland security, veterans and military construction. The reduced budget allocation follows a House GOP campaign promise to scale back non-security spending to the levels in place in fiscal 2008 — $378 billion — before Congress plowed hundreds of billions of dollars into a bailout of the financial services sector and into stimulating the economy following the financial collapse.

As I pointed out a while back, at least Obama actually increased funding for veterans.

Quote:
While watchdogs caution there’s still a long list of problems for veterans, all sides agree the President Obama has made big strides on promises he made in 2008 when competing for military votes against Republican nominee and Vietnam veteran Sen. John McCain - to fully fund the Veterans Administration, expand access to care in rural areas and improve treatment for mental health conditions, such as post-traumatic stress disorder.

Mr. Obama’s proposed VA budget for fiscal 2011 asks for $125 billion - a 10 percent jump from what Congress enacted for 2010, which was itself more than 16 percent more than 2009. The discretionary portion of next year’s budget request - the part the administration and Congress have the most direct control over - is up nearly 20 percent since 2009, to total $60.3 billion.

Never have so many politicians, screwed so many Americans...just to make one black person lose his job.

Me too. I read a lot of Gandy's posts and disagree, but I think we can all come together when it comes to our veterans.

Thank you to all that have served.
