Determined to promote their socialist agenda, Democrats Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez have made what they say is “an absolute promise, without a doubt, we’ll get this done.” They have sworn to eliminate veteran care, citing in particular medical care and homelessness advocacy.
Ocasio-Cortez is particularly outspoken on this budgetary issue and had much to say:
“They served our country? How? By fighting illegal wars against women and children who never harmed a soul? Bull. That’s not serving the country. That’s serving their 1% masters.
That 1% get filthy rich every time we go to war against made-up enemies. If anyone should be paying for these veteran entitlements, it’s them, not the American taxpayer.
But whatever. The soldiers were just doing a job, like a ditch digger or a bartender. What makes them so special that they should receive all this extra post-work care but the rest of us should not? Every job has significance. If we can’t all get all that medical care and whatever other stuff, then nobody should. It’s that simple. Fair is fair. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander. The rain in Spain falls mainly on the plain.”
Minnesotan Representative Omar was far more blunt. Shrugging her shoulders, she said:
“They are not special. They’re Americans like the rest of us. They got a government handout already in the form of a job. Good for them. But after they are discharged it is time to get off the government teat. Bootstraps, right?
They served their purpose. They were paid for their work. Now that’s it. Move on. Be responsible adults.”
There is no way President Trump would let this garbage go through. But we must always remain vigilant, for Democrats will never stop trying to take away what is right and good and earned.
