It’s not that the government doesn’t want to pay for non-service connected medical problems ……. Veterans often are denied their claims, that their injuries are service-connected in the first place! That’s history, over the last few decades. Just talk to any veteran; they’ll all tell you!
What will happen to recruiting when young men discover this move? If they know others who’ve come out of the service, they’ll see right through it, but will they join? Remains to be seen. Historically, when the economy offered nothing in the way of jobs, . . . . the military has always been the job of last resort. The executive branch thinks it can get away with this – that the public’s cynacism has grown to the point th where they’re not watching. Still, this newest move seems to be the move of a hate-America-first mentality!
Again, compare the relationship the military with the former president and this president. He received a polite applause his last trip in front of the military and that was probably under threat – that’s how the military is . . . . respectful – there, respect doesn’t have to be earned, but will this be done by the legislature? Not a chance! Democrats won’t touch it – even the spineless, spend-it-all, Republicans.
Then again, there’s the circumvention of the checks and balances set up – the EXECUTIVE ORDERS! Mr. President, you’d better not do this …… the nation will turn on you quicker than a NASCAR out of control spin!
