VCS: Ryan Budget Makes Zero Mention of Veterans. Eleven billion in cuts.

The following is from Veterans for Common Sense (VCS)


Ryan Budget Makes Zero Mention of Veterans.  Eleven billion in cuts.

    Recent gains in veteran's health care and benefits are under attack. In the Rep. Paul Ryan  2013  budget, described by Mitt Romney as "marvelous", the word veteran never appears in ninety-eight pages. Zero mention of veterans but eleven billion in cuts from veteran's programs . This says clearly that veterans are NOT a priority. Veterans are essentially being told, thanks for your service,now get lost. This is absolutely unacceptable.
           Romney has also chosen James Nicholson, disgraced Bush SEC VA as his  veteran's advisor. Read more in this article we are quoted in http://www.thedailybeast.com/articles/2012/07/07/will-veterans-lose-if-mitt-romney-wins.html 
          That is not the worst of it, Romney and Ryan also want to turn veteran's health care into a voucher system, along with Social Security. Costing veterans more money out of pocket. At VCS  we pledge to stand up to these proposals and continue working with veteran's champions on Captiol Hill, to  protect and improve upon our hard won veteran's rights and benefits. Only 1% have borne the burden of a decade of conflicts and we only ask for a square deal after wards. Please  donate today. Thank you for your support.
