on a day when we honor the war dead, let us not forget Jeff Sessions

who would hurry some service people to qualify,
he is the one who said that the living US veterans felt they were 'entitled" to medical care after their service and we could not afford it, yet he is champing for a new war
GOP Senator Jeff Sessions thinks providing healthcare to veterans is an “entitlement” we cannot afford
But, for some Republicans, that support for our men and women in uniform ends the day they return home and are in need of healthcare services. That faux support was never more clear than yesterday when Alabama Republican Senator Jeff Sessions said we just can’t afford a bill to help out veterans dealing with the tragedy of unnecessarily long waiting periods to get treated at VA hospitals:

........

The Senate on Wednesday overwhelmingly passed a bipartisan measure aimed at easing healthcare delays for veterans by giving them more access to private care and allowing the Department of Veterans Affairs to open more clinics and hire more medical staff.
The 93-3 vote in the Democratic-led Senate followed unanimous passage on Tuesday in the Republican-controlled House of Representatives of a similar bill to address a crisis that has embarrassed the Obama administration and prompted Veterans Affairs Secretary Eric Shinseki to quit. […]

I feel strongly we’ve got to do the right thing for our veterans. But I don’t think we should create a blank check, an unlimited entitlement program, now.

I bet he is out giving speeches and shaking hands today and talking abut how he supports the military.

I finally understand what Republicans mean by small government.

they want to shrink government to it can climb up thru a vagina and set up home in a uterus.
And then set up armaments in that uterus and conduct its wars from there - or it is wars on there?
