The current administration wants to charge American Vets for providing health services which are the responsibility of the federal treasury.
Politicizing and charging for health care makes no sense for veterans or anyone else. Health care is a human right.
If we can “afford” to spend trillions killing millions for billionaires, munitions cartels and war-profiteers in avoidable wars for “profit,” then we can afford to shut down these unnecessary and unprovoked wars and invest in the health and well-being of everyday human beings.
Refusing to provide universal, single-payer, non-profit health care for everyday people is rank treason. Healthy people and jobs with justice are necessary foundations for protecting “Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.” Common sense.
The only way to effectively provide resources for veterans, children, women, men and seniors… is to shut down corporate aggression and invest in peace, people and planet.

“Peace has never come from dropping bombs. … The most valuable possession you can own is an open heart. The most powerful weapon you can be is an instrument of peace. … Most people are prisoners, thinking only about the future or living in the past. They are not in the present, and the present is where everything begins.”

We need a Green New Deal and we need to begin yesterday.
There are pluses and minuses on Capitol Hill these days. But on big-picture items, it’s clear that environmentalists and labor-rights activists are mostly up against the corporate wall — and the wall is not yielding. Donnie Trump, Barack Obama, George W. Bush, Bill Clinton, Harold W. Bush & Ronnie Reagan believed in avoidable wars for the corporate bottom line. This is not working…
We need a Green New Deal.
