Discussion: House GOP Proposes Larger Budget For Benghazi Committee Than For Veterans

Discussion for article #224781

Is anyone really surprised about this? It’s old news that the GOP doesn’t care about Veterans…or active duty soldiers for that matter.

Now here’s a real scandal. Gowdy’s Goons hate the troops, and hate America.

Typical - more time, effort, and money to investigate a phony scandal than to investigate a real one.

$3.3M would pay for a lotta veterans’ healthcare.

That’s almost as much as the Koch brothers will drop in a small state Senate race

He doesn’t look good, does he? Like a grownup Boo Radley, deprived of sunlight for his entire life.

Two-thirds of the money to the party that received the fewer votes for Congress. Funky math.

How much is reserved for spraying those dignified silver streaks into hick-boy’s hair?

The only care the GOP has for military troops is sending them in to battle.

Silly me. I thought this committee was moot after the terrorist was captured and it turned out that it was the video after all. What can this accomplish other than to interfere with the criminal trial?

And now another perfect ad for the Democrats.

“Republicans care more about a made-up ‘scandal’ in Libya than the do about veterans’ health care. Say no to phony scandals and yes to helping wounded veterans. Vote Democrat in November.”

If older Draco Malfoy were a true fiacal conservative, he would keep his budget in check and give the surplus to the VA.

The grift is all-powerful. The VA mess is the real headliner and notice how little attention has been paid to it by the baggernut Murcia First Caucus. AND I will bet that W’s role in the whole VA thing is conveniently ignored. 2 wars, ten+ years, no real planning, years of budget cuts.

BUT OBAMA DID IT!

Sadly, yup. And he’s typical of a SC baggernut true believer.
