Some of the new government spending that the Republican’s complain about includes
- · $1.4 billion to fund the improvement in services to veterans at the VA
- · $4.6 billion to pay for more mental health professionals within the VA
- · Supported and signed the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act, which made more money available for veterans medical care
- · Ensured there was enough funding to provide active troops with better boy armor – Remember during the Bush/Cheney/Rumsfeld started wars when family members had to spend their own money to ensure their loved ones had proper body armor.
The First Lady and Dr. Biden have dedicated much of their activity to speaking out on behalf of the military families at home and ensuring the returning troops are treated as the they deserved to be treated; patriot’s and hero’s.
Not very democratic if you ask me.
