Under the Obama Administration, we were living in a country that treated Illegal Aliens and Syrian refugees better than our veterans.
That was the America that Obama had created.
Under Obama, the Veterans Affairs (VA) was one of the most mismanaged government entities since 2008.
In fact, it had gotten so bad that Obama should have been brought before Congress to account for how poorly and disgustingly he treated our men and women in uniform.
And just when you thought Obama could not treat our vets any worse, he proves us all wrong.
American heroes cannot make doctor’s appointments, the cost of treatment is insanely high, and over 307,000 veterans died while waiting for care. As bad as the problems have gotten, no one has been held accountable.
The most egregious dereliction of his duties came when the VA appeared before Congress and argued that they were short $2,600,000,000 in their budget because that money was taken by Obama and placed in his Syrian refugee program.
The Secretary of Veteran Affairs, Robert McDonald, told Congress that if they are not provided an additional $2.6 billion, they will be forced to deny veterans the care they deserve.
Since 2008, the VA has been so underfunded, they are forced to deny vets everything ranging from doctor appointments to suicidal help, and now Obama is cutting their funding by $2.6 billion so that he can resettle Syrian refugees inside the United States.
Congress was forced to vote on and pass an emergency spending bill worth $3.5 billion.
Immediately following that, Obama’s administration sent an additional $4.5 billion to help rebuild Syrian mosques and homes. Additionally, Obama sent an astonishing $419 million more to Syria for “humanitarian aid.”
