That's even as veteran you can get pension. Many the desert storm veterans were cheated by the system. intentionally, willfully. Imagine serving in Desert Storm then finding out after you get out your health is fading. You starting having strange medical problems with real physical problems that are hard to explain. Then you find out hundreds of thousands of veterans from the same time frame are sick. Then watch as the VA tells you that you can't have a jury trial for disability. That they are just doing their jobs and there is nothing you can do to get justice. Then watch as people the Bush family put in office decide your case for you. Just doing their job they tell you. Nazi guards were just doing their jobs to.

When are the people of this country going to learn that the politicians in Washington couldn't care less about the working people of this country. The contracts set by the Government aren't worth the paper they are written on. All we are to them is people who make money that they can confiscate for vote buying and I am talking both parties. The Democrats don't care about the people and make it known openly while the Republicans say they care but haven't the guts to prove it. Most of the political positions in this country need to be done away with and the remainder need to be limited to one term.
