I find JedMerrill's comment typical of "people who want to degrade Obama". It's is a lie that only 26% military support Obama and the rest of his stump speech for Rmoney is garbage. Behind closed doors with his donors, Romney made clear he'd write off half of America -- INCLUDING SERVICE MEMBERS AND VETERANS -- because, as he said "I'll never convince them they should take personal responsibility for their lives." But there's no greater personal responsibility than to wear your country's uniform and defend the rights we all enjoy as Americans.
President Obama secured the largest increase in VA investments in decades so our veterans get the care and benefits they earned, like treatment for PTSD and traumatic brain injury.
Just as our troops are returning home after a decade of war, Romney and Ryan might gut by up to 20 percent investments in the Department of Veterans Affairs -- and even suggest privatizing the veterans' health care. Again, they would short change our national security and the education, health care and employment benefits our veterans have earned and deserve just to cut taxes for the wealthiest Americans
