MEDICAL CARE FOR TROOPS
“Seeing the care that these troops get is comforting for me and Laura. We should and must provide the best care for anybody who is willing to put their life in harm's way.”
George W. Bush on June 24, 2003
The President made these comments on the same day that his Administration announced it was cutting off access to its health care system for approximately 164,000 veterans. The Administration also is pushing a cut of $1.5 billion in military housing/medical facility funding, despite the fact that UPI reports “hundreds of sick and wounded U.S. soldiers including many who served in the Iraq war are languishing in hot cement barracks here while they wait - sometimes for months - to see doctors.”
John Kerry has been sending 99 of these daily distortions by George W. Bush to his past contributors or email requesters. I tried to find the link for anyone to look at on his website, but couldn't find it. Can anyone help me out here? Anyone can comment to my post.
