VA Benefits… Here today, gone tomorrow… It happened before…

I remember reading a while back about how one of the presidents took the benefits away from veterans, because the country was in dire straits and the veterans were the first to take a hit…

Things haven’t changed since that happened, and if I remember correctly it was after WWI or II and it was because the country was in dire straits…

Now Trump has given the rich man its tax cut… Companies are shutting down and laying off workers… The coal industry is definitely on its last leg, thankfully, and veterans are going to be among the first to lose the benefits that our own government swore to protect…

Notice I said swore… not passed a bill or anything else, like they should for Mueller… but they swore never to hurt veterans again… yet, they already did and they are testing the waters….

4 weeks ago, my neurologist requested a MRI of my brain… I have yet to hear one word from any facility here on the island to schedule that MRI… hubby saw his doc 2 weeks ago, he is my dependent and the doc wanted a CT contrast… and he had that done yesterday… and guess what CHAMPVA will pay for that appointment… but this veteran cannot even get an appointment for the brain MRI and my left side is not getting any stronger!!!  Veterans die because of lack of care…and lack of real public support…

When the government wants to screw you, they test the waters…i.e. the veterans who’s pay got screwed up and it was about 365,000 of them… and no out cry from the public… gee.. that is the first steps they take, before things get changed… and frankly… with no revenue coming in… if you think veterans and seniors and disabled are going to have medicare, Medicaid, social security or veterans benefits… 

You are not living on the same planet I am on… I am selling my house as fast as I can, and securing a home for me and mine, that I own out right… 

Ya know, I hope it is paranoia talking and not what Moody’s or any other financial resource I follow thinks could or is happening… but, history repeats itself, because humans do not learn from the past… they are always looking to the future… when the here and now is all that counts…

I hope I am wrong… History wasn’t…. Eyes wide open… hoping for the best and expecting the worse… next 12 months should be very educational… it always comes back to, you can not fix stupid, stupid has to want to fix itself….
