I served in our military along with many men and women who became my friends. I have always believed that if this country can afford to send its men and women into war, that this country should be able to afford to care for them when they came home.
There are others that are not as severe, but are still the result of exposure to burn pits.
There was a bill put forth to increase the benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits, Agent Orange, and the issues faced by first responders who dealt with 9/11. The Republicans in the Senate overwhelmingly voted against that bill. The Democrats all voted in favor of the bill. So please, tell me, how the Republicans are the ones supporting veterans in this country?
FYI – Senator Inhofe voted in favor of passage… Senator Lankford votes AGAINST passage of the bill.
