Today, Michelle Obama gave the keynote address at the Unite for Veterans Summit in L.A..
Veteran homelessness is indeed a serious issue that needs to be addressed. But you know what? So are sick and dying veterans languishing in the VA system. And FLOTUS made no mention of them:
What about the idea that our veterans are spending months, or even years, waiting to be seen by a VA physician? Maybe, like her husband, she needs to find out about that stuff from the news. And with her busy social calendar, she just hasn’t had the time.
And under this president, we’ve also watched corruption plague the Department of Veterans Affairs.
Our vets deserve a hell of a lot better than what this president has shown them.
