Happy Memorial Day!
On this Happy Memorial Day 2014, we pause from our bar-b-ques and ballgames and parades to remember one thing:
The Republicans love our veterans.
Just ask them.
Well, not all of our veterans.
Not the gay ones. Yuck.
But other than that one small exception, Republicans can't wait to tell you how much they love our veterans.
Of course, they don't love them enough to adequately fund the VA.
Because even though VA funding has gone up by 50% under Obama (little thanks to the party of "no") the number of veterans needing help has gone up over 100% since Simple W. started his wars.
And, surprise surprise, the last bill to increase VA funding was filibustered by--you guessed it--the Republicans.
Now, before you jump to any rash conclusions, this only proves that patriotism is one thing and raising taxes on the rich is another. Obviously, they are mutually exclusive.
Still, the Republicans love our veterans so much that they will happily make more of them at the drop of a hat.
What Republicans really mean when they say how much they love our veterans is this:
We will always find enough money to start wars, but never find enough money to care for the people who do the fighting.
Oh, and God Bless America!
