Obama Ignores U.S. Veterans Crisis but Steals Another $90 Million for Climate Change!

0

Working Americans are receiving less and less of their paychecks while being denied basic promised services that they have earned and paid into including Social Security.

Especially hit hard by the Obama Administration is services to wounded veterans who have served our country.  V.A. health facilities are woefully understaffed. In Phoenix, several veterans have died waiting to be seen by a doctor.

It takes four to six months to get an appointment with a primary care physician in the Martinez, California facility. The appointments are usually in a 20 minute time frame. Every appointment is up to an hour late before being seen.

The staff members in Martinez are very caring but cannot do what they should be able to do because of these staff cutbacks by Obama. He has cut back on everything except his families lavish vacations.

You will see below a series of heavily budgeted government spending programs that Donald Trump, Paul Ryanand the Republicans are proposing to cut, which does NOT include Social Security and the military. Here are the unnecessary programs that will be affected. Sit down as you read this list and see how much of our tax money Obama has squandered and how much we can save. Warning: Your head will spin.
