Every soldier who has served their country deserves equal treatment/benifits. Equal ...no better way to say it.

Equal benifits across the board for the families of those who have served our nation and it's population.

It's hard to think dodo Republicans can come up with a good excuse for not giving equal benefits....but then they are full of excuses. Hope the judge flattens them.

If they had no excuse ready on Wednesday how will they have one by Thursday. But no doubt they'll try.

I don't think they know how to do anything BUT obstruct. They will show up with something stupid.

Why would Behner & Co. suddenly reverse course and be reasonable fo a change? They have nothing to lose: their reputations can't get any worse. They're the laughingstock of the entire Solar System.

The whole VA system is a mess. We have a life obligation to those who have served in the military. Nothing else really needs to said. Equal treatment and full benefits.

Yes, excuses, irrational rationalizations...these folks must have insomnia, stay up all night thinking of inane shit to spout when the sun come up.
It's almost like I can't wait to see what is next, used to have laughing sessions, in the '70's, reading the paper with a work friend, Beverly, about the crap that came out of Nixon's mouth and administration!

What is morally and ethically right does not enter into the GOP's thinking.

The only decision to make is how, with all the slippery ways they know, how do they get away with it?
I think their hate made the decision, Now what is the safest way to bamboozle the public?

Read and noted - and waiting to see what ploy they will try this time to not comply...
