An IRS contractor named Braulio Castillo hurt his foot playing football in military prep school. He never served in the actual military. Then one day, decades later, he used it to get preferred treatment in government contracts. Rep. Tammy Duckworth (D-Ill.), who lost both her legs and still could lose her arm from combat injuries, felt that this might just be a touch inappropriate. It gets amazing around 4:30.

First off, Mr. Castillo was indeed receiving aid at a level he didn't deserve. although he had the right to some. Conversely, Ms, Duckworth should have received far more than she did! It's no wonder she sounded irritated...

I'd like to have seen his face when this was being said to him. I also agree with Jeremy, Ms Duckworth should receive more compensation than she did. Only 20% for her arm that may still need to be removed.

Tammy did a wonderful dress down on this sleezoid. Thanks Beverly for airing this here on a site that has become so radicalized. The lesson is don't muck around with a vet and yes Sheryl, she deserves much more but welcome to the wonderful world of retired vets! Reality sucks doesn't it.

That video brought tears to my eyes. through laughing so much.
My heart felt sympathy goes to Tammy Duckworth for the pain and suffering she has endured through serving her country. She is a truely courageous lady.
She also as my congratulations for tearing the piece of cowardly excrement Braulio Castillo to shreds.
My personal thought is that Castillo should be taken out and shot, because he is a traitor to the nation and by his fraudulent actions, he is darkening the name and character of all the brave men and women who have ever served and in many cases given their health and even their lives for their country.

Could someone explain to me, why ANYONE, would have to enlist in our armed services.
Protecting our country, comes in second, at best, after protecting the wealthy, who benefit the most from armed conflict.
When we see and hear about our soldiers who are not treated with the greatest respect upon returning home, it makes me sick at my stomach.
