John Yarmuth On Veterans Health And Safety

April 30th, 2012 · 1 Comment

Here’s John Yarmuth discussing veterans’ health and safety last week:

“By freezing regulations arbitrarily, Congress would be unable to provide any new benefits for our veterans and service members – benefits they were promised and have more than earned,” Yarmuth said.

“Over the next five years, more than one million veterans will come home. I do not believe that anyone here can argue in good faith that just because the economy has yet to fully recover, members of the military and veterans are not entitled to the best and most current health care,” Yarmuth told the committee. “They deserve far better than this.”

    Sitting in the Marion Il. VA hospital while reading this, just a testimony to say thanks for the VA and all it has done for me lately.
    Great surgeons and the toughest ( in a nice way ) nurses, they’ve seen it all, literally .
