The sitting Secretary of Veterans Affairs is merely the poster boy for all the jerks in congress and elsewhere who sit on their wallets and refuse to spend more money on the men and women who fight our wars when they come home. This despicable lack of interest is not new. It goes back to every war the United States of America has fought – including our own Revolutionary War. Americans are very good at waving the flag and banging the drum for our soldiers when the fighting starts, but not so good at providing the funding necessary to treat the troops when they come home. Medal of Honor recipient Jack Jacobs has the answer. Just provide our vets with excellent health insurance and allow them to access private sector health care. Eric comes off the Jerk list when he convinces congress to do that. Good luck Eric.
