Politics: Veterans must stop this travesty

The House and Senate veterans’ affairs committees have voted to impose an enrollment fee of at least $230 (on top of other fees) on some veterans now using the VA Health Care System. If you are a veteran, you need to contact your representatives to stop this travesty. Many veterans who have served their country honorably and need the VA Health Care System are going to be taken to the cleaners by the vary people we elected to protect veterans. Remember, those same congressional representatives have given themselves fabulous medical coverage for life, at our expense. What hypocrites our representatives have become. Call your congressional representatives today to stop this.
