While veterans’ groups organize to march on Washington memorials this Sunday to demand they be re-opened to “honor vets”, they continue to ignore the obvious problem (and it’s not closed memorials). The VA just announced that, due to the government shutdown, they are furloughing another 7,000 employees, and if the shutdown continues, may not be able to pay benefits on November 1. Vet groups ignore the real problem, continue to protest the President for the House Republican shutdown.
Call your congressman. Demand a vote in the House to reopen the government.
