Senator Bernie Sanders and Senator John Tester with the lines of the veterans affairs debate. Senator Bernie Sanders, “that if you can afford to send your soldiers to war, you can afford to take care of them when they come back”. And the one from Senator Tester “taking care of veterans is a cost of going to war”. Something that House Republicans or at least the Tea Party Caucus has either forgotten or simply doesn’t understand. That it apparently it was easy for them to run up the national credit card during the Iraq War. But guess what that bill has come due and its time to pay and they don’t seem to want to pay the bills.
