Shameful: Republicans Block Bill to Expand Healthcare and Education for Veterans

One of the biggest problems I have with Republicans is their blatant hypocrisy. They’ll portray themselves as the party of “small, fiscally conservative government” while advocating for laws which are the complete opposite. Their rallying cry of “we support our troops” is another that’s a clear misnomer of exactly what policies they support. Republicans frequently support sending our troops off to war and often oppose funding for programs which helps our troops when they’re not deployed to war. To say Republicans “support our troops” is a blatant slap to the face of every man and woman who has served our country. Hell, even their push to cut SNAP benefits impacted millions of families of those serving in our military.
