I didn't get a flu shot this year, for the first time in nearly 30 years. The VA refused me, saying I'm no longer qualified under their revised rules. Odd, because I've qualified every year since 1994, and I'm older now and have more medical issues than ever before.
I presume this is the result of previous underfunding by the Bush Administration, and maybe by next year the VA will have money again under Obama, who has put more funds into the VA in his new budget, which of course the Republicans are opposing.
Odd that Repubs wrap themselves up in the flag and patriotism, but in reality consistently underfund soldiers & veterans. They say one thing but do another, typical Republican deceit & hypocrisy. Meanwhile, soldiers & vets die, as we all saw last year with medical scandals at Walter Reed and the VA.
But hey, Repubs wave the flag and tell us how much they love the troops, so it must be true, right?
