Well...that’s nice. Most of her friends and pastors think of them as baby killers.

Counseling? That implies the number one issue is crazy troops. Once again, the Dems show how little they care.

They’ve figured out that they can buy anybody and everybody. That’s all this amounts to.

This ass kissing is so obvious. It’s an insult to everyone’s intelligence.

Actually, I don’t care where the support comes from, I am for it - for the Vets and their families!

That woman is dangerous and should not be allowed within 1,000 feet of a military person, just as a sexual preditor is not allowed near school children.

I suspect there will be entitlements to make re-enlisting less probable. They are not happy with the high quality of our warriors.

Yes, she should go back to having lavish lunches with Oprah, and having her mug shots photoshopped for womans magazine covers.

I hope so. Bambi is out there pretending to suck up to the middle class - but look at these “middle class benefits” and you’ll still find that they are government-oriented bennies that are really just part of the European socialist model.

So now he’s trying to suck up to the military, which he obviously hates unless he’s sending them to Haiti (where we don’t have a war going on, in case he hasn’t noticed).

We all support our brave soldiers and their families....

But, we.. (you and me) don’t have an agenda.

That’s the difference.

I am guessing he is looking to get the military on his side for what is coming.

“The largest sum, $1.9 billion, would be spent on counseling “

Counseling or “reeducation” ? Don’t a large number of military vote Republican ?

First comes the counseling, then you get refered to someone else who "can help"... then you are dignosed with PTSD or some other trumped up qualifier and go on the list. You have just lost your 2nd Amendment Right to Keep and Bare Arms because you can't pass the instant background check required to purchase firearms. Rahm hates to let a good list go to waste.
