As pointed out by the following article, the number of soldiers in Afghanistan suffering crippling injuries is rising precipitously:

What are we doing to help these wounded heroes? The VA currently has a backlog of 800,000 claims, meaning that many of these men and women go months if not years without receiving compensation! Meanwhile, the VA budget has swelled to over $120 billion. Where is this money going?

Our soldiers fight to defend the many freedoms we enjoy. Should we not provide them with adequate care upon their return from the battlefield?

Obamacare is not some socialist marxist leftist plot...

Obamacare is not some crazy communist, left-wing, socialist plot. It’s a Republican plot.

Back in 1971, then President Richard Nixon was extremely concerned that he would have to face then Senator Ted Kennedy in the 1972 presidential election. At that time, Senator Kennedy was pushing a proposal for a national single-payer healthcare plan that would extend coverage to all Americans.
