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?
