Country needs to get its priorities in order

Being a Vietnam era vet, I find it truly disgusting that we still send men and boys to war without the best equipment. Then when they come home, the ones who are truly needy have to fight for proper care. Now on top of that we are cutting the SNAP program, which will affect about 170,000 soldiers and their families, and cutting pensions to the brave who are willing to make it a career.

If the elected officials do not have the backbone to make the wealthiest in this country pay for this injustice, then we as a country better think long and hard what has happened to us.
