Migrants don't vote at all, what a fucking joke of a line this is. They aren't fucking citizens, and only citizens get to vote. Not one of these refugees are going to be considered citizens, they are here on asylum visas.

Well if you stopped taking them in, maybe you would have money left over to actually take care of your vets.

Who are we kidding, it would just buy more tanks so we end up with more wounded vets

Do you know how many homeless vets we have? People who have given their best years in defense of the country, who now have problems adjusting to civilian life. Yet, we bring in more foreigners and make sure they have three hots and a cot, but not our own treasured citizens.

The left tries to take care of the homeless and what do they get? "Lazy ass moochers stealing mah taxes" The right cares fuckall for the vets except when it is politically convenient.

Every democratic president fucks veterans and service members.

Until they need some country invaded.

Oh, yeah... What a horror. A well-planned an executed invasion and conflict with how many allied casualties? That was the next best thing to being a dream campaign.

You're grasping.

I remember that story. I can't remember when I heard it first, but it was after I reached my first west coast squadron in the mid 70's.

The budget is set by congress. Which is Republican controlled.

That's not really inconsistent with their narrative. "We can't even take care of our vets so we won't take in refugees." Both parties are full of shit though.

Thanks for pointing out this glaring fact while the hive mind here just agrees to blame it all on the president. Blame the underfunded VA on both.

The President doesn't control funding...

[–] Iforgotmy_other_acct 4 points 2 points (+6|-4) ago 

Well, no. But he does present the budget before Congress. It is called the President's Budget. And he does sign it after Congress finishes hammering out what goes where.

No, actually Budget is submitted by Congress itself. This is a requirement of the constitution. Funding is 100% under Congressional control. As is the fact that there have been multiple bills presented to Congress for vets in the past six years, all of which have been rejected.

I'm pretty sure anything under discretionary funding falls under the domain of Imperial Decree - Er "Executive Order".

Did you read the quote? VA failed to informed congress of the short fall until the last monent. This one id the VA fault.

Unless something has changed, the president doesn't set funding levels, congress does.

Does anyone think that the GOP controlled congress will appropriate $4.5 billion for this? Obama does not get to determine how much money is spent for anything, that is totally under the control of Congress. I don't hold the Congress in high regard, especially this one but I don't think that they will approve that.
