Not even returning veterans take priority over making sure the already wealthy don't have to pay one penny more in taxes

Deficit insanity rules in the Republican Party, even if it means veterans returning from the war that these very same Republicans have used as a cudgel with which to beat Democrats for nearly a decade are homelsss.

Watch Mitch McConnell block legislation that would help homeless veterans:

That people being hurt by this recession are actually considering handing the keys to Congress back to these dark-hearted, greedy, venal, heartless bastards is just mind-boggling.

Hello Jill,

My prediction:

Sometime in the future we will have a ex/military takeover as the veterans and active duty soldiers are getting royally shafted and to use the CIA term "blowback" will occur. Just like all of the other groups in the past too numerous to mention they were trained by the US government. I do not want it to happen but I see it occurring with few alternatives.

In the eyes of most Republicans, homeless veterans don't exist! Didn't Bill O'Reilly offer to extend a helping hand to any homeless veteran out there a few years ago? Maybe he's done with his work.
