Healthcare for Illegals, But Not for Vets

Source: The American Daily

So much for the promise. So much for priorities.

For Fred, myself and the other vets who are denied or offered limited medical care from our government, these priorities are difficult to accept while we watch millions of illegal aliens not only demanding, but receiving taxpayer funded free medical care at American emergency rooms and clinics.
D.A. King, president of the Dustin Inman Society, recounts how he and his friend Fred, both vets, have been denied the medical care promised them for their service to our country. Our government apparently doesn't have the desire or will to enforce our immigration laws, but one law they will enforce is the one that guarantees free medical care -- at taxpayer expense -- to anyone who shows up at a hospital emergency room.

We are taxpayers, Fred and I, so to us, it is a little more than ironic that as veterans, we are paying for health care for millions of people who crossed our borders illegally while we are not eligible for that same promised free care from our own Veterans Administration.
Ironic, indeed. Ironic, sad, and unacceptable.
