"Its not the veterans that have us in debt, its the rest of the freeloaders we are paying for. "

Well, of course it is not entirely the vets that have bankrupted the government. I didnít say or imply that. But this amendment is just one more example of pandering politicians adding to an already bloated, bankrupt government by playing on our sympathy for disabled Veterans and putting the burden on property tax payers who already are paying too much.

Non-combat service related disabilities are already compensated by the VA, and I feel that is sufficient. If you feel that is not enough, then please suggest where the federal government can cut spending on other programs and special interests groups to pay for higher VA compensation of our vets. Iím sure Congressman Cuelliar will be all ears.

But, if you want to honor those true heroes, the ones actually injured in combat, we must make sure that freeloaders don't take advantage of our local generosity.

"the VA doesnt give it out like candy."

You say the VA doesn't hand out disability ratings easily. I don't know, but I can't help but feel that many non-combat vets are abusing the system. The process is too complex, entirely too subjective, run by bureaucrats and guided by political correctness. I just donít trust it, and most Vets don't either. And I donít think we as property tax payers should be subjected to the decisions of yet another inept federal bureaucracy.
