Start by cutting out all Agent Orange welfare payments. This is a boondoggle of the worst kind that is costing the taxpayers BILLIONS of dollars.

The people of America are so naive. Just who do you think is behind all the wailing and gnashing of teeth lately? Why the veterans and their so-called "service organizations" of course. How else could they ramp up the amount of money wasted on their sorry asses but by creating a fake crisis.

Time to put an end to the veteran welfare scam.

In 2013 the VA paid out $54 BILLION in welfare. This is nearly triple what was paid in 2000. Looks like these scabs have found the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Want to reduce spending? Stop paying all this welfare to a bunch of scammers.

Think the poor veterans are being falsely accused? go here:


and read this story.

Just another waste of money on a group that already gets far too much.

If you really want to see how the taxpayer is being screwed by veterans look at this:


Just how can anyone justify paying these sort of benefits to any one person. Not just once but many times over.

It's all a waste of money and should be stopped.

Even more proof these scumbags are out to screw the American taxpayer.


All these self-styled "heroes" really want to do is get a welfare check.

30,000 Veterans Died Waiting for VA Action,This doesn’t hold a candle to

the magnitude of atrocity that has befallen Blue Water Navy Vietnam veterans.

In 2002, the Department of Veterans Affairs (DVA/VA) Compensation Division rescinded the

health care and compensation benefits of certain Vietnam veterans. Originally, full benefits for

herbicide poisoning were granted to all Vietnam veterans who served within the Theater of

Combat by the Agent Orange Act of 1991.Left alone in the gutter. Of all the sins of Vietnam that this country is guilty of, this one is the most

disgraceful. Our Blue Water Navy Vietnam veterans are victims in a double sense. Their number

needs to be added to the victims of VA neglect and mismanagement that have been brought to

this country’s attention in the recent months.”

All that BS is nothing more than a load of crap spread by ba few scammers in the rwn and rusty silver wing groups. They would like you to believe they are entitled to a welfare check. All they are entitled to is a swift kick in the a$$.

Every day more evidence comes to light about veterans who are scamming and outright stealing from the American taxpayer.
