    Why does Fox use a CGI for the White House that has blue stripes?

    One of the ways to "improve" VA care is to address a widespread disability claim approval there. 45% of recent wars participants are on disability, and this number is growing. The most frequent reason listed for disability is ringing in the ear. The others are similar to gastric reflux problems. Abuse of tax payer money by veterans encouraged by VA administration and media.

    Veterans could suffer if Trump’s budget deflates Meals on Wheels

    we need this over in Oregon so bad. We have vet's all over the state and very limited va medical centers with the care we need. I can't afford to go 77 miles 3 or more times a week to get the care I need and so far they can only provide this help for one type of visit. please if you guys care then we need some help.

    When the Veterans Administration admits to the Halliburton KBR water purification violations in 2004-2006 resulting in parasitic pathogens that lead to murders and suicides, then I might believe this fecal matter. 22 + Soldiers dying from unknown illnesses and respiratory issues as well as suicides? I believe that they are Culling the Veterans out because we are the most dangerous hope if America was to fall to an evil organization. Tusu'naa, Aho! Comanche for Peace and prayers!

    Trump credits Republicans for veterans bill Democrats introduced and sponsored
    By Tommy Christopher |
    APRIL 19, 2017
    Donald Trump thanked a long list of people when he signed the Veterans Choice Program Extension And Improvement Act, but failed to mention the bill's Democratic author, or the 12 other Democrats who co-sponsored the bill.
    As we reported earlier, Press Secretary Sean Spicer tried to give Donald Trump credit for the Veterans Choice Program Extension And Improvement Act.
    But in fact, the bill was sponsored by Democratic Senator Jon Tester (D-MT), whose Democratic co-sponsors outnumbered Republicans by 12-8
    But when signing the bill into law, after passing both houses by unanimous voice vote, Trump didn’t even have the class or dignity to mention the Democrats, let alone thank any of them:

    54:17 No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.54:14 In righteousness shalt thou be established: thou shalt be far from oppression; for thou shalt not fear: and from terror; for it shall not come near thee.54:15 Behold, they shall surely gather together, but not by me: whosoever shall gather together against thee shall fall for thy sake.54:16 Behold, I have created the smith that bloweth the coals in the fire, and that bringeth forth an instrument for his work; and I have created the waster to destroy.

    The VA has gotten so bad this last year I truly HATE going there! Had 3 appointments this week and ended up walking out of all 3! These people working for the VA are only 8 to 4 people and we are only lemmings to them, they appear to dislike talking with (DOWN) to you and disregard what is wrong with you and do as they VA says and screw the Veteran! Tired of the BS, been going there since 1970 and watched as it has gone south ever since BUT the last year has gotten so bad, actually discussing! I doubt the VA can be repaired, they would have to CLEAN HOUSE to fix it and I doubt we'll ever see that! I know I won't, the worms will be eating into my brain by then!

  15. Robert Hudson   April 21, 2017 at 2:22 am

    He's helping the vets by golfing at his luxury resorts every weekend. You must be insane if you think this kraut cares about American vets.

    I really thought it was VA as in virginia LOL

  18. R.A. Dalton   April 21, 2017 at 4:34 am

    A rationalist viewpoint on this matter. I am a moderate independent voter and a retired U.S. Army Master Sergeant (1972-1993) who voted for Trump. No plan at present will solve the problems of the aging VA system and its time to consider more radical ideas to resolve this issue once and for all. The major problem with the VA system is its inability to attract enough Doctors and other qualified medical staff. Most VA hospitals are significantly short of medical staff which causes most of the reported problems. Throwing more money at the problem will not necessarily solve the issue as many doctors, and other specialist medical personnel, simply do NOT want to work for the government for one reason or another. The VA system was created at a time when many rural and other areas did not have adequate medical treatment facilities having qualified Doctors who could treat war injuries. The VA medical system ensured that veterans throughout America could get the care they needed from a medical facility, usually within a reasonable travel distance. Today most communities throughout America have a non-profit or commercial hospital available to them, often far closer to most veterans than the VA hospitals, and staffed with a wide range of civilian medical specialist doctors. It is time to realize that things have changed here, and that this societal change affords another way of treating veterans. I would recommend that the VA hospital system be disbanded and that veterans be allowed to obtain their needed care from civilian hospitals, clinics and other medical facilities in their local area or nearby and paid for something along the lines of TRICARE. Short of drafting doctors and other medical staff for the VA hospital system, which isn’t going to happen, this may be the only way to finally resolve these veteran care problems once and for all.

    It did not emerge under its predecessor. It has been an issue in some areas of the country for decades. Other areas of the country have done well. Also the bill he is extending is an Obama bill. The Obama administration turned alot around and set many programs and efforts in motion also with the hard and diligent work of the Bidens. Always a slam and innuendos that don't prove out. How about just focus on putting our veterans first. Trump needs to be progressive in his own right and stop riding Obamas coat tail while stabbing in the back.

  24. Plain & Simple   April 21, 2017 at 7:27 am

  25. darwin5763   April 21, 2017 at 8:10 am

    Elizabeth Warren truly a failed senator she hasn't a clue.

  26. Jose Angel Hernandez   April 21, 2017 at 8:35 am

    President Warren! I voted for Senator Warren when I lived in MA, and would be honored, YES HONORED, to vote for her again as President, only this time as a resident of Texas!

  27. Zero Zero   April 21, 2017 at 8:50 am

    A Senator speaking the truth – rare.

  28. mic01   April 21, 2017 at 9:29 am

    I hope some of the proceeds from the book goes to the people of her reservation, thank you Chief Running Bull Warren.

  29. Helen Beauregard   April 21, 2017 at 9:49 am

    Rachel Anne.
    Excellent job.
    Keep digging.
    Stay focused,pay attention.
    You are awesome.
    Keep on moving forward.
    Hello Elizabeth.

  32. Pace Yrself   April 21, 2017 at 11:57 am

    Great interview. Liked how Rachel asked good questions but sat back and let Senator Warren answer them. Very Important talking points.

  33. OneEyedMonster   April 21, 2017 at 12:47 pm

    Warren is a complete phony.
    Maddow is the real deal. Real fake news.

  34. Mary Mac   April 21, 2017 at 12:49 pm

    I believe that what she is saying is true. Now, how do we mobilize those of us who still care about ALL of us and not just ourselves into one voice, one movement that can limit the damage tRump inflicts upon us and keep our country moving forward?

  35. Never trump   April 21, 2017 at 1:06 pm

    Dems need Mark Cuban. He would mop the floor with Trump.
