Mark Udall kills VA, Vets health benefits bill with pork, gimmicks
Sen. Mark Udall (D-CO) helped kill a senate bill that would have restored benefits to our veterans and ensured their access to health care for medical problems related to their service. Udall and Sen. Michael Bennet (D-CO) voted for the bill that died because it is full of pork and provisions that would have paid for veterans medical care that had nothing to do with their military service. Those provision would have made VA health care even more of a single payer plan and would have overwhelmed VA hospitals and clinics to the point that they would not be able to serve the veterans who need to have their military-related injuries and traumas treated. This is just another example of how Udall and Bennet let the most corrupt senate majority leader in history, Sen. Harry Reid (D-NV), lead them around like the lemmings and hacks that they are.
