Which Political Party Supports Veteran Issues More: Republicans or Democrats?

Many people in here will be shocked, but I believe the Democrats support Vets more when it comes to their care. (It's just my opinion.)

I'm shocked to find myself agreeing with you ProudCapMarine but I agree that Democrats support veteran issues more. What I find absolutely appalling is that despite prolonging their tours of duty and making the troops go back to Iraq again and again to risk their lives, George Bush opposed increasing their salary. They're already some of the lowest paid workers in the country and they do a heck of a lot more than most people but Bush didn't think they deserved a slight pay raise? It's insanity. I think he did it because he'd already blown so much money mishandling the war and he decided that spending some more of our tax money on something that we actually might support was just too much to ask. And Walter Reed Hospital? Come on!

He knew it would cost a few billion dollars and still he opposed it which I find ludicrous considering that this war has already cost us almost a trillion dollars. What's a few more billion to help out the brave people who carry out George Bush's will?

Democrats, the only people republicans are for is the wealthy, and the big companys. They dont give a rats a** about anyone else including our troops.

Default I have views on both sides of the fence. I vote by choice, not by party.

I believe in a strong military, but I also believe the military men and women should be cared for after they serve and sacrifice...

And I agree with that. It's so sad to read about all the Vietnam War vets who are homeless now. We need to prevent that from happening to the Iraq War vets.
