‘PROTECTING HEALTH CARE TOPS V.F.W. LEGISLATIVE AGENDA.’

From  Tim Dyhouse V.F.W. Wire

‘TRADEWELL SPEAKS DIRECT TO THE CONGRESS. OFFERS ADVICE AND CRITICIZED ERRORS. OFFERS A NINE POINT SOLUTION TO LAWMAKERS.

   The V.F.W. Commander In Chief Thomas J. Tradewell was meeting with the Senate and House Veteran Committees to speak about care of veterans and the state of the VA. “America’s veterans and military retirees look to you-our champions in congress-to protect both programs to do so vocally at every opportunity. ”  

   Chairman of the House VA Committee Rep. Bob Filner (D) CA. promised  to put the concerns of the vets at the top of the list. Here are some of the ideas presented by Commander Tradewell to the congress:

#Medical Care Allocate 52 Billion toward veteran care for year 2011 and enroll 125, 000 new Category 8 veterans into the VA health care system the next four years.

#Mental health Care-Develop strong outreach and education programs utilize meaningful post deployment health assessments and urge vets to reach out to new members.

#Family caregivers-Support–  S 1963 and assistance for all caregivers but oppose a program mandate without the necessary funding.

#POW/MIA -Have congress fund programs to fully account for those still missing in action and to bring them home.

#Post 9-11 GI Bill- To assist in College and living stipends.

  In the opinion of the Catholic American, Good. Our veterans put their lives on the line for the number one reason, FREEDOM for us here! We as good citizens should honor them not only on Veteran’s Day or Memorial Day, but all year round for the fine work they do!  In this writer’s opinion,  past and present wars. God Bless!

  2. ‘OBAMA WANTS TO DOUBLE EXPORTS.’

    With unemployment at its highest point, the Obama Administration wishes to double export leaving the United States. Part of this plan is to reduce limits on business and the family farmers on how they do business with other countries. Explore dealing again with the counrty of Cuba. Get into more world markets with such countries as India, China, and the Russians.

    In this writer’s opinion, Good idea. We have to not only get doublle on exports but have a fair playing field to trade with countries. Once again, end the NAFTA Agreement or change it as it’s bad for America.

    Tax goods coming here if they will not agree to us exporting goods such as care and the like. Good ideas such as helping farmers, business, and worker. That is what has to be done and hopefully, not to late!
