LETTER: Blocked bills show Republicans don’t support the military, veterans

To the editor:

If Republican patriots truly support our troops, then why did they block all of these bills to help veterans?

Here’s a few that they have blocked:

• Veterans Affairs Funding — 2015

• Women Veterans and Families Health Services Act — 2014

• Veterans Health and Benefits and Military Pay Restoration Act — 2014

• Veterans Job Corps Act — 2012

• Homeless Woman Veterans and Homeless Veterans with Children Act — 2010

And because they blocked funding for extra security in Benghazi, people died. So you tell me how Hillary Clinton is responsible for that? The Republicans are responsible for those killings. They refused to fund more security!

Four months after the Benghazi attacks, in January 2013, Hillary Clinton was summoned to testify in front of a Senate committee investigating the attacks. She was cleared of any wrongdoing.

So I say to you today, you can make a big difference, whether you support Bernie Sanders or Hillary Clinton — vote for our troops. Vote Democrat. A Republican vote would be against our military and our country.
