Dear Fellow Veterans & Friends.

My congressman from Florida Rick Keller got a 0% rating. HE came cout with a congressional bulliten. The whole thing was about one issue. The selling of Ocla national forest near by. This is just a red herring issue made up by the republitcan to draw attention away from real issues. Just like the flag, school prayer, gay marriages. But vets go for those issues. Thats why reppublicans were put in power at tha last elwction by 65%.

Florida republicans talk a good fight about veterans benefits but vote against mandatory funding. Florida is a state ruled by Solid South democrates that changed their KKK hoods for Republican credentials.

Any state that would elect Jeb Bush is no friend to vets. The culture of corruption is right there in Tallahassee Florida.

I think the jig is getting "up" for republicans in congress as far as we Vets are concerned. There is just too much hard and fast data that too many of them talk a big game but vote in greater numbers than Dems against Vet issues. I guess they connect these down votes in some way with "conservative" expending of the public funds as well as voting for "smaller" government.

In truth I'm beginning to wonder if this group tends to be rich folks who have figured a way to snooker we who believe in traditional values by connecting belief in these issues with their own selfish aims. You know, let the church take care of the poor, if you cant earn it on your own screw you .big government is bad etc

I've voted Republican for years now becasue I've bought into the talk they talk. Now at a more advanced stage in my life I'm wondering if I have to start voting more my self interests, which is much more the way the Dems tend to ACT then the Repubs.

I think they vote against vet issues because they have given all the tax money back to the rich. The republicans hate government programs that benefit poor people and love programs that benefit the rich. This is just what they are about is making the rich, richer. That is their program in a nutshell. The republicans are on a spending binge but not for poor and middle class Americans.

    Tips on posting on the forums.

    1. Post a clear title like ‘Need help preparing PTSD claim’ or “VA med center won’t schedule my surgery instead of ‘I have a question.
       
    2. Knowledgeable people who don’t have time to read all posts may skip yours if your need isn’t clear in the title.
      I don’t read all posts every login and will gravitate towards those I have more info on.
       
    3. Use paragraphs instead of one massive, rambling introduction or story.
       
      Again – You want to make it easy for others to help. If your question is buried in a monster paragraph, there are fewer who will investigate to dig it out.
     
    Leading too:

    exclamation-point.pngPost straightforward questions and then post background information.
     
    Examples:
     
    • Question A. I was previously denied for apnea – Should I refile a claim?
      • Adding Background information in your post will help members understand what information you are looking for so they can assist you in finding it.
    Rephrase the question: I was diagnosed with apnea in service and received a CPAP machine, but the claim was denied in 2008. Should I refile?
     
    • Question B. I may have PTSD- how can I be sure?
      • See how the details below give us a better understanding of what you’re claiming.
    Rephrase the question: I was involved in a traumatic incident on base in 1974 and have had nightmares ever since, but I did not go to mental health while enlisted. How can I get help?
     
    This gives members a starting point to ask clarifying questions like “Can you post the Reasons for Denial of your claim?”
