Whether it’s the veterans who have died waiting for medical care at Veterans Affairs facilities, or the disabled, homeless Marine Corps. vet who was turned away by the VA, or the vets still waiting to receive care, it’s hard to believe that these stories are no longer receiving wall-to-wall coverage.
It’s especially unbelievable when you consider that the thousands of illegal immigrants coming into America are receiving timely medical treatment–and not the horrific waiting lists that our vets are exposed to.
Thankfully, there are still news outlets that are willing to report on the disgraceful medical care our vets are receiving compared to other groups.
On “Special Report,” Bret Baier featured a sobering report which concluded that there are 124 medical personnel at Gitmo and 149 detainees. That’s a nearly 1 to 1 ratio.
Baire’s report echoes a Fox News poll that said 50-31 percent of voters think the terrorists held at Guantanamo Bay get better health care than veterans.
