More on Veterans' Funding

Following up on Fixer's post on Veterans' funding, this from the Columbia (MO) Daily Tribune:

Fellow Republicans warned House Speaker Dennis Hastert and Majority Leader Tom DeLay more than a year ago that the government would come up short - by at least $750 million - for veterans' health care.

The leaders' response: Fire the messengers.
Some lawmakers say the shortfall is a product of the administration's scrimping on veterans' care to reduce the size of federal deficits.

It doesn't surprise me even a little bit that my #1 sleazeball and his dancing monkey, neither of them Veterans, had a hand in this scam.
