Protecting Obamacare. Not Veterans.
President Obama, Harry Reid and congressional Democrats continue to play politics. They are willing to oppose bills they support — like funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs — in order to prolong a shutdown of their own creation. As Heritage Action’s CEO Michael A. Needham said, “This cynical political strategy may play well at Democrat campaign events, but it only serves to reinforce what many Americans already knew: President Obama and his political allies care only about protecting a failed law that is hurting the country, not about protecting the people they’re supposed to represent.”
