President Speaks at VFW Convention

Why doesn't the mainstream media report these accomplishments? This is important news for all veterans and their families.

Instead, we have coverage of these speeches only in the context of the politics of the November election.

"Thanks in large part to Tony's leadership, my administration has a solid record of accomplishment for our veterans. When my 2005 budget is approved by Congress, we will have increased overall funding for our nation's veterans by almost $20 billion, or 40 percent, since 2001. (Applause.) We have increased funding for our veterans more in four years than the previous administration did in eight years. (Applause.) To provide health care to veterans, we've increased VA medical care funding by 41 percent over the past four years."
