I have no idea as to what the LOGIC is in Washington OR if there is any. Do these "legislators" REALLY NEED to have a specific "law" to "criminalize" FRAUD against veterans? Do we not already have laws on the books against fraud and anti-trust? This is how the time in Washington is being spent. Pontificating and Posturing by pushing out REDUNDANT LEGISLATION in order to appease a certain group. As to make SURE, come election time, that they can say they "supported" Veterans causes. Now, I fully support our Veterans! They are the BACKBONE of the freedoms we sometimes take for granted. I donate to Veteran organizations whenever I can afford to. But to front Legislation to protect Veterans from a crime when the protection is already afforded them under the law, is HYPOCRITICAL. Especially when legislation comes up give them more pay and financial support. Which is STRUCK DOWN by those in Washington with impunity.
