    Jon and John needs to recover the money trump stole for 9/11 first responders health care!?

  2. I set so many fires in Iraq and Afghanistan I became a f***ing Fire Starter…😂

  3. I like Presidents that aren’t draft dodgers.

    • Seriously?! Grow up! You are completely missing the point of this report! Maybe use your time and energy to help, and back this bill to help veterans affect by toxic burn pits!

    • Is That Passive Aggressive? ☺️🇺🇸🍀

    • Biden, 5 deferments asthma
      Lifeguard? They don’t hire lifeguards with asthma🤭
      Comrade Bernie, conscientious objector.
      Bill Clinton oxford university denounce his citizenship.
      Dicky Blumenthal stolen Valor.
      Bruce springsteen draft dodger
      John wayne draft dodger
      Charlie Daniels draft dodger
      Hundred of demonrat hollywood elites draft dodgers.

    • sb they’ll get over it

    • @Kim BStrong yup that’s always the case, the hypocrisy of left knows no bounds.

  4. Vets should get anything they need period. Or want.
    We expect them to go fight but we can’t give them what they need?

    • @Penny Sutch you are so right!
      I appreciate the sacrifice and I can’t believe the way vets are treated.
      Here in Massachusetts, we do much more with nonprofits to respect and support our veterans.

    • Sounds like socialism!

    • BELLA ! 22 y.o I WANT SЕЕХ !!!! OPEN MY VIDEO !!!! | September 16, 2020 at 11:00 AM | Reply

      🖤💚🍑

    • TRUMP HAS DONE MORE FOOR OUR MILITARY THAN ANY PRESIDENT…JUST ASK HIM….FROZE WAGES ON THIRD DAY OF PRESIDENCY AND IS STILL FROZE TO THIS DAY…MAKING NEW WEAPONS, AND SELLING THEM TO OTHER COUNTRIES DOES NOT HELP OUR MILITARY…OR RENTING THEM TO SAUDI ARABIA, AND KOREA DOESN’T EITHER….THIS IS WHAT TRUMP HAS DONE…

    • @Gary Kubodera IT TAKES YEARS TO FORM A CONNECTION, THEN YEARS TO FORM EACH PERSON TO THE CONNECTION…VIETNAM, TROOPS ARE STILL WAITING ON CONNECTION FOR TROOPS, WITH MEDICAL PROBLEMS TO AGENT ORANGE….NO ONE BUT MOSCOW MITCH WORKS SLOWER THAN TRUMP…

  5. Those rep politicians won t spend a dime to help som1 they don t know personally, unless he has billions

  6. Sad. As a disabled US ARMY VETERAN and VA employee, I watched first hand what happened to the 1st round of Gulf War vets and how they were told again and again that there was no connection to the problems they experienced after returning from their service.. Reminds me of how the VA and their scientists acted by denying any connection of disability for their service even when over 100,000 veterans returned with problems and the VA eventually approved benefits to them. Discraseful!! These veterans deserve better from our country!! 😥

  7. Health care in America is only
    For the rich! The system set up that way! Hospitals dump patients without morals or ethics! MAGa the military gets used abused and forgotten quickly

  8. With all the chaos tRump creates has kept the public from knowing about all this. This is horrendous!!!

  9. The toxic fires were mostly peaceful.

    Jon help those people. Good luck to you. Tang does have respect for any soldier or any American. God help us. People please for the love of God or who revere you pray to get this killer out of the white house. Please vote Joe please.

    So sad that we can’t take care of the service people who have taken care of us. Wake up Congress

    All our forces are fighting for the people they should be fighting against. The greed driven crooks at the top need to go bye bye for good…

  13. America has comedians doing more for veterans than the draft dodger.

    • What’s he doing? Oh he comes out now? where was he when New York cut $1 billion dollars from 1st responders. Where was this hypocrite comedian at when cops (1st responders ) are being defunded all over the country? This moron says nothing when cops are being murdered and ambushed in the streets. The same 1st responders killed in 911. Since you don’t like draft dodgers who are you going to vote for then?
      Biden 5 deferments asthma news flash they don’t hire lifeguards with asthma.
      Comrade Bernie, draft dodger, conscientious objector. Bill Clinton draft Dodger, via Oxford University, via tried to denounce his citizenship. Dicky Blumenthal stolen Valor. The lefts hero bruce springsteen, even John wayne, charlie daniels all draft dodgers along with hundreds of democrat hollywood elites. You’re pretty ignorant aren’t you?

  14. They want you serve but don’t want to take of the veterans when they come home with health problems.
