Veterans to be shafted again

Veterans are again, about to get shafted. This information came from the Texas Democratic Vets, a group I belong to and support.

Lt. Gen. Terry Scott (U.S. Army, ret.), who is Chairman of theVeterans' Disability Benefits Commission (VDBC), wants to study vetswho get Social Security Disability Insurance (SSDI) as well as VA compensation. The goal is an offset (reduction) in payments to veterans.The VDBC's charter doesn't allow this, so, in an unconstitutional move, he asked Congress to interpret their own law, to give himpermission to do this. Go here VA Watchdog to read more.
