Rep. Steve Stockman: “Obama is the first president to ever issue an order to lock veterans out of military cemeteries.”
Barack Obama is not only uniquely unqualified to be President and uniquely bad at his job, he has a unique disregard for the welfare of the American people that shows in the vindictive way he behaves.
A Texas World War II veteran attempting to visit the graves of his fellow soldiers who participated in the D-Day invasion found the gates locked for the government shutdown, according to Rep. Steve Stockman, R-Texas, even though the commission responsible for the cemeteries has $85 million on hand.
“The government has shut down 17 times,” Stockman tweeted. “Obama is the first president to ever issue an order to lock veterans out of military cemeteries.”
Donny Ferguson, a spokesman for the congressman, said they found out that the gates were locked when a constituent – a U.S. Army paratrooper who landed in Normandy on D-Day – notified them that he had been unable to enter the cemetery.
….Ferguson told the Washington Examiner that the (American Battle Monuments Commission) has $85 million left over from fiscal year 2012.
As you read story after story highlighting Barack Obama’s despicable behavior and complete disregard for our nation’s veterans, keep in mind that he also wants to control whether you get health care or not via Obamacare. If he’d lock veterans out of cemeteries and go after little kids with cancer for the sake of politics, you better believe he will try to cut off your health care if he thinks it will benefit him.
