Such hypocrisy, I watched a news clip of this ship's commissioning, days after I read a story in my local paper about homeless veterans homes closing or cutting back in my state because of Trump and the GOP. These people claim to support veterans while they're cutting veterans services here. I'm pissed off.
Federal Cuts Lead Wisconsin Veterans Agency To Close Homeless Housing Programs
"WDVA Secretary Daniel Zimmerman sent a letter to veteran advocacy groups on July 14 saying federal funding for the Veteran Housing and Recovery Programs at King and Union Grove will end in September. The state will continue to fund the programs through December if needed but it's not feasible to continue them beyond that."
But our government can pay for a huge ship costing many billions of dollars. Damned hypocrites.
