Back in 2008 while running for president, Hillary Clinton said taking care of veterans is the “highest obligation” of the president.
“As a president, President Bush has not done what needed to be done for our veterans. We haven’t funded the VA. We have so many coming home who are injured and not being taken care of. I think it is the highest obligation of the president who is also our Commander in Chief to take care of those who have served our nation. And, I pledge to you, I will take care of our veterans.”
But that was back in 2008.
In a weird twist, we have not heard a peep from Hillary Clinton since this whole VA scandal blew up a few weeks ago.
