As veterans wait endlessly in line at the various VA facilities or are forced to take up residence in some due to debilitating wartime injuries, victims in part, of John McCain’s horrible veterans voting record, McCain can at least take solace in the knowledge that they will not be able to register to vote while waiting.
WHAT is the secretary of Veterans Affairs thinking? On May 5, the department led by James B. Peake issued a directive that bans nonpartisan voter registration drives at federally financed nursing homes, rehabilitation centers and shelters for homeless veterans. As a result, too many of our most patriotic American citizens — our injured and ill military veterans — may not be able to vote this November.
Sort of like the old saying that you shouldn’t go to the grocery store on an empty stomach. Something else for McCain to thank his buddy George Bush’s Administration for.
