With the debate over benefits (health care and so forth), should military veterans receive more health and other benefits than other US citizens (the farmers, police, cashiers, firemen, etc)?  Should these benefits be a right (or not a right) for all US citizens or even based on need, not military service?

Wall Street Journal: Wounded Vets Deserve Better

(NOTE: Someone recommended that all vets should receive the same health care as members of the House and Senate or vice versa.)

    Can't come tonight. Sick. Vets should receive better care than Congressmen because they actually SERVE this country. And it should be FREE!

    Here is a paper that Bernie wanted us to read about vitamins that he wrote. I disagree with much of it. However, I said that i would post it for him. https://docs.google.com/file/d/0B1Mivrqyo-dEdGpiVmRCVUJKSFk/preview

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
