Halt Grab of Veterans' Land

I love Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA).

For a period during the Bush administration, it felt like the only compelling loyal Democratic opposition was from Waxman, Feingold and Kucinich.

But Waxman has earned the wrath of veterans the nation-over for his bizarre commitment to overseeing appropriating veterans' land in West Los Angeles

Writes Robert L. Rosebrock, director of The Veterans Revolution:

Veteran land is land that has been deeded to the Veterans to take care of their physical and emotional wounds. One of these lands the West Los Angeles Veterans' Home (WL VHA) the largest parcel on land for Veterans in the USA, was donated by Arcadia de Baker and John P. Jones in 1888 to the Government for the sole purpose of providing permanent care to our Veterans. Arcadia de Baker kindly donated 388 acres in West Los Angeles, to Veterans and our Veterans ONLY.

Rep. Waxman, what are you thinking?
Why are you helping to appropriate this land that veterans clearly regard as sacred?

This is a slap in the face of our 23-million veterans who have been beaten on far too often during the Bush administration as it privatized, abused and neglected the public welfare of veterans whose plight is our collective disgrace.

Waxman is better than this, much better. For more information see Veterans Land Grab.
