Government needs more of the Lord 


Tuesday, June 10, 2014 — Why is there so much distrust in our government system? Why can’t our elected ones get along with each other and handle the VA scandal and the issue with the Marine in jail in Mexico without forming panels to “look at the issue”?

The government needs more of the Lord in them instead of doing dishonest things for the party they belong to. They need to read the Constitution instead of their checkbooks. All of the veterans of this country deserve better.

Obama knew about the VA problem when he was in the Senate and the White House has known of these problems for over 10 years. We can help all the other countries at the drop of a hat, but we can’t help the homeless and sick veterans.

There are some good people working and caring for vets, but they have guidelines on how much care to give. I myself received three Purple Hearts and have been fighting their system for years. Our Lord would help with these problems if only our politicians would ask with a clean heart. Please pray for them.
