So Nothing Got Done This Year

When you look at 2013 there was no shortage of issues of interest to veterans.  VA operations were often in the news from the backlog on disability claims, the quality of health care or the troubled electronic medical record system.  The Stars and Stripes report that no major veteran initiatives made it out of Congress this year.  The one noteworthy black spot on that do nothing record is a budget proposal to remove COLA from retiree pay for those under 62 years old.  So when the politicians are pandering to veterans, as they do every election year, keep this year of zero accomplishments in mind before promising your vote.
