I started tracking this bill in January of 2021 when I first heard of it. It has not been brought to a vote once. Every year it is thrown around by politicians for their own agendas. Every year there are countless news articles, press conferences, and VSO's saying it is priority legislation. Every year certain politicians call it must past legislation. Yet it always ends up as a dead carcass on the side of the road when push comes to shove. To me it seems obvious though that this congress and administration don't want to pass it. They would rather fund illegals. Illegals who won't even pay into our tax system for years. Illegals who give their vineyards and other businesses cheap exploitable labor. Who they can at their whim send back to their country or origin for now anyways. They are creating a monster though and are going to get to the point of no return when their are 20 million illegals here. They let us fight their wars, and let the illegals pick their grapes. They treat us both like trash. To them we're all expendable. Our countries moral compass is off course and it has been off for a while. Since George Floyd, Tik Tok, and covid we as a nation have had too polarized a view. It is only going to get worse being an election year. I've lost hope in this bill. It will not get passed. I suggest all you 50k+ buckle your chinstraps and find other means because if you have a VA waiver it's not going away. Uncle Sam is gonna keep taxing all of us thousands of dollars a month so he can fund wars and support fn border jumpers. The quicker you lose hope in the MRSA the better you'll feel about it fellow Combat Veteran. It really pains me to say that, but I feel it's the truth. If you're in situation where you can get to DC on the 5th of March, go by all means and fn represent for those of us who can't or won't!

It's more than a disgrace, and it makes me feel fn hopeless and helpless. Within the next month, I'll get another annual retiree statement in the mail from DFAS showing I only get a very small fraction of the retirement check I received after becoming too disabled to serve in my beloved military. I am thankful crsc pays me a tiny fraction of it. They talk like they are going to make changes. It hypes us up to the point where we feel change is coming, only for them to neglect it to the point of it fading away again. So shameful and disgraceful. If they aren't going to make the changes then they need to shut the smurf up about it. Quit for God's sake annually reintroducing it to congress for it to keep annually getting shot down. I understand that's the process, but why does it have to be so difficult? It's a crying shame our elected officials can't get their heads out their asses. Now I get to face another year of difficulty in my many years of it. I like to think I'm pretty strong willed, but the MRSA has me on edge and its kept me their for a long time. When you are too jacked up to care for yourself things like this leave you teetering on that edge. I only wish I had my health and could go get a good job not having to even worry about the MRSA. They say they want to end veteran suicide, but actions or inactions on bills like the MRSA make me think that they don't care about that either. The less benefits they have to pay out then the more for their idiotic policies. It sucks when you're too disabled to work full time having to rely on Uncle Sam and then he taxes you like this. I'd love to go into the workforce and provide for myself, but my military service wounds prevent me from doing that. To me anymore getting combat medically retired from the military means nothing but a tax on you the rest of your life. In more ways than one too unfortunately. Tax on your health, tax on your pocketbook, tax on your family, your emotional well being, and the list goes on. I'm done with the MRSA though for now. It's never gonna pass, and it's giving me too much false hope. THEY ARE MORE CONCERNED GIVING BENEFITS TO THOSE WHO ARE NOT EVEN US CITIZENS! Not posting about it again, unless there is a rally mentioned.

Everytime a billion gets shoveled to Ukraine, it is like a kick in the pride, and it is constant. You can tell possibly which members of congress are benefiting off the war by how much and how often they approve aid to them. Stocks in the war industry perhaps? Maybe war machine factories in their districts? To think just one of those billions funds the act for a year, and they usually throw not just one but multiple to Ukraine. Sometimes a hundred times more. It's insulting to me and hopefully to many others. I get that we are sending the money in military supplies more than anything, but we have to replenish all that. The funds needed to buy more artillery shells, missle systems, body armor, tanks, etc is there obviously because it keeps getting sent. So then why can't they find the funds for the MRSA? Look we have sacred obligation to Ukraine after helping to nuclear disarm them, but we can help them after first taking care of our own!!!! WE HAVE TO RALLY! Get our voices out there. Show them our scars. Sad part about it is the life expectancy for many of us with Major Richard Star type issues, like myself and Major Star actual is our years are going to be cut short through a multitude of horriffic things because of our once combat presense. How many of the currently living 50k+ will even live to see it passed if it ever does? Too each one of those who doesn't, what do you say to them? Sorry for Uncle Sam taxing those who kept him free? Those who toed the line for him. Those who faced the enemy in combat for him. It's also sad that all they do is talk about the MRSA in congress, and it is going to be another year of just that. TALK. Hate to be political, but it is obvious the Biden Administration wants the MRSA to stay as a duck in the water. At a standstill. Personally losing hope Act ever passes.
