The First Lady Michelle speaking during a visit to the Department of Veterans Affairs in Washington, D.C. earlier today. To her left is Alan Zanella, a retired Marine. Here’s a bit of what Mrs. Obama had to say:
On Thursday, the President will keep a promise that he made on the campaign by signing into law the Veterans Health Care Budget Reform and Transparency Act. This legislation guarantees a timely and predictable flow of funding for VA medical care because that’s what’s required to guarantee better care to the men and women who serve this country.
After all, our veterans’ unwavering belief in this country is what inspired them to serve in the first place. They deserve our unwavering support in return.
