Congress To VA Rulemakers: "Not So Fast. We Need The Money!"

You can't make this stuff up!  Congress has a bill going to DISALLOW the reduction of the VA Funding Fee.  It seems that they think they need the money more than our Veterans. 

What can you do? 

Pick up the phone!  Get involved.  Call your senators to complain!

Here's a link to find YOUR SENATORS and their phone numbers.  Let's do it now!

Congress doesn't worry about getting paid.  They don't worry about healthcare.  The only thing they worry about is what their constituents think about them, and in my humble opinion, they don't worry enough.  Give them something to worry about. 

Give them a call!
