Veterans deserve effective and dependable health care

Q: How would you characterize government investment in health research for military veterans?

Bongino selected, "About right."

Bongino added, "Military veterans and service members who dedicate themselves to protecting our rights and freedom around the globe deserve effective and dependable health care.

well as an intelligence failure. Bogging our intelligence apparatus down in excessive bureaucracy and arcane rules is bound to result in repeated shortcomings. We must look at increasing efficiency and reducing redundant law enforcement functions currently spread amongst an alphabet soup of different agencies. This will allow us to reduce unnecessary bureaucracy while at the same time increasing productivity and streamlining operations.
