First and foremost, like having a president who never served in the military during a war, having a non-veteran chair the Veteran's Affairs Committee makes as much sense as having a man explain the experience of giving birth.
Murray has fooled a great many Veterans. I have tried to get her office to explain to me why, as a matter of course, I pay half as much to get my prescriptions at WalMart, Fred Meyers, Costco or Walgreens than I do at the VA... and her people won't even make the effort to find out.
That's right, ladies and gentlemen... non-serving civilians get better "benefits" at "Freddies" then honorably serving veterans at the VA when it comes to prescriptions.
Murray is very big on veterans when she's running for re-election.
The rest of the time?
Not so much.
