(Before It's News)

A bombshell report appeared today, showing Senator John McCain’s shocking use of veteran money that is causing many Veterans to see red: money that should be going to Vets are going to refugees.

McCain is backing an amendment proposed by democrats that would increase the amount of Afghan immigrants to the U.S. by up to 36%. The increased cost would end up being covered with cash that was originally set aside for U.S. veterans’ programs.

“The amendment proposed by New Hampshire Democratic Sen. Jeanne Shaheen — and supported by McCain — will increase the number of Afghan Special Immigrant Visas for people who have aided U.S. soldiers as interpreters or translators. The number of visas will rise from 7,000 to 11,000, and each visa holder can bring spouses and their children to the United States.

“Congress cut healthcare benefits to veterans in the 2016 budget by increasing pharmacy co-pays — using some of those savings to fund an expansion of the Afghan Special Immigrant Visas program, according to The Daily Caller News Foundation. The money could have been taken from other spending accounts, such as programs at the State Department.”

The U.S. government is having enough trouble getting our veterans the assistance they deserve, let alone with people like John McCain stifling their coffers.
