Senator Richard Burr to the Veterans’ Affairs Committee

Senator Richard Burr comments to the Veterans' Affairs commitee regarding Camp Lejeune Water contamination. Seems they can see their way through to help the Agent Orange vets, but didn't see that the families of those same vets suffered here at home suffer and die daily from the contamination they grew up with at Camp Lejeune. It a shame...

Senator Burr really gives them what for in this video, however, his words are in vain since they did not, in his words, "act in the best interest of North Carolina veterans when it voted against my amendment to provide health care through the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) to veterans and their family members exposed to contaminated drinking water at Camp Lejeune. This is a disservice to the people who have sacrificed on behalf of this country, and I will continue to push on this issue. During the hearing, I strongly urged my colleagues to rethink this issue."

We the affected also strongly urge them to rethink this issue. If it was their family, or even their state as Senator Burr suggests, I bet they would.

Thank you Senator Burr for your continued support.
