There is nothing moral about the way military veterans are treated by the VA – unless you are a government union boss. J. David Cox Sr., president of the American Federation of Government Employees, spoke at the June 16 “Moral Monday” political protest at the North Carolina state legislature. Cox loudly touted the benefits unions provide … to patients of the Veterans Administration. Apparently he doesn’t pay much attention to the news. (To see a short clip of his remarks, click below.)
Later Cox and his chief of staff, Bryan DeWyngaert, were arrested along with 18 others for trespassing after trying to disrupt the state Senate. They were arrested after warnings from General Assembly police to quiet down or leave the building. You might be surprised to hear Cox and DeWyngaert were devoting so much time shouting at a political protest rather than trying to remedy the VA’s disgraceful lack of care for so many men and women who have served our country.
