John McCain Diverts Cash from Veterans’ Paychecks into Afghan Immigration Measures
By National Insider Politics
RINO Senator John McCain has turned his back to our country once again by choosing to fund visas for Afghani interpreters and their relatives instead of helping and supporting US military veterans.
The legislation supported by McCain and proposed by New Hampshire Senator Jeanne Shaheen (pictured here) is designed to pay for Afghan Special Immigrant Visas for those who have helped the U.S. soldiers as translators and interpreters, reports Federalist Tribune.
In order to collect the money needed for the visas, Congress has made the decision to cut health care benefits for veterans and increase their co-pay for the pharmacy.
When Democrats do something like this, is not that big of a surprise, but it’s shocking when Republicans join them in their mission to sell out America. When the time came for budget cuts and for deciding who would be affected, Democrats were those who placed the target on the US military.
However, it’s infuriating to find out that traitor McCain supported the decision to cut soldiers’ health care coverage and increase their pharmacy co-pay in order to pay for the Afghan Special Immigrant Visas program created in 2009.

This shouldn’t come as a shock to veterans who have protested before in front of McCain’s office. On September 5th 2015, they gathered at Senator McCain’s Phoenix office to demand housing for homeless vets.
And still, Senator McCain somehow sees himself as a champion of veterans’ issues and he has heavily inserted himself into the investigations of the extreme failings of Veterans Affairs hospitals.
Numbers USA explained the wide range of taxpayer-funded programs the Afghanis are eligible to receive:
“Recipients are entitled to every benefit to which refugees are entitled, including travel loans, eight months of refugee cash and medical assistance, social services, up to five years of job training, job placement, and English classes,” along with employment authorization and a Social Security number.
