Obama Touts VA Reform in State of the Union, but He Has Nothing to Brag About

“As a new generation of veterans comes home, we owe them every opportunity to live the American Dream they helped defend,” said President Obama in his 2015 State of the Union address on Tuesday night. He praised a national campaign organized by First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden for helping “nearly 700,000 veterans and military spouses get new jobs,” asserting that “already, we’ve made strides” to improve life for veterans in America.
