Who Closed the State Of Connecticut Veterans Hospital?
Read the State Senate Bill SB239 and read the truth about who closed the doors to Connecticut's veterans and stopped veterans from entering the State Hospital.
Simsbury voters were never told it was both Senate and representatives of the Republican party and then the same guy changed the Simsbury charter—small wonder the republicans cannot win in Simsbury, or for that matter Connecticut.
The Rocky Hill Veterans Hospital was given to the war Veterans of World War I and served Veterans through war after war until with the help the Commissioner of Veterans Affairs State of Connecticut, in my opinion, is a carpet bagger. The State, lead by the Governor, the State Senate and the State House of Representatives voted to close down the Hospital for Veterans. This could not have been done with out the Democratic speaker of the House and Senate and the Governor. The Democrats control the votes at the State Capitol—this is how a State respects its Veterans. Most of those legislatures voting were not veterans, to my knownedge. Time to restore the Rocky Hill Veterans Hospital and see who is for veterans once and for all. The Governor can start with a bigger budget for the department of Veterans Affairs of the State of Connecticut.
