    This is horrible but unfortunately nothing new for the US government. After WW1 the troops had been promised future pay and when times got desperate for the veterans the US government refused to help them and they marched many armed on Washington and the active duty military was called in to stop them from taking the capitol and the Government magically started listening to their needs and helped them but they learned if your going to make many of these promises of benefits happen when people are old or injured making it easier and less dangerous to screw them over without much repercussions. It is immoral as anything but it is unsurprising just disappointing. Trusting the government has always been a dubious act and considering that it is going broke and the dollar is likely to be removed as the world reserve currency in the next few decades maybe sooner is likely to get worse before it gets better.
