Remember during the government shutdown how Republicans helped World War II veterans storm their memorial? Remember how Rep. Randy Neugebauer, R-Texas, snarled at a National Park Service ranger for trying to abide by the law and keep the memorial closed to the public? Remember how Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, former Alaska governor Sarah Palin and others railed against President Barack Obama for the cuts to veterans’ benefits that resulted from the Cruz-caused shutdown?
“Our veterans should be above political games,” Cruz said at the Million Vets March on Oct. 13.
