U.S. Rep Chet Edwards (D-Waco), member of the House Appropriations Committee and Chair of the House Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Subcommittee, slammed the Veterans for Foreign Wars' (VFW) discredited attack on Health Care Reform as a "betrayal" of American veterans in a Congressional hearing as a VFW witness refused to defend his own national commander's "betrayal" remarks.

The line of attack against health care reform pushed by Thomas J. Tradewell Sr., national commander of the Veterans for Foreign Wars'(VFW) and a political opponent of health care reform, has been buried by a mountain of criticism as the VFW's political credibility has been in free fall since Thomas J. Tradewell penned his screed over the weekend that Health Care Reform harms Tricare and betrays veterans.
