Of Sacred Trusts And Expiration Dates

Ed Morrissey has video of then-candidate Obama on the campaign trail in June, telling prospective voters (bolding via Capt. Ed):

We all know that the sacred trust does not end when the uniform comes off.  That’s why it’s time to build a 21st-century VA.  No more red tape.  It’s time to give every service member electronic copies of their medical records and service records upon discharge so that they can immediately get the services that they’ve earned.  No more shortfalls.  We’ll fully fund VA health care.  No more delays.  We’ll pass on-time budgets.  No more means testing.  It’s time to allow every veteran into the VA system.

Or not.
