Shame on you indeed!


Above: Rep. Tammy Duckworth, D-Ill, lost both her legs and the use of her right arm as a helicopter pilot in Iraq in 2004. She has chronic pain and may still lose her right arm altogether.

In video: Braulio Castillo broke his foot at the U.S. Military Preparatory School, between high school and college. Then he went on to play football in college. Thirty years later, he claimed special “military disability” benefits for his company based on chronic pain in says he has in his foot.

Castillo told Duckworth that the pain is “due to my service to our great country and I would do it again to protect this great country.”

Duckworth replied, “I’m so glad that you would be willing to play football in prep school again to protect this great country.”

She went on.

“Shame on you, Mr. Castillo. Shame on you. You may not have broken any laws … but you certainly broke the trust of this great nation. You broke the trust of veterans.”

    Tammy duckworthless is a sham. She has been using her injury from day one to get into politics and get sympathy. She is a shill for BHO and Durbin and they saw in her an opportunity to give their party a military ‘hero”. This whole scenario was totally calculated by their triumvirate.
    She took out Joe Walsh with millions from big dem donors after her attempts to get rid of Peter Roskam failed. The dems in IL redistricted Joe Walsh out of his seat, and tried to do the same with Roskam with their insane gerrymandering of Illinois.
    Now she is a HERO? Don’t buy it!!!
    This just infuriates me. This is calculated politics, nothing more. This woman does not give a damn about anyone but herself and her party cronies.
    Think about it. Since when does someone who has only been in congress a few months get this kind of platform?
    when it walks like a duck,
    and talks like a duck
    it is a duck!
