The VA may have to curtail services to our veterans because of budget shortfalls.

Cuts include closing hospitals that serve our nations heroes. Increasing demand for services like treating Hepatitis C is putting a strain on allocated revenue.

However there doesn't seem to be a shortfall for the new prairie dog vaccination program as a way to control the plague. See, prairie dogs are the main diet for the black footed ferrets that we have spent countless millions on since they were discovered to exist in Wyoming  in 1981.

It's a sad day for America when our nation's finest men and women take a back seat to a rodent. It makes me sick.
