Obama’s speech was height of hypocrisy

Re “Obama Tells Congress: Help the poor, or I will” (Page A1, Jan. 29): Tears were brought to the eyes of many members of Congress when the president introduced an Army Ranger, partially paralyzed while serving in Afghanistan. Applause for his sacrifice went on and on. Yet it is this president that recently signed a bill introduced by this same Congress that reduces the annual cost-of-living increases for veterans, even those with grievous injuries, by 1 percent. It was a stellar example of political hypocrisy.
