I know many feel we should cut regular entitlements but, should this include VA disability as well?
The New Left Radicals currently running the country will identify and exploit every crease and crack in the armor of their political enemies.
Military, military retirees, veterans and those who support them are all enemies of the New Left Radicals currently running the country.
What does S. Alinsky teach? Isolate the target and destroy it. How do you create an environment that allows cuts to VA benefits? Exploit the "Right Wing" aversion to welfare programs and demonize VA benefits as a wasteful welfare pay-out program full of fraud and abuse.
Once you get different factions (of those who are NOT among the New Left) fighting about various aspects of the VA benefit program, YOU who wield the political power may implement the cuts with a minimum of adverse consequences. Your enemies themselves have characterized the program as wasteful, and YOU get to take the CREDIT for cutting a wasteful program !
It's politically brilliant, AND a way to cut the Vets ( who are not your political allies ) and give the money saved to your political constituents !
