orange county california  August 14, 2007 Supervisor John Moorlach has said NO to Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs. Operation Firing For Effect is a Veterans Advocacy Group that wants to have Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs put on the election ballot for 2008. Board of Supervisor John Moorlach has reviewed OFFE Resolution August 14, 2006 and said.”Orange County  Board of Supervisors will not pursue Full Mandatory Funding Resolution at this time” “This is a federal issue and Orange County Board of Supervisors has a policy to stay away from federal issues"

Operation Firing For Effect  OFFE California Robin (Rusty) Rustan said” this is an American Issue and the People of the United States have a right to Vote on Mandatory Health Care Funding.

Orange County Board of Supervisors could have taken a position to support all those that serve in Armed Services past, present and future with the stroke of a pen by recommending that this question be put on the election ballot of 2008 to the voters of Orange County, California. The question that would appear on the ballot is:

“Shall the federal government be required to adopt full mandatory funding of the Department of Veterans Affairs for the purpose of ensuring that all eligible honorably discharged U.S. veterans receive quality and accessible healthcare and services?”

Operation Firing For Effect is awaiting a Vote from the City of Huntington Beach, California. Rusty Rustan presented OFFE Resolution on July 2, 2007 for Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding of Veterans Affaris to Mayor Coerper and he said in a public hearing that the City Council will vote on this Resolution for veterans healthcare. OFFE Hope is that the City of Huntington Beach will support  our Men and Women who serve in Armed Forces with a yes vote on this Resolution.

Orange County Veterans Advisory Council has been presented Operation Firing For Effect Resolution on August 8, 2007 for their Board of Directors to vote on Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding. This Veterans Advisory Council is appointed by the Orange County Board of Supervisors. Once they vote on Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding for Veterans Affairs on September 12, 2007 at OC Veterans Advisory Council board meeting could change the direction of O.C. Board of Supervisors decision to support  Mandatory Full Funding for Veterans Affairs.

Operation Firing For Effect ask those that are concerned for our Men and Women who serve in Armed Forces to Call Supervisor John Moorlach Office (714) 834-3100, ask for Mr. Ian Ridge intern, and let him know that this an American issue and the People of the United States have a right to vote for healthcare for our American Veteran who serve so proudly protect the United States of America and keep Our Country out of harms way.

OFFE also presented a Resolution to State of California Veterans Affairs, California Veterans Board to their Laguna Hills Board meeting  August 10, 2007 and Chairman Chong and his Board of Directors were asked to make a Resolution to approve Full Mandatory Funding for Veterans Affairs and they will consider a vote possibly  October 18, or 19 in their next Board Meeting in Sacramento, California.

Moving Forward Rusty Rustan has made contact with the State Legislation and requested appointments with Govorner Arnold Schwarzeneggar plus State Senator Tom Hamen and Assemblyman Jim Silva to get their support to have Full Mandatory Healthcare Funding on the election ballot of 2008.
