    "The bill, HR 4114, was passed by the House in July and is intended to provide more than 3.9 million veterans and their survivors with a cost-of-living adjustment to disability compensation and benefits meant to offset inflation and other factors, according to Murray’s office. The bill normally passes each year without controversy."

    "Last week, Senate Republicans blocked a bill to create a Veterans Job Corps after raising procedural objections over the program’s cost.

    Veterans’ representatives reacted angrily to Murray’s disclosure.

    “It is outrageous that disabled American veterans are once again being held hostage to partisan politics,” said Bob Wallace, executive director of the Veterans of Foreign Wars.

    Failure to pass the bill could cost veterans and their families up to $500 next year, according to Paul Sullivan, director of veterans outreach for Bergmann & Moore, a law firm concentrating on VA disability law.

    The vets I know dont need or want the government to give them everything. They fought and bled so that they and others could have the freedom to pursue their own paths. I don't know why the left always acts like Vets are some incompetant group of people who can't do anything for themselves. It couldn't be further from the truth.

    Moot point anyway since you are misrepresenting the bill.
