    Yeah I guess the veterans who fought for our county are leaching victims too, and don't matter. Unbelievable!.

    The repubs think that killing every piece of legislation is a good thing.

    It would be helpful if you could post a link to the Bill in its entirety.

    Liberals have an aversion to reading the fine print.

    Paul Riechoff (SFQC wannabe and SFASdrop out/reject) is no James Rowe . One does not recieve a patch until one is notified of the ODA team one qualifies for over 56 to 95 weeks -there is the first clue about the Riechoff's of the world.Paul Riechoff is not the voice of all veterans and he is known for self promotion and 'not playing well with others' in the veteran's community.If there was a block due to budget (pay-go issues)then perhaps there was genuine concern over where the money will come from.Otherwise the link to the huff post poster boy's lobbying darling is not impressive . I prefer to find the actual bill,attatchments etc and votes and will get back to you on my final answer- hopefully faster than Harvard will get back to its vets awaiting Yellow Ribbon Program funding

    Ever heard of the budget? How about the massive deficit? "More than 2000 businesses have hired or trained 125,00 veterans and military spouses in the past year". We are already doing it, we don't need to go into more debt for an election year political stunt by the democrats.

    Republican's are doing everything they can to keep the economy from recovering. They think no one will notice on election day that they've done nothing to help American's back to work.

    "we don't need to go into more debt for an election year political stunt"

    I usually keep it light on this board because there is too much anger. But as a 22 year U.S. Marine (now retired), I can't let this one go by. George Bush did not have a problem putting us in debt with and unfunded war that was at best, based on faulty Intel, or, at worst, based on a bald faced lie. A lie btw that cost over 4000 American lives, and many more permanent disabilities. So when U.S. servicemen in an ALL-VOLUNTEER military offer to put their lives on the line for not the best income in the world, the provisions offered under this bill is not too much to ask-ASSHOLE.

    Whos' sock puppet are you? "I usually keep it light on this board" but you have 13 posts total.

    You are probably lying about your military service as well.

    Dumbass.

    I call bullshit on your 'service. If you were, you would not use our war dead for political point scoring. You're just a pretender - and a sick freak for using our war dead for your pathetic partisan crap.

    Bush did not 'put us in debt' and the 'unfunded' wars account for very little of the actual debt.

    The Dems are yanking your chain... and like a good little borg - you're buyin' it. Fucking freak.
