    VetVoice:: Senate GOP to Homeless Vets: "Deal with it!"

    S. 1237: Homeless Veterans and Other Veterans Health Care Authorities Act of 2010 (GovTrack.us)

    Coburn and McConnell have no problem with voting to send men and women off to die in war, however, they sure do seem to have a problem with giving them a helping hand once they return home from serving. Disgusting.

    :lol: ModRetardBert is such a partisan hack he doesn't bother checking facts

    On May 24, 2007, the US Senate voted 80–14 to fund the war in Iraq. Coburn voted nay.[15] On October 1, 2007, the Senate voted 92–3 to fund the war in Iraq. Coburn voted nay.[16] In February 2008, Coburn said, "I will tell you personally that I think it was probably a mistake going to Iraq

    Tom Coburn - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    McConnell did vote for the funding though.

    He wasn't in office when the vote in 2003 took place, but he would of voted it. Also, the War in Iraq is not the only war we are fighting.

    The first person ever on record mauled by a bear in KY a couple of days ago.

    Alas it was not Mitch, Bush's Bitch.

    so let me get this straight, the two times he did vote he said nay, but your claim is that in 2003 he would have done differently and voted for? :lol:

    look, here's another war funding bill he opposes

    Tom Coburn Will Filibuster War Funding Unless It’s Paid For | FDL Action

    By the way the 2007 bill also funded Afghanistan, so he voted against funding that war to. OOPS

    House, Senate pass war funding bill - CNN.com


    Bertrice , you seriously need to learn to say the words "I was wrong" since you are so often.

    Plenty of Republicans ran in favor of the Iraq War before they were against it. Same thing for Afghanistan. He has no problem with sending troops on moral reasons, he just wants to make sure it's paid for. You should read your own article.

    Who cares what his reasoning is? You spread the lie that he voted for the funding of the war. He did not. It's that simple. Can you admit it? Can you say " I was wrong , Coburn did NOT vote for the funding of the wars?" You disgustingly dishonest piece of shit.

    By the way, you are correct he wants to be able to pay for things, he's financially conservative, so would it be fair to say that it's at least possible that he'd be in favor of helping homeless vets IF we had the money to fund it?

    Where did I say that? You're going to have to show me where I said he voted for funding. Here's what I said:

    He has no problem with doing so, he just wants it paid first.

    And considering his position on the government and what it should do, not sure if he'd be in favor of helping homeless vets. I would certainly hope so and would like to believe he would.
