    Senate Republicans blocked the most recent Vetrans Jobs Bill.

    Reasons given were that the allocations of funding for the proposed bill was not offset by a spending cut elsewhere, and that there are six other Vetrans Jobs programs already in existance.

    When Senator Tom Coburn was asked about the 11% Unemployment rate among our Vetrans (with that number being higher among our younger Vetrans), his responce was that we should Overhaul the Tax Code, derregulate Corporations, Banks and business and Cut taxes to the "Job Makers" in order to create a robust economy.

    He forgot to thank our vetrans for their service.

    And here I thought our legislators were mature, educated adults.

    Just curious, but does anyone know what else, if anything, was associated with that amendment. In other words, what was Schrader really after?
