Source, ABC News.....Yesterday, Republicans blocked the veterans bill from moving on a procedural vote, which needed 60 votes....The final tally was 56-41.....Republicans and Democrats normally agree on the need to enhance benefits for the nation's 22 million veterans and their families, but Republican senators wanted to lower the amount of spending on the bill.....The GOP senators also wanted to include a measure that would have imposed new sanctions on Iran, which President Obama has warned against doing at this time......http://abcnews.go.com/blogs/politics/2014/02/senate-gop-blocks-veterans-benefits-bill/

THIS is a prime example of why I'll continue to believe the GOP hates the president much more than they love their country. The military personnel are their own constituents and consistently vote Republican. How could the GOP justify not supporting something that would help them ?

This is getting to be a pattern, don't forget 20% of military use food stamps and they cut that too.

Right but we can still afford to send billions of dollars to countries that hate us. Makes sense to me!

Best Answer

The amount of foreign aid we send out is like 1/10 of the NASA budget...less than .01% of the military budget.

We should fire all setting senators and house members. Everyone should not be elected again, but we know that will not happen

Best Answer

Not unless we could vote for other states politicians

Best Answer

Why fire all senators?...All 56 Democratic Senators voted FOR the vets benefits bill; while all 41 Republicans voted AGAINST it....Shouldn't we "fire" all the Republicans?.....Shouldn't all Republicans in Congress be defeated this November?

Best Answer

I guess we should know what other bills were attached to this bill. It is very odd that all dems voted for and all repub voted against. Each bill should be able to stand on its own without all the pork.
