A Republican World – ‘285,000 Veterans Are Going Without Unemployment Compensation’
Oh by the way, Dick Cheney, John McCain and the Republican Neo Cons want to send you to Iraq.
But pay you long term unemployment benefits?
Those have to be ‘paid for’ and the Republicans don’t like the way Democrats are paying for them.
Now……..why are you voting Republican again?
‘By the end of June, an estimated 285,000 veterans will be going without long-term unemployment benefits because Congress allowed the program to expire, according to an analysis by the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities (CBPP)’.
‘Senators reached a deal to extend those benefits and pay them retroactively to everyone who had been kicked out of the program earlier this year, but Republicans blocked its passage over objections to procedural rules’.
