Making Conservatives Cringe Since 1977

I'm not Liberal, I'm paying attention.

Who would have guessed?

Republicans are screwing over us veterans once again. S.AMDT.3007 Amends: S.CON.RES.83 Sponsor: Sen Akaka, Daniel K. [HI] (submitted 3/13/2006) (proposed 3/14/2006) AMENDMENT PURPOSE:To increase Veterans medical services funding by $1.5 billion in FY 2007 to be paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes. TEXT OF AMENDMENT AS SUBMITTED: CR S2046 STATUS: 3/14/2006: Amendment SA 3007 proposed by Senator Akaka. (consideration: CR S2078-2083, S2094-2095; text: CR S2079) 3/14/2006: Amendment SA 3007 not agreed to in Senate by Yea-Nay Vote. 46 - 54. Record Vote Number: 41. From Bob Greiger:

The kiss of death for America’s Veterans was the fact that the additional funding was to be paid for by closing corporate tax loopholes, which ensured that the GOP-dominated Senate would take care of its corporate donors before worrying about those who truly serve our nation.

The 46-54 vote was entirely down party lines, with all Democrats voting for the Veterans medical care funding and every Republican but Lincoln Chafee (R-RI) voting against it.

-How any Veteran could support these rats is beyond me. Put your money were your mouth is Republicans, Support our Troops!
