  2. Sounds like they included enough goodies to please everyone in the Senate. Kind of a "give me mine and I'll give you yours" deal.

    With that said though, the Bush administration has consistently tried to limit spending on veterans. Remember the VA director who got fired for warning that they didn't have enough money to get through the year, and replaced by a guy who assured everyone there was plenty? And then Congress had to pass an emergency spending bill later, to get them through?

    It's enough to puke a maggot off a gut wagon.:eek:wned2:
    One would think our fearless leader would think more of those he sends to war and at least share some of the big business wealth with those that make it all possible,our vets.
