cuts to vet benefits? Obama?<quoted text>
Congress is going to vote to tweak the new budget when they return in January so that cuts in veterans benefits will be taken out. Hope Obama is still happy about that.
What's funny is Obama acts like he had something to do with Congress deciding to act on their own without him.
Ryan's Committee Scrubs Doc of Claim to Protect Disabled Vets' Pensions
House Budget Committee Chairman Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) has scrubbed a document to remove a false statement about the budget deal he cut with Senate Budget Committee chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA), Breitbart News has learned.
An original talking point in the document claimed the plan’s cuts to military pensions for wounded warriors, or service members who retired as a result of disability or injury, would not be affected.
....Ryan’s committee removed the claim that wounded warriors’ pensions would not be affected by the cuts because the claim is not true, as the Washington Free Beacon documented.
Ryan’s spokesman Will Allison admitted to Breitbart News that Ryan’s team did in fact edit the document. Allison said Ryan’s staff discovered the claim was in fact incorrect and then edited the document on Tuesday, Dec. 10--two days before the House vote. But Allison would not answer when asked multiple times if Ryan and his committee staff notified House members of the significant change to that document--which may in fact have led to a decision for some House members on which way they would have voted on the bill.
looks to me like a republican signed off on those cuts and then tried to hide it from the FOXbots.
