Senate to get a second chance to do right by veterans

One of the most important congressional votes of the year was held three months ago, though most of the political world didn’t even notice. There will be a similar vote next week, and chances are excellent that this one won’t be ignored.

In late February, Senate Democrats pushed a bill on expanded veterans’ benefits. It would have expanded VA health care access, tuition assistance, and job training, and the legislation’s sponsors, led by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Chris Coons (D-Del.), were optimistic about its chances.

Their hopes were misplaced. Despite majority support and the backing of major veterans’ organizations, Senate Republicans wouldn’t even allow a vote. A filibuster from the GOP minority killed the bill, insisting Democrats hadn’t done enough to ensure the bill was paid for – because helping veterans matters, but making sure the deficit isn’t slightly larger really matters.

“I hope all the veterans groups have witnessed all the contortions the Republicans have done to defeat this bill,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-Nev.) said at the time.“Shame on Republicans for bringing base politics into a bill to help veterans.”

That was three months ago, and because the Beltway press didn’t much seem to care about the bill, Republicans paid no price for blocking the veterans-aid bill. As Rachel noted on the show last night, however, the GOP minority will have a second bite at the apple.

It’s not altogether clear what Republicans intend to do about it.

If it’s the exact same bill as the one they killed three months ago, how exactly will Republicans explain a change of heart? For that matter, will they even have a change of heart, or will they once again filibuster the legislation?

In February, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) said the bill had “good elements,” but he was principally concerned with the “cost issue.” Sen. Richard Burr (R-N.C.) said the efforts to help veterans “cost more than our kids can afford.” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) argued against the proposal by saying,“We are $17 trillion in debt.”

All three were among the 41 GOP senators responsible for killing the bill.

But three months later, politicians seem a little more eager to stand on the side of veterans. Next week’s vote will be well worth watching.

All CNN said was that they served on charitable boards together. Ayers had certain projects he push as did others on that board.
That political meeting was not arranged buy Obama & BillAyers had not invited Obama.
They were not friends. CNN did not call them friends.
You are lying.
Republicans know they can't win by telling the truth so they lie. It's what they do. McCain and Palin were perhaps the worse when it came to lies and misleading statements about the Obama/Ayers relationship and where did it get them? No where! Just two people with big L's across their foreheads. Yet, Rethugs just can't let it go.

Heck, I even accused Obama together with Ayers of funneling funds from the foundation to Bernardine Dohrn until I looked into the accusation further and found out that it couldn't be further from the truth. The two worked in two different capacities and Ayers kept his distance from Obama to avoid conflict of interest since the board was funding some of Ayers’ own alternative school projects.

Might as well say that Arnold R. Weber, a Republican and former president of Northwestern University was Ayer's friend. Along with Stanley Ikenberry, a former president of the University of Illinois system; Ray Romero, a vice president of Ameritech; Susan Crown, a philanthropist; Handy Lindsey, the president of the Field Foundation of Illinois; and Wanda White, the executive director of the Community Workshop for Economic Development. After all, they all served on the same board with Ayers.

Correction...the majority of Republicans, not "Americans". We already know that Republicans are incapable of rational thought. Proof is in their love of Breitbart and Fauz News.
