OUTSTANDING Republican distortion because as a Senator he voted against increase to Pentagon defense spending which is out of control but NOT against veteran benefits which you republicans wipe you hypocrite butts with.
Again I posted facts with links and you spew off Rush Limbaugh distortions.
Pres Obama has done more for veterans than the "new" republicans because in fairness the republicans BEFORE the Tea party were not the "I hate veterans " republicans.
Spin all you got....my my my.

NONE and again nice Rush Limbaugh try because it does NOT change the facts that Republicans in action, never mind empty words
HATE Veterans.
"Rather than trim from the Pentagon's budget, the GOP assembled its package of $61 billion in cuts from deep reductions to non-defense discretionary programs, including $2.6 billion in funding provided to care for America's veterans through the Veterans Administration.
Leaders of VA's largest union, the American Federation of Government Employees (AFGE), say that the reductions threaten the health care and benefits delivery services provided by VA employees."

"Republicans "Pledge" to Slash Veterans Benefits"
"And the Democrats have lived up to that duty, he said. Since they took the lead in Congress in 2006 and since President Obama was sworn into office, "we have seen the greatest increase in the VA budget since World War II," Cleland pointed out. In the past 72 months of Democratic Party leadership, the VA has seen a budget increase of 45 percent."

Obama’s return from 14-day Hawaiian vacation; DC in the low 20s...Finally after another luxury vacation while the minorities and middle class continue to suffer, Obama is going to pivot to Hispanics instead of blacks
