Senate Democrats killed an amendment from Sen. Kelly Ayotte that would have paid for unemployment benefits for many Americans and replaced recent cuts to veterans' pensions by closing a tax code loophole that allows illegal aliens to access the Refundable Child Tax Credit.

It is just something I read. Wish I would have saved it to post here. Who knows whether there was any truth in it or not. Anyway, I agree veterans should not have any of their benefits cut.
That's the problem with lumping different legislation together. Issues should be dealt with individually. It sounds like something the Democrats would do rejecting the restoring of veterans benefits so they could continue to make sure illegal aliens get their fraudulent tax credits.

O'bustard is a great spouter of equality, but why isn't he putting ALL federal government pensioners under the same COLA cuts as the military federal employees ? Why, out of the millions of government employees covered by pensions is he carving out this small segment ? Because like all progressives, he is blatantly anti-military and his bias eventually so arrogantly open and caustic will have consequences. The mid-term elections will be a big eye opener for these libs, even if they back out this cut later this year, active military, retired military and millions of veterans won't forget this come November.

They still can't get it right. The latest budget deal almost a month after Ryan's betrayal to veterans leaves those veteran benefit cuts in place.
So much for "we'll fix that".
