Senate Vote
Wednesday, March 12, 2014 • Posted March 12, 2014

Do you know what Ted Cruz did last week along with 41 Republican senators? He blocked a veteran’s benefits bill which would have given our vets better health care along with job training and education benefits. Ted as a member of the party of NO basically just turned his back on all our vets. Ted along with the party of NO complained the bill was too expensive. ‘Just imagine if you were a vet who did his or her duty and when the commander-in-chief told you to go fight and you lost a limb in the process of doing you duty. And now your Congressman is saying it’s just too expensive to take care of you the way you should be. Can you imagine what this does to the morale of our troops now serving their country? They now know the only thing they will get in the end from the party of NO is the shaft.What has happened to these members of Congress is, when contemplating a bill just look at its cost, or instead of deciding it it’s a good and moral thing to do.
