No to Veterans. Yes to ILLEGAL aliens

Many fought and were maimed fighting fto defend our freedom but their COL increase is going to ILLEGAL aliens with no SS number.

 

snip-

Senate Democrats on Thursday blocked a Republican attempt to restore military pensions cut in last month’s budget deal, denying a vote that would save up to $20 billion by closing a loophole that allows tax refunds to go to illegal aliens.

Sen. Barbara Boxer (D., Calif.) called an effort by Sen. Kelly Ayotte (R., N.H.) to repeal the military retiree cuts “fiddling while Rome burns.”

Majority Leader Harry Reid (D., Nev.) “filled the amendment tree” on Thursday, ending debate and blocking any Republican amendments to a bill to extend unemployment insurance (UI) benefits.

Among them was Ayotte’s measure, which would repeal cuts to military pensions by ending a loophole in the tax code that allows illegal immigrants to receive the Additional Child Tax Credit. Her attempt to get a vote failed 42-54, with only one Democrat, Sen. Joe Manchin (W.Va.), voting with Republicans.

 

Ayotte offered her plan, the “Keeping Our Promise to Our Military Heroes Act’’ (S. 1869), as an amendment to the UI bill. The measure would require a Social Security number in order for an individual to receive the Additional Child Tax Credit. Ayotte’s office said the bill would save approximately $20 billion over 10 years.

If you include those who died in Iraq and Vietnam you are totally wrong. That defending freedom attitude you all have is proof of a deficient and orchestrated education system. Just because it became widespread propaganda it does not make it fact.

Above is how you ridicule the government for allowing 4 to die at Benghazi and not one word about defending freedom!!!!! Fruit loops like you are who the propagandists rely on to spread their rubbish. You should have more sense than that. Pray to god. That might help.
