Killing Vets wasn't enough
September 19, 20012
Senate Republicans Kill Veterans' Jobs Bill
The bill was fully paid for and entirely bipartisan
- 40 of 45 Republicans voted against the bill
- It was defeated by 58-40 vote
- 60 votes was needed to pass
It would have lowered unemployment among military veterans, giving grants to federal, state, and local agencies, to hire veterans- giving priority to those who served on or after 9/11.
ARE YOU OUTRAGED YET?
STILL VOTING REPUBLICAN?
