Senate Democrats vote against allowing disabled military retirees to keep pension benefits
The Paul Ryan/Taliban Patty Murray budget is a joke. It’s not bad enough that it jacks up spending and does away with the sequester. The real crime here is that the only significant cuts in this budget are to the pensions of military retirees, including disabled ones. This passed the House with over 300 votes, so it has plenty of GOP DNA on it. But today some Republicans tried to fix the problem by adding an ammemdnet to the budget that would allow retired veterans keep the pension benefits they were originally promised. It was a simple idea. In order to pay for the military pensions, Pete Sessions wanted to instead eliminate an estimated $4.2 billion in annual spending by reining in an IRS credit that illegal immigrants have claimed. So what happens? All Democrats (except one vulnerable one) voted for the illegals instead of the military veterans. These piece of shit Democrats voted to give illegal immigrats benfits, but not our military veterans:

I hope people in the states that have Senate elections remember this as much as they do ObamaCARE when they got to the polls next Fall. There is absolutely no justification of this.
