But, then again, you knew that, right?  If you need any more proof that this jackass has partisanship ahead of country, this infamous quote: "If we’re able to stop Obama on this it will be his Waterloo. It will break him," oughtta do it.

  1. Not saying I agree with Demint but he does raise a valid point. here is a less partisan write up.

  2. Yes, an asshole surrounded by Santorum.

  3. It isn't a valid point. He's saying veterans don't deserve it. He's drawing some kind of social clash where none exists. People don't begrudge veterans when they receive benefits!

  4. He is saying everybody deserves it and past programs to offer tax incentives to companies that hire veterans didn't work as designed so why do it again. And the reason why 97 Senators voted for it is exactly what you stated "People don't begrudge veterans when they receive benefits!" If Demint's assertions are correct he might have been the only one thinking about this critically.

  5. So, Anonymous, do you think the GI Bill was a bad idea?
