In word...



Why in the hell would he vote against this?

This is more of the same, talk one way and act another...
THIS IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF WHAT WE DO NOT NEED.

www.senate.gov...

To provide an additional $430,000,000 for the Department of Veteran Affairs for Medical Services for outpatient care and treatment for veterans.


Please offer me a good specific explanation why?

America first,

good line...

What does that mean? It means that over $600 million they thought they would spend they are now not spending. So where is the emergency? It doesn't exist. Why are we doing this? How can you spend more in a program in the last half of the year than the whole program was designed to spend in 12 months? And yet in three of the four programs that the Akaka amendment deals with, it does just that.



I think it had to do that this was an emergency bill and members were attaching amendments that weren't defined as emergencies. I ain't saying ol Mac was right or wrong, just trying to give you the reason you asked for.

links don't work. Go to www.senate.gov...

click on SAmdt 3462 then click on CR S3560-3563. This provides text of what was discussed on this amendment. Sorry about the link.

Ummm, it says "Country First", not America First! Which country is he talking about? Does that help answer your question?
