Asking questions is fine I just find it odd that as a veteran yourself that your question would be over eligibility.
So it seems that your main argument here isn’t the much needed job training or that it wouldn’t be for all vets but the cost and that your taxes
may not equal into immediate jobs for those that are deserving.
This seems to be the only real argument in the senate as well. One billion is a drop in the bucket compared to what our government spends daily on
operations around the world and training to send our soldiers into combat.
For republicans to use cost as their argument against helping those same soldiers that are reentering civilian life that have served their country is
I suggest the reason the bill did not pass is not because of cost or that it is a bad bill but because they are serving an ulterior motive by making
this president look bad by not passing good legislation.
I know I have a right to disagree and I would like to think I fought for it with my service but the simple fact is that right is not exclusive to the
US many other countries including EU countries also afford their citizens that right as well as helping their returning soldiers and I think as US
citizens we should hold our government to the same if not better standards. Wouldn’t you agree?
