Call to Action

Tomorrow the GI Bill for the 21st Century is coming up for a vote. Sign the petition and check out the details at GI Bill 2008.

And please, contact your senators and representatives and tell all of them that you want this bill passed. There is no earthly reason for them not to pass it!

It is unconscionable that the Rethugs, led by faux veteran John McCain, are trying to stonewall this bill and prevent its passage.

Don't let them get away with it. Get this bill passed!

Both Senators Menendez and Lautenberg are signed on.

I will send them both thank you cards OR Congratulations cards depending on what happens.....

The Senate passed this bill today. All the Democrats supported it, and only about 10 Republicans voted in favor. If this doesn't clue people in as to how little the Republcan Party values our veterans, I don't know what will. The 23% of people in this country who still approve of the job President Bush is doing should be referred for psychiatric evaluations. They've got to be psychotic.

Iowa's Senator Harkin voted for the bill but Senator Grassley voted against it. That was the results I expected. What pisses me off is McCain not even bothering to show up and vote. He then dissed Obama's lack of military service but not a word about Bush's incomplete tour in the Guard or "Other Priorities" Cheney.
