GOP hurts veterans out of spite

leave a comment »

Heather Cox Richardson has a good post, from which I’ll quote just a paragraph (though the entire post is well worth reading:

Tonight, Senate Republicans unexpectedly killed the Promise to Address Comprehensive Toxics (PACT) Act, which would have provided medical benefits for veterans exposed to burn pits and other toxins during their military service. The bill passed the Senate by a vote of 84 to 14 in June and had been sent back to that body for a procedural cleanup after the House passed it with the expectation that it would repass easily. Tonight’s vote is being widely interpreted as revenge for the resurrection of the reconciliation package.

As Richardson notes:

Attacking our veterans out of spite might not be a winning move
