Another GOP Self-Inflicted Wound

by Steve

The Senate GOP caucus actually killed a modest $21 billion veterans benefit package today because Democrats paid for it with unspent war funds for Iraq and Afghanistan, and then said it wouldn't come back to haunt them in the fall elections because voters would be more angry about Obamacare than the GOP stiffing veterans.

Really? Good luck with that GOP. You just handed another issue to the Democrats at a time when you refuse to close hedge fund and other corporate tax shelters and loopholes. So billions for the wealthy are OK, but $21 billion for veterans costs too much?

Thanks, you morons.
