About 10,000 vets of the Iran war who re-enlisted when the country needed them and were given bonuses by recruiters are now getting bills and wages garnished because the RECRUITERS abused the system. So effed up, yet another promise to vets being broken. Obama could pass an executive order today laying this to rest, it is something he DOES have the constitutional power to make right.

CONGRESS has the power and should do something first. IF they can't or don't then the president should step in.

Its kind of tough when congress is out of session until after the election. The point was to apply immediate relief as wages were being garnished, so by the link you posted to me, it looks like a temporary solution is in place to stop that until July anyways.

1. Can you find Iran on a map? Hint: It borders Iraq where we did fight a war. 2. How exactly do you garnish bills? Wouldn't that be a good thing? This was a real issue and still facts elude the deranged. (Pentagon shut that down 10-26)

A former senior government executive at the center of the General Services Administration’s Las Vegas conference scandal pleaded guilty to fraud Tuesday for making false expense claims.
Jeffrey E. Neely, a one-time acting regional administrator for GSA, acknowledged in federal court in San Francisco that he submitted a claim for casino lodging that he knew was not for official business.
The former official also admitted that he obstructed justice by submitting false documents and certifying them as true during GSA’s investigation, and that he failed to claim annual leave on certain dates, resulting in agency losses that exceeded $5,000.
Neely, 59, of Gardnerville, Nev., faces up to five years in prison and a maximum fine of $250,000 at his scheduled sentencing June 30. He agreed to pay $8,000 in restitution as part of the plea.
Details of the lavish Las Vegas conference surfaced in a 2012 inspector general’s probe that The Washington Post first reported. The review found that Neely organized a GSA training event that cost $800,000 for 300 employees, with activities that included a $75,000 bicycle-building exercise.

This is just a recurring problem that as plague the US government far too long, just look at the VA right now, they still do most of there work on paper when they could save time and money if they kept that information in a computer database. :/

It just goes to show you that programs like the Wounded Warrior Project exist because they need to. Also it's extremely ironic when we are #1 in Military strength but can't even protect our own veterans when they come back to their homes. Liberal or Conservative this should not be a issue, and should be something we could all agree on.

If you are going to confiscate my wealth and time without limit to finance a corrupt system where even the voting process is not whole, how is that not slavery? And before you start throwing that t-word around, you should remember that's it is big government liberals that are eroding my family's freedom on a daily basis.

Not that I expect you to understand a syllable of what I just wrote, because you have the brain of an insect.

Firstly, I could care less about you're money.
Secondly, how are we limiting your families freedoms? By giving rights to Gays? By preventing monopolies?(which have not worked, btw) Or are we "preventing" Christians from practicing, which is not in our agenda, by the way. We can't just teach religion in public schools because it's as bad as having a Muslim themed classroom. It's not like we're barging into churches and shouting "Allahu Akbar" or something like that, is it?
Thirdly, before you start throwing that s-word around, you should remember that it's a big trick preachers at your church are playing, lying to you as ever as they take your donations and keep it for themselves, whilst claiming they give it to the poor. Don't believe me? I know you're opposition to transgender rights, so if you are really up against child predators, don't leave your kids with a priest! My best advice. Because just like Hillary Clinton, they're in power! And if you're in power, you can get away with a bunch of crap, mate!

Lastly, you're right. We do have brains of insects. Once one of us buzzes out for help, the rest of us come stinging right at you. Ouch! I like insects anyway. They're important organisms for the earth to survive, just like liberals are important for America to survive! ^_^

I'm not proving anything, you are. You are proving what an idiot you are. It's not my job to school idiots like you, especially when you are suffering from a mental disease, an intellectual cancer called Post Modern Liberalism.

I say we are being made into slaves, clearly an economic matter. You come back with social issues, gays, transgenders, pedophile priests etc... because you think with your genitalia. That is most important to you. Your tiny insect brains cannot overcome your reproductive organs, which is also why you state preposterous things like somehow equating Christians with Muslims.

You understand nothing. You prove it every time you post. May God have mercy on your soul, because I won't. This conversation has ended.

You are referring to The Homeless Women Veterans and Homeless Veterans with Children Act of 2010. It sounded great, and who could not be in favor of it? These things also need to be funded, although I'm not sure this would have been the hill I would have chosen to die on in the battle for fiscal responsibility. You label all republicans for this failure when it really came down to Coburn who was a budget hawk. He was seeking to have it properly funded. Coburn was fantastic at exposing government waste, but I agree this was not his finest hour. It is however nothing but hyperbole to paint all republicans as being anti-vet over that issue. Even the websites you cite are hyperbolic by nature, it shows in their names. A serious question for you, since we have had some mutual respect to this point, have you tried looking for why this was blocked from a more neutral source?

It did sound great, you're right. I support services to veterans. But why were so many of your party (not saying you specifically) voting against it? Now, did I say "all republicans"?
Sorry if I'm getting to pissy in this political debate. I've been in a bad mood lately, and it's not going well :(

I did some research on it, I really only found the one named, Tom Coburn, yet headlines in the articles read "republicans" just like your meme. That is why I got a little picky on how you use it, editors with an agenda try to attach all to the one. I don't believe all democrats are corrupt like Hillary and her staff, which is why you will notice I shy away from that generalization. There are some on the left on this site who I respect and I hold a good opinion of and I will not lump them in with her unless they choose to be. Seemingly innocuous words are often used to sway out thinking which is why I am equally as outspoken about our mainstream media. I did an experiment during the 2 conventions this year. I only watched "the blaze" and cnn. Both of these channels lean in opposite directions. I promise you if you did that for 2 weeks it would be a real eye opener for you as to how the media seeks to manipulate. While certainly Fox has a right lean to it, they give a lot of floor to the other points of view which is more than I can say for other outlets, and when they are showing the right lean they are overt about it.
