Harry Reid calls death benefit bill "moot"

The American people are pissed that A) Death Benefits were yanked and B) Obama was OK with letting a private company ensure Americas promise to these men and women be upheld.

The house voted and passed a bill to continue those payments, Reid didn't bring it up to a vote in the senate because Obama had taken care of it.

Today a Democrat in the senate begged Reid to allow the vote, Reid caved but called it moot.

Obama has now signed it.

Ridiculous that Reid thinks it is OK to allow someone else to cover your end of a promise.

Sad thing is, it isn't that much different from some Americans allowing the government to pay for them to have children. A lot of people don't mind the government to cover their end of the deal of providing for their own children.

....And this is relevant to death benefits that a soldier worked and died for how?
