the house and senate are scrambling to fix this; as they thought the benefits were covered under pay our military act. Of course Bone head boehner, is blaming the pentagon saying this was covered under the first bill and the pentagon is sickening for even using the dead servicemembers like this.

anyway, I wish there was more outrage over this. Maybe if people starting getting outraged, they'd pull their heads out and end all of this.

this is totally disheartening...they paid the ulitimate sacrifice and their country can't even honor that by ensuring their families are taken care of.

also, 4 million vets will be without vet benefits by November 1st if this doest' end in the next few days as well.

SAD.
