Heller Statement on Troop Funding/ G.I. Bill
Today U.S. Congressman Dean Heller (R-NV) made the following statement on today's vote on H.R. 2642 - Iraq/Afghanistan Supplemental Appropriations bill which would fund our troops and expand the G.I. Bill.
"This bill cuts wasteful pork spending and removed tax increases while providing our veterans and military with the support they deserve. Our military men and women in the field will receive needed resources into next year without politically-motivated restrictions, and our veterans will receive expanded G.I Bill benefits without job-killing tax hikes. It's amazing what can be accomplished when Republicans and Democrats work together and place our country's armed forces and veterans ahead of politics," said Heller.
