DISABLED MILITARY RETIREE RELIEF ACT OF 2009 -- (House of Representatives - June 24, 2009)

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

Mr. MARSHALL. Madam Speaker, I want to thank the chairman, the staff, and other Members for the work that has been done in order to provide this relief to the disabled veterans tax. I would like to encourage all Members and all veterans to call the failure or the inability of those who are entitled to concurrent receipt of retirement benefits and disability benefits to call this the disabled veterans tax, a term that was coined about 6 years ago. More and more veterans are using that term. And as we use at that term and get this thing labeled the way it should be, as a disabled veterans tax, I am convinced that over the years we will find the offsets that are needed in order to completely eliminate this unfair tax on disabled veterans.

Again, Mr. Chairman, I thank you. Without your due diligence here and an awful lot of work by staff, we wouldn't be able to make the inroads that we have made this time around. An awful lot of credit goes to you.
