Omnibus Veterans’ Benefits Bill Now Law

I just read a recent press release from the US Senate Committee on Veterans’ Affairs about Chairman Akaka’s legislation that aims to improve housing, disability, and employment benefits of the veterans. This is definitely a good news for our retired people despite of the global economy problem that we are facing now. The OMNIBUS VETERANS’ BENEFITS BILL was signed by his Excellency, Pres. George Bush into law last October 10, 2008. Here’s an excerpt of the good news….

  1. was a dem not now

    just want to point out that this was not “Akaka’s legislation… he’s just the committee chair… and, while the bill provides good things for our deserving veterans, by the time it was passed into law, it contained hundreds of millions of pork spending as well. I’m glad the President signed the bill, but this crap of attaching meaningless spending to worthwhile legislation ($2 million for Murtha’s Museum to the Jackass?? no, you can’t make this stuff up!) is just ludicrous!
