In the Sunday September 16th edition of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, in their Sunday feature, CONGRESS Following the Vote, we find this little tidbit:
VETERANS (sic) JOBS CORPS Senators on Wednesday voted 84 – 8, to debate a bill launching a Veterans Job Corps at a deficit neutral cost of $1 billion over five years. A yes vote was to advance the bill promoting hiring priority for veterans and first responders and creating a variety of jobs on public lands (S 3457)
So, this vote was to allow the Senate to DEBATE the bill…not pass it, approve it or any way enact it into law. Just to let the Senators discuss it in the Senate. One of our Senators voted Yes, to allow the debate. That would be Senator Herb Kohl.
But Senator Ron Johnson voted against it. Voted against democracy…voted against allowing a bill to even be discussed in the Senate…voted against actually doing the job we sent him to Washington to perform. And exactly what does he have against our veterans?
