Democrats Vote to Cut Veterans’ Pensions to Pay for Illegal Immigrants | American Overlook

American Overlook

 

Democrats continue to fight for the rights of illegal immigrants, but what about the promises this country made to our nation’s heroes?

On Dec. 17, Senate Democrats blocked an amendment to the new budget bill that would allow veterans to receive the pensions they were promised.

Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) has led the unsuccessful fight against veterans’ pension cuts and utilized a last-minute tactic yesterday, which failed to reverse the $6 billion that will be cut over the next 10 years.

Sessions argued that instead of cutting soldiers’ pensions, the federal government should curb $4.2 billion in credit from the Internal Revenue Service that illegal immigrants are “entitled to.”
