Maybe Franken and Klobuchar could explain to this hero why they voted to cut military pensions and allowed illegal immigrants to keep child tax credits to the tune of over $4 billion. The cuts, including benefits to disabled veterans, could have been stopped if the Democrats had allowed an amendment to be passed. Only one Democrat joined all of the Republicans in voting against this. Thanks Al and Amy for turning your backs on veterans.
