Democratic Legislators Challenge Bush

Congressional Democrats are challenging President Bush by approving a 3.5% raise under threat it faces a veto due to the high amount. Bush wants a 3% raise. The new legislation protects veterans in several ways; it provides free medical care for three years after leaving service for those who have been wounded, creates a common assessment system to evaluate disability claims, and makes it difficult for the military to deny mental health problems on grounds of pre-existing conditions.

Perhaps, Michael Moore might wish to make a film about how the military and Veterans Affairs Department under Bush have been consistently screwing our veterans and those wounded in combat.
