Veterans Day

Nov 14, 2011

Friday is Veterans Day. President Obama is pledging to help post 9-11 veterans get jobs. Official unemployment in the U.S. is 9.1%. For veterans it is 12.1%.

How is Obama planning to help veterans? More tax breaks for corporations.

Yeah, that should help. It will help veterans as much as bailing out the banks got everybody’s jobs and homes back. Their answer to everything is to give more money to wealthy people, while the rest of us go broke!
