Sen Gillibrand: What The Hell?
Democrat US Senator Kirsten Gillbrand is more than slightly annoyed today about a big veterans issue. Gillibrand says, Pennsylvania Republican US Senator Pat Toomey blocked a vote on the Pact Act, to help veterans suffering from sicknesses caused by exposure to burn pits. Gillibrand says, last month the bill passed in the US Senate 84-14, and nothing in it has changed. Gillibrand is perplexed. Gillibrand said the following this morning in Washington DC: "This is the worst form of over-politicization I've ever seen. We had the votes, we had strong bipartisan support for this bill, and at the 11th hour, Senator Toomey decides that he wants to re-write the bill, change the rules, and tank it. What the hell? How does this happen? How do you change your mind right when you're about to pass a law that's going to save lives?"
