The PACT Act would have expanded health care and benefits to veterans who have endured physical suffering from their exposure to unsafe practices, like “burn pits,” while serving our country.
The bill originally passed through the Senate 84-14. Republican senators Thom Tillis, Rand Paul, Mike Rounds, Richard Burr, John Thune, Pat Toomey, James Lankford, Mitt Romney, Cynthia Lummis, Richard Shelby, Tommy Tuberville, Mike Lee, James Risch, and the appropriately named Mike Crapo voted against veterans for pretend budgetary reasons.
Then 25 Republican senators withdrew their vote and killed the bill. Bastards.
Which explains why Manchin withdrew his objections;he knew his friends were opposing it!
I heard it failed and Jon Stewart did an excellent rant outside the building surrounded by supporters and veterans.
Nope - PACT act failed.
Jon is PISSED...the rest of the country should ALSO BE PISSED...VOTE THEM OUT...but they won't because they are in a CULT...they are FUCKING ZOMBIES.
