Unfortunately, this common sense, family-friendly effort today fell victim to politics. Make no mistake, the Republican party knows that our military recruitment is suffering, that our troops are stretched thin, and that families at home miss their loved ones. All of America knows that. MORE from Washington State's champion for veterans.
As Jim Hightower explains it, is that “the wealthiest 1 percent of Americans possess more net worth today than the bottom 90 percent of us combined. Worse, these privileged few and their political henchmen have structured a new economic ‘normal’ of long-term joblessness, low wages, no benefits or worker rights, miserly public services, and a steadily widening chasm between the rich and the rest of us.” We must restore sanity to this nation.
