McCain and Veterans

It’s getting some traction at least in the blogosphere, so here’s 2 good pieces on McCain’s record on veterans’ issues, from Hilzoy and The Nation. To sum it up, as Hilzoy puts it, “McCain has supported basic appropriations for vets. However, when there are two competing proposals, he generally chooses the cheaper one, and often, when only one proposal to increase benefits is available, he opposes it.”
