Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., blocked a last-ditch effort by Republicans Thursday to restore full military pensions. Their proposal would have been paid for by denying tax credits to undocumented immigrants.

Pensions to retired and disabled veterans were cut last month in a budget compromise hammered out by Sen. Patty Murray, D-Wa., and Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wisc., according to the Washington Free Beacon.

Illegals, who cheat every year to get their Earned Income Credit refunds, over our military retirees??? Fox News, where are you? The military-hating Democrats and their RINO wannabes should be thrown out of office for this Of course, their media lap dogs will never publicize this newest outrage.

Yet another blatant move by Dirty Harry. He needs to get “lost” in some desert.

Yeah, but Sharron Angle was a bat-crazy lady and the RINO establishment told us she couldn’t win. Thanks RINOs and Nevada for putting Reid back in the Senate. I have more respect for maggots than Reid.

We always knew the Democrats felt that way, but now we know the Republican Party values our country’s illegal aliens more than they value our veterans.

This is a one-sided War being waged against Decency, openly, nakedly, brazenly.

I have more respect for Dennis Rodman than Harry Reid. Maggots just aren’t disgusting enough for the comparison.

“Their proposal would have been paid for by denying tax credits to undocumented immigrants. “

And we all know that just wouldn’t be “fair”.

Is that list of R votes for real? Where did you get it?

Military pension loses to illegal aliens, according to NKP_Vet. I’m on the road and cannot check his assertion, but I’m accepting it as true unless I’m advised otherwise.

FReep Mail me if you want on, or off, this Wiscosnin interest ping list (Johnson).

Anyone who wants to alert the Wisconsin ping list is welcome to copy and paste it from my FR Home Page. Thanks.

It all started with ryan’s stabbing in the back intervertent mistake.

This lying back stabber is not even a good liarb but a least, four the next month, the dumb-o-crats best friend.

When you crawl in the sewer you can expect to be covered with slime.

These people who were elected to the Senate by their lies should be made to pay back every cent of their salaries and benefits while being 86’d immediately from the Senate.

“Yeah, but Sharron Angle was a bat-crazy lady and the RINO establishment told us she couldn’t win.”

Unfortunately for once, they were correct. When Angle opened her mouth, crazy $hit came out and she lost all on her own. If you don’t believe that, please explain why Harry Reid’s son lost in a landslide to his Republican opponent. Same RAT machine was running both campaigns. Nevada was looking for change, but Angle offered nonsense! Just like Akin, Angle was a State Legislator from a part of the state where here nutty stuff didn’t matter, but when she had to appeal to the entire state, she came up craps. Several of her GOP “legislative colleagues” found her so bad that they actually announced that they were going to vote for Reid.
