This from the Washington Post: "Shortly after passing a suspension of the limit on federal borrowing Wednesday, the Senate voted 95-3 to pass a bill restoring military retiree benefits that were cut last year, choosing to adopt the House's solution of extending automatic cuts to Medicare to accompany the pension increase."
|Senator Lindsey Graham|
Senator Graham came on Hugh Hewitt's show Tuesday night to tell Hugh and the listeners that they were working on a fix, and was sure they could get it done. Then after Lindsey Graham went back into the senate chambers, after about a half an hour, Lindsey called Hugh back with breaking news that it was 99% certain the fix to restore the COLA would happen and a vote on it would happen the next day. Senator Graham kept his word as the senate in a 95-3 vote, repealed the COLA cut. Senator Graham came on Hugh's show last night to tell Hugh the good news thank him personally for his tenaciousness in spuring the congress to act.
God Bless Hugh Hewitt and God Bless all the veterans and those serving in the military now.
