Senate rejects bill on veterans benefits


​"Wrangling over an issue -- veterans -- that often receives bipartisan support, the legislation died on a vote of 56-41, with only two Republicans voting for it.

​"Last year, the Trump administration insisted that its regressive tax cuts were so

important, it was worth adding $1.5 trillion to the national debt to ensure their

passage. Now, the White House is warning Congress that the United States cannot

afford to add $1.6 billion to the deficit to expand health-care options for veterans."

I know where we can find that $1.6 billion with room to spare!

"The $65 billion gain is nonetheless real – rest assured of that. But only

$36 billion came from Berkshire’s operations. The remaining $29 billion

was delivered to us in December when Congress rewrote the U.S. Tax

Code."    I found the $1.6 billion with room to spare!
