The Veteran Job Corps Act of 2012
Hire The Veteran!
The White House responds:
No veteran who fought for our nation should have to fight for a job at home, but Republicans in Washington are blocking a common sense plan to create the Veterans Jobs Corps and put tens of thousands of veterans back to work.
Working with Democrats and Republicans in Congress, the Obama Administration has already made real progress to help veterans find jobs. We passed tax credits to encourage employers to hire veterans and released new tools to connect veterans with employers. And thanks to the First Lady and Dr. Biden’s Joining Forces Initiative, more than 2,000 businesses have hired or trained more than 125,000 veterans and military spouses in the past year. But we can do more and Senate Republicans should not block legislation that includes many of their ideas and stand between veterans and good jobs protecting and preserving America.
What kind of men are they? The Rachel Maddow Show tell us about 4 Senators who wrote a “Veteran’s Bill designed to put tens of thousands of veterans back to work. But subsequently turn their backs on U.S. veterans and kill a bill designed to help them.”
