The veterans bill, passed by the Senate 94-1, would provide tax credits for firms that hire unemployed or disabled vets. But DeMint opposed the legislation, arguing that the tax breaks won’t encourage hiring, would complicate the tax code and amount to the government picking winners and losers.
At one point, he said, “We’re pandering to different political groups with programs that have proven to be ineffective.”
So veterans are just another special interest group?

Jay-Z’s Rocawear has come out with a T-shirt emblazoned with “Occupy All Streets” to spread the news that “there is change to be made everywhere” and not just on Wall Street.
But if Occupy Atlanta and other offshoots of the Occupy Wall Street movement expect to cash in on Jay-Z’s show of support, they may be disappointed. Rocawear says it isn’t sharing any of the revenue from the T-shirt sales, according to a Business Insider report.
