Needless to say Jim DeMint wasn’t in the military

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?
