McCain Takes Credit For GI Bill He Opposed
Earlier this month, House leaders struck a deal to push forward with Sen. Jim Webb's ( D-VA) GI Bill, which expanded generous educational benefits for veterans. The House deal also included a provision allowing troops to transfer the benefits to family members.

Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) was one of the most vocal opponents of Webb's bill, claiming it was too generous and would lead to a drop in military retention. Yet when the House deal was announced, McCain tried to take credit for it.

As if trying to steal credit for Webb's GI Bill wasn't bad enough, McCain yesterday skipped the Senate vote on the legislation, which passed 92-6. The only other senator not present for the vote was Ted Kennedy ( D-MA), who is battling a brain tumor.

Just a fellow news researcher. I often find it hard not to be buried in the spin. So I figured I would share some articles that wont receive any attention.
