Wilson: Concurrent Receipt Buried in Bad Bill 


Rep. Joe Wilson of South Carolina, ranking Republican on the House military personnel subcommittee, said he will not vote for a House initiative to help retirees who were unable to complete 20 years of service because of service-connected disability.  Rep. Wilson said he will not vote for HR 4213, an almost $200 billion package of tax extenders, economic stimulus measures and fixes to a variety of laws.  For Wilson, the fact that Congress has spent billions on economic stimulus, bailing out banks and businesses, giving incentives to buy cars and to make houses more energy efficient, but not provided money for the military benefits, is a mistake.  For further information or to read this article in full, please go to: http://www.armytimes.com/news/2010/05/military_disability_tax_wilson_052610w/
