Does it make you real proud to be a Tennessean knowing that you elected two senators who voted to deny veterans, who served their country so unselfishly the jobs that they desperately need?
Sleep well Tennessee Republican, sleep well.

Well, I guess our senators hate the President more than they support the soldiers who put their lives on the line for us and suffer when they get home.
The latest filibuster (what is that, 65?) prevented job preferences for returning soldiers for another year. The bill was considered a lay up for bipartisan support and fell two votes short of cloture, even with republican sponsored amendments. And it was paid for.
Yes, Mr. Craig, I hope the senators sleep well, and I hope our veterans take note of their disrespect for the sake of politics.
