House Budget Committee http://news.stlpublicradio.org en McCaskill: Ryan budget would cut veteran aid http://news.stlpublicradio.org/post/mccaskill-ryan-budget-would-cut-veteran-aid <p>Missouri Sen. Claire McCaskill says the budget proposal of House Republican Paul Ryan would only hurt veterans and help the wealthy.&nbsp;</p><p>Speaking with veterans Sunday at Soldiers&rsquo; Memorial Military Museum downtown, McCaskill called the proposal a &ldquo;non-starter.&rdquo;&nbsp;</p><p>&ldquo;The Ryan budget calls for a 33 percent cut in mandatory domestic spending,&quot; McCaskill said. &quot;Mandatory domestic spending includes veterans. Now that is the same budget that gives an additional six-figure tax cut for multi-millionaires.&quot;&nbsp;</p> Mon, 26 Mar 2012 01:10:01 +0000 Joseph Leahy 3348 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org McCaskill: Ryan budget would cut veteran aid
