6 veterans' groups unite, rip shutdown: 'Get your act together'
from USA Today
Several prominent veterans' groups held a rare, joint news conference calling for an end to the government shutdown, saying tens of thousands of veterans in the federal workforce are facing increasingly difficult financial hardships as they continue to go without pay. The agencies affected by the shutdown employ at least 150,000 veterans, according to the White House Office of Management and Budget. "We ask the president and the Congress to get together, get your act together and get this situation resolved," said Regis "Rege" Riley, national commander of American Veterans, or AMVETS.
