This bill protects only 7 of the 52 states. Do the other veterans not deserve to finish what was first granted them? Many have fought this war on terror and given their life in our nations defense, now we give up our education because our nation has decided we don't deserve to finish while they sit back with thick pockets. We were willing to give up our life and all we ask is to finish our education.

Last time I counted there were only 50 states. Did we admit some more recently? Or is Michael Welch providing us with proof that veteran education benefits are just a waste of money? Looks that way from here.

@Michael Welch

52 states? Are you trying to include Puerto Rico. PR isn't a state yet and it may not become one, probably an independent country or an association of the US.

Go live in China where economic intolerance is accepted.

Yes this bill only protects 7 states, why because those are the 7 states where veterans are going to lose money due to the changes in the Post 911 gi bill. In most of the other states veterans will either see no change or actually recieve more money. Vote Yes.
