Intelligence Report By Lyric Wallwork Winik Sunday, July 21, 2002
Parade Magazine
In this week's "Intelligence Report," Lyric Wallwork Winik reports on how
the Bush Administration is losing face with war veterans because it supports
the policy of deducting disability benefits from military retirees' pay.
Here's more on the bills Congress has passed to reverse the Bush policy:


 

There are two versions of the bill: one proposed by the House of
Representatives and one proposed by the Senate. In the House version of the
bill, veterans who are 60 percent or more disabled would receive their full
retirement pay by 2007. The Senate version is quite similar; the major
difference being that it would include all veterans, not just those who are
disabled.


 

President Bush is threatening to veto the bill if Congress passes either
version.
