Veterans Of Foreign Wars Slams Bachmann's Proposed Benefit Cuts


The release also says that Eubank is a retired Marine and combat veteran of the Vietnam War.

Memo to Bachmann: Before you even think about proposing to limit veterans' benefits, you might want to Google the words "Bonus Army." Hint: It was one of many events that brought about the landslide defeat of the Republican Party in 1932.

(Hmm, then again, Bachmann does seem to think that the Hoover administration's actions -- such as something she called the "Hoot-Smalley" tariff -- were done by Franklin Roosevelt.)
