    Democrats Playing Politics With Veterans Funding Bill?

    EXCERPT

    (CNSNews.com) - Congressional Democrats are stalling a veterans funding bill, and Republicans want the nation to know about it, as Veterans Day draws near.

    The House overwhelmingly (409-2) passed the 2008 Military Construction and Veterans Affairs Appropriations Act, which funds veterans' health care and housing initiatives, on June 15, 2007.

    The Senate then passed its own version of the bill and named negotiators to a House-Senate conference committee on September 6. But House Democrats have not yet appointed their conferees, despite Republican appeals to get going.
