McCain Hates the Troops, Lies About It

He claimed credit for the passage of the new G.I. Bill:

I'm happy to tell you that we probably agreed to an increase in educational benefits for our veterans that not only gives them increase in their educational benefits, but if they stay in for a certain period of time than they can transfer those educational benefits to their spouses and or children. That's a very important aspect I think of incentivizing people of staying in the military.

But this was a bill he didn't vote for and, in fact, actively opposed.

Another in a great line of Republicans who are more than willing to use the troops as a political props without actually supporting them when push comes to shove. Shameful.
