As a college student and veteran, I know how important education benefits are to our service men and women returning home from overseas. Unfortunately, Sen. McCain is failing to show leadership on this issue. Veterans deserve to be represented by leaders who will recognize their sacrifice to our nation.
The cost of attending college has increased at a much faster rate than what Congress has authorized for annual increases for education benefits in the past. A large coalition of bipartisan legislators has proposed a reasonable increase for the GI Bill to close this gap.
This increase will pay for itself in the long run by creating more educated workers who can support themselves and their families.
