Romney Has No Specific Plan To Address Veterans Issues

President Obama announced today at Ft. Stewart in Georgia that he will sign an executive order to protect veterans, members of the military and their families from deceptive and predatory marketing practices by some for-profit higher educational institutions.

Mitt Romneyís campaign tried to get out front of the news today by issuing press releases suggesting that the president hasnít done enough for the nationís veterans. Campaign spokesperson Andrea Saul said:


ďUnder President Obama, all Americans have suffered from one of the worst job markets in recorded history ó and our nationís veterans have been among the hardest hit. With more than twelve percent of our most recent veterans struggling to find work and nearly a million veterans unemployed, itís clear that we need to do more to grow our economy and ensure that those who fight for America can find a job when they return home.Ē
