Krupp: Paul Ryan Comes Up Short For Veterans

PLEASANT PRAIRIE, Wisconsin -- For millions of Americans Memorial Day is a time to pay respects to those who gave of themselves to the safety and service of the United States. However, Marge Krupp, the Democratic Candidate for Wisconsin's First Congressional District, is quick to remind district voters of her opponent's recent opposition to the needs of those veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. "Paul Ryan's concern for tax cuts for wealthiest in society over the needs of veterans is appalling," says Krupp. Ryan recently voted against the "New G.I. Bill" (H.R. 2642), which proposed a tax increase for those making over $500,000 a year to pay for a college education program for veterans returning from post-9/11 conflicts.

"Ryan's dogged and dangerous pursuit of tax cutting, despite his voting for the war, almost put the dreams of college for millions of returning veterans out of reach," Krupp proclaimed. The "New G.I. Bill" was proposed out of a need for essential education dollars for veterans in the face of serious cuts to college financial aid. Krupp added, "I believe that putting on a uniform for our nation comes with risks and benefits, but the promise of a college education for those who do should never be taken away."

Marge Krupp noted that despite her staunch opposition to the War in Iraq, she believes that our brave servicemen and women should have the very best our nation has to offer upon their return home.

Marge Krupp is a highly qualified Democratic candidate for Congress who will fight to end the war in Iraq, strongly support working families and work hard to ensure quality, affordable healthcare for every American. For more information, please visit her web site at
