Bush Screws Soldiers Again

One of the reasons the Republicans will lose my vote to the Libertarians next election, and why I'll vote Ron Paul in the primary: Bush has never supported the troops that he sends to battle. Here these guys return from 22 months in Iraq, but earn the paltry benefits of troops who serve no more that 729 days. The 730th day of battle service qualifies vets for a little more, but these guys' order was written for just 729, and their extra days resulted from multiple "extensions", which do not count for these benefits.
