WASHINGTON, D.C. - Rep. Cheri Bustos calls for bipartisan support to help military retirees.
Bustos gave a speech on the House floor Friday morning. She says it's common sense to help the men and women who've fought to protect our country.
"[We have] to ensure our military retirees get the benefits they have earned and deserve" Bustos said.
Bustos said last week she supports the Military Retirement Restoration Act, which would repeal the Cost of Living Adjustments to military retirees by closing tax loopholes for offshore corporations.
Long-term unemployment benefits ended on Dec. 28.
