"[John McCain] is fine voting for 600 billion dollars to send these people off, the least we can do is give them a chance at a first-class future when they get home. The taxpayers of America paid for every penny of John McCain's education -- and they paid for every penny of my education. The least we can do is to give these people the chance at a first-class future."
