Jon Stewart Rips Shameless Republican Senators For Screwing Veterans

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart wonders what's wrong with our priorities and our "national shame-o-meter" when it comes to veterans benefits.
Views:

The Daily Show's Jon Stewart let the Republican Senators who blocked the veterans' benefits bill over "diplomacy-killing sanctions" with Iran that that they know full well are going absolutely nowhere.

As Stewart pointed out, there's something terribly wrong with our country's "national shame-o-meter" when John Travolta pronouncing someone's name wrong at the Oscar's has got the country worked up into a Twitter frenzy, but how the Senate behaved this week barely gets a mention in the national media.
