Saturday Speeches: Help For Vets [VIDEO]

There’s a measure of agreement today in the weekly radio and Internet addresses from President Barack Obama and the Republicans as both sides talked about putting veterans to work when they get home.

Obama urged the House to follow the Senate’s lead and do something to help them.

The Senate has voted overwhelmingly to approve legislation to award tax credits of up to $9,600 to companies that hire disabled veterans who have been job-hunting for at least half a year. The House is expected to approve the bill next week.

Obama says supporting veterans is “an American responsibility” and obligation.

For the GOP, Nevada Rep. Joe Heck, an Army reservist, called for leadership from Obama to do more for veterans and support other House-passed legislation to help them.

Heck says “we owe it to our veterans to ensure they come home to a strong economy.”
