Senate Bill 1315 Approved

It turns out that the moment of truth of the Veteran’s Benefits Enhancement Act (S. 1315) ended up pretty good. The United States Senate has approved the verteran’s benefits law benefiting more than 18,000 Filipino war veterans both in Philippines and Washington.

Since the S. 1315 bill passed the US Senate, it will now move to the US Congress for debate and floor vote. Once the proposed law passes the muster, it will then go the President George W. Bush for his signature.

The approval of this bill will benefit Filipino war veterans of World War II residing in the US and in the Philippines to receive monthly pension and other benefits from the US.

While s1315 garnered an impressive legislative victory of 96 to 1 a tougher fight in the US House of Congress is in the offing. We need to get 281 votes, which represent 2/3rds majority of the 435-Member US House of Representatives and with Gloria Arroyo’s greed may derail the cause of the veterans. Once again through sleigh of hand like a black wizard concocted an executive order to sell VMMC or the Veterans Memorial Medical Center to private developers. A hospital that was built and donated by the US Government to the Filipino Veterans with stipulations that it cannot be sold or alienated, but La Gloria in all her greed and callousness will by her deluded power trip will not respect such. Help stop the sale of VMMC….. this is a direct assault to the aging veterans that also sabotage the effort of the FilAm community’s lobbying effort.
