"As defined by GOP leaders, non-security spending includes all discretionary spending not for defense, homeland security, veterans and military construction."
That is the only reference to "veterans" in the whole article and clearly denotes that veterans are exempted from cuts to non-security spending and discretionary spending. No where did I see a single thing that said that veterans would suffer cuts, other than the title at the top.
Be sure to work hard and get lots of overtime. People on welfare want more steaks and free upgrades to smart phones with unlimited data packages.
