A U.S. senator from Kansas is using veterans as a tool to try and fix the situation in congress.
The House has rejected a move by democrats aimed at forcing a vote on whether to immediately reopen the Government without restrictions to President Barack Obama’s Health Care Law.
The Democratic run senate has already approved such legislation.
U.S. Senator Jerry Moran spoke on the senate floor saying elected officials in Washington can learn about leadership from our nation’s veterans.
Senator Moran met with veterans who were allowed to visit the World War II Memorial in Washington.
More than 100 veterans from Kansas, Missouri and the Chicago area came to the site and representatives from the national park service moved the barricades.
The visits were arranged as part of an “Honor Flight” program.
