Because of Congress, some vets may go hungry on this Veterans Day

Today is Veterans Day in the US - a national holiday set aside each year to honor those who have served our country in armed service.

Sadly, however, many low-income vets may go hungry on this holiday due to Congress's recent cuts in SNAP benefits (formerly called food stamps).

This is how Congress chooses to thank the brave men and women who risked life and limb for us, many of whom have been wounded or otherwise traumatized in service to this country.

It is nothing short of shameful. And it is nothing short of cruel.
