The Senate paves the way for a new tax credit for companies who hire our unemployed Veterans.
FOX News Radio's Kirstin McNary reports from Washington:
A rare show of unity. The Senate green-lighting tax credits for companies hiring unemployed Veterans; 95 to 0.
Panetta: "These are men and women with extraordinary skill, proven leadership. And yet the unemployment rate for Veterans who have served since 9/11 now stands at 12.1 percent. That's unacceptable."
Defense Secretary Leon Panetta. The bill also repealing a law requiring the Government to hold back 3% of its payments to contractors.
