Congress considering new 'tax' on troops for GI Bill

A proposal in Congress would impose a new $2,400 fee on troops who want to sign up to get the GI Bill after discharge.

The idea is being considered by the House Veterans Affairs Committee next Wednesday at a hearing.

The nation’s veterans groups appear to be steaming about the proposed change.

“We are still a nation at war. We have troops actively engaged in Iraq, in Afghanistan, and now in Syria,” said leader of Veterans of Foreign Wars, Brian Duffy, in an issued statement.
