"Graham ducks question on GI Bill, pledges only to ‘sit down’ and discuss it."

On “This Week” today, host George Stephanopolous asked Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) why neither he nor Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) has cosponsored Sen. Jim Webb’s 21st Century GI Bill, which would dramatically enhance educational benefits given to soldiers.

Graham ducked the question, refusing to answer for his and McCain’s notable absence on the issue. Graham would only declare, “Sign me up to sit down with Jim [Webb]” to discuss the legislation. Watch it:

Webb pointed out in March that “many more Republicans could vote for the bill if McCain endorsed it.” Sign a petition here.
