Democrats criticize Boozman for opposing veterans jobs bill

Posted: Updated:

Senate Democrats harshly criticized U.S. Sen. John Boozman, R-Ark., on Thursday for reversing course on legislation they say would have helped unemployed veterans find work.

Democrats thought Boozman was on board after they added several Republican initiatives to the bill, but he joined the majority of Republicans in opposition.

U.S. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., has also come under fire for statements he made Thursday on MSNBC's Morning Joe program defending his party's action.
