CALLER: Listen, Sean. I just want some people in the conservative party, Republican Party to fight as hard as me and my platoon did in Afghanistan. That's all I'm asking for.
SEAN HANNITY (HOST): I appreciate, first of all, your service. I'm sorry about your injuries, they sound pretty debilitating. I know many people in your position. It alters your life, and your family's life forever. None of it is fun. And I -- I just -- we owe you a debt of gratitude. And we can't forget our vets either.
Listen. I don't like Jon Stewart, but Jon Stewart is right, on him fighting for these vets the way he has. Now, the very specific issues behind the scenes, a lot of people don't know. But anyway, there's a bill. Republicans support the bill, these burn-pit victims.
And the only reason it didn't pass this week was because the Democrats, what they put in the bill, they moved $400 billion in discretionary spending to mandatory spending and that $400 billion had nothing to do with veterans. And Democrats want to spend another $400 billion on new spending completely unrelated to veterans.
