WASHINGTON (AP) -- President Barack Obama continues to take aim at unscrupulous college recruiters who target veterans and members of the military.
In his weekly Internet and radio address Saturday, Obama reiterated a series of measures he announced yesterday to protect current and former servicemen and women as they seek educational opportunities under the GI Bill. Some for-profit institutions use deceptive military-themed websites that appear to be government-run or connected to the GI Bill benefit system.
For the Republicans this week, Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan, the chairman of the House Budget Committee, criticized the Democratic-controlled Senate for not producing a budget. He says Obama has failed to lead the country and put it on a path toward a smaller debt.
