Huff-po headline caught your eye?
There are already 47 different job training programs running at $18billion dollars a year (link from GAO

If you want a real example of a working job program for Veterans.. take a look at one that actually has results: 100,000 Jobs Mission
18,249 Veterans Hired As of June 30, 2012
I'm proud my company takes part in this initiative and I'm proud to have hired 4 people directly through this program. You should learn to lose that talking point and stop thinking more money to government solves all problems.
