Senate Bill 2020 was a:

“Vote on a motion to waive the Budget Act in order to adopt an amendment that appropriates $500 million annually from 2006-2010 for counseling, mental health, and rehabilitation services for veterans diagnosed with mental illness, post-traumatic stress disorder, or substance abuse.” (From Project Vote Smart)

In fact, note how John McCain either voted no or didn’t vote for any of the veteran’s benefit bills even though he is a ranking member of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Here’s another one he voted against.

And even more here.
