Veteran Affirmative Action?

As a veteran, I see no problem with the new Veterans bill, but I have heard a mouthful from people comparing it to affirmative action for veterans.  Some have said that vets don't want to be taken advantage of for a tax  credit.
Others have said that the quality of worker will drop because all employers will look at is if the new employee is eligible for the credit.  And, some question whether employers will hire someone for only long enough to get a credit and then the employer will give the vet the boot right after the vet qualifies for the credit.

Nonsense, you say?  All those scenarios may exist, but the positive outcomes of the Vets job bill far outweigh the few instances where the program could be abused, don't you think?

If not, why not?
