Yup. It goes up every year. Doubling now every year. They know there is absolutely nothing we can do about it. We are old. We are used up and broken down. I FIRMLY BELIEVE IN MY HEART OF HEARTS THAT EVERY STINKING ONE OF THOSE PUKES IN CONGRESS want us to die. We die and they save their few bucks. If they simply CUT all that wasted money they ship around the world to puke nations and give to illegals and Obama’s muzzie buddies, we could balance the budget quickly. But, know. It is easier to cut a few dollars from old, dying people. And the nation is getting further and further from caring. I bump into more people now who say “well it was your choice to go into the military. You took the chance and got hurt. So sorry.” Did not use to hear that, even here in the south, but I do now. These pukes just want their free check. Too hell with those who got broken to pieces giving it to them.
‘...who say well it was your choice to go into the military. You took the chance and got hurt. So sorry.’
This is the same attitude as spitting on a Vietnam Vet soldier, just more subtle. I couldn’t believe the Republicans actually went along with this. They could have refused to sign on to this deal until it was fixed. There’s no way this money actually makes a difference in our debt. It was done with a wink and a nod by Republicans. They hate the Tea Party and conservatives. It could have been a route next election, but the Republicans are making it hard to vote for Republicans.
Heck just stopping mooch from shopping, and all those vacations, would save BILLIONS. Then there are all those phony congressional fact finding vacations we could eliminate. All the congressional perks, make them pay BC/BS for health care, not the Platinum one WE pay for, for them and their kids till they turn 26.
And not a dime should go off shore except to our Military. And you get no thanks except from fellow Vets either.
Thank you for your service and your sacrifice. THOSE WHO DON’T KEEP PROMISES TO THE MILITARY, WON’T KEEP THEM TO U!
