Cut military pay, raise government drone pay. Hussein “has their back”.
The “cut” in military pay is purely “Washington Speak.” The “cut” being talked about is to reduce the proposed active duty military pay from 1.5% to 1%. Thus there is an increase.
That is the dirty little secret about congressional arguments over “budget cuts,” Congress puts in an automatic 5% increase to the budget each year, which they never proclaim and then they say “we have to increase the budget X amount, then when conservatives say “No” to the X amount of increase over the automatic 5% increase, the Democrat/Socialists scream “conservatives are wanting to cut spending and hurt (insert name of special interest group)” when there is actually being an increase over the previous year.
You have it backwards: nobody is cutting active duty pay—it’s the DoD civilians—and only us—that are staring down the barrel of a 20% paycut.
