Posted on 01/03/2014 1:53:26 PM PST by ColdOne
A new bill offered in the House of Representatives by Rep. Darrell Issa (R., Calif.) would replace pension cuts to military retirees by ending the U.S. Postal Services (USPS) delivery of Saturday mail.
The proposal would save an estimated $17 billion over 10 years and eliminate a controversial provision in the budget deal passed last month that hit military retirees with a 1 percent decrease in their annual cost-of-living adjustments (COLA). The budget agreement did not cut pensions for federal civilian retirees.
This legislation will restore cost-of-living adjustments for our military retirees and not only replace the savings but nearly triple themsaving $17 billion over 10 years according to conservative USPS estimates, said Issa, chairman of the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee.
This common sense reform will help restore the cash-strapped Postal Service to long-term solvency and is supported by the president and key congressional leaders in both chambers, he said. President Barack Obama recommended scrapping Saturday mail in his budget proposal last year.

This new vote shouldn’t matter. The A** Holes who voted to screw our Vets need to be voted out. They betrayed the Folks who have been covering their butts for Centuries.
Oh he does not have to do that, ryan SAID to was an inadvertent mistake and that it will be correct. Well he SAID that after he saw it in the bill but did NOTHING to corrected at that time.
Would he lie to correct himself after he lied and did NOTHING to correct it in the first place?
This is the second so called promise that our lying elected crooks have made and then did what they said they would not do.
Well ryan has the dumb-o-crats praising him so I guess he does not care about the vets.
I think we need to change our optics...
How often does this happen? One side “gives”... The other side “gives”... They call it negotiating... Then later, BOTH sides put it back tucked nicely inside something else...
Its US against THEM... PERIOD!
This is why we will NEVER control spending...
I’m sure it will be as effective and timely as his oversight “efforts”... in other words, all for show.
