Skip to comments.A Terrible “Deal” In Which Only Career Military Are Called Upon To Sacrifice
Posted on 01/14/2014 5:26:49 PM PST by Jeff Chandler
Incredibly, the House GOP has just agreed that the only group deserving budget punishment in the new spending deal is the career military. It is an obscene deal, one made worse by a patently cynical attempt to hide the blow to the military by restoring cuts to the pensions of wounded veterans. A vote for this betrayal of the military will haunt every Republican who supports it.
When the first outlines of the budget deal emerged late last tear, I counseled caution as the final details could change.

Who besides the military had to take a cut? Anyone?
Anyone who voted for this deserves to be voted out of office. I don’t care who they are.
We must NEVER, EVER forget this despicable act of betrayal by Paul Ryan. The GOPe will do their best to “rehabilitate” Ryan, but just as Rubio revealed his true colors with Amnesty betrayal, so Ryan has revealed his true colors with this stab in the backs of our veterans.
Let’s make sure we NEVER forget the Paul Ryan and Marco Rubio traitorous acts.
Explain to me again why anyone would enlist while these asswads are in office.
I think that in this day and age we all need to make sacrifices. That’s why I support building altars on Capitol Hill and near the state capitols and sacrificing politicians until the situation improves.
Active Duty/Retiree ping.
Its more than just cuts in benefits and pay. We were better off when all of America had to sacrifice along with our troops. Plus Americans might be less eager to go to war and more demanding of decisive wins.
I intend to send money to primary any republican who voted for this attack on our veterans.
voted out? how about tar and feathers
The RINOs plan for winning seems to be bleeding all over the lefties.
He’s pushing people out of the military and by messing with benefits, he’s telling people thinking of joining to forget it because you’ll get screwed.
His hates the military and wants it gone. He promised the most transparent administration, and this goal of his is very obvious.
They are very good at indirectly making things happen by screwing people.
Amen! I remind Republicans I meet about this even if is not the subject of conversation. Ryan and Rubio have been added to my get-rid list.
I think the GOP has yet to realize the error they committed by allowing this travesty. If they fully realized what they had done, they would have scrambled to remove the pension cuts from the omnibus appropriations bill. They haven't.
There is a certain amount of worship of Paul Ryan by feckless House GOP members, and they will do almost anything he says.
If the GOP loses a large number of House seats, or fails to re-take the Senate, the political chattering classes will discuss the betrayal of our military men and women, and suddenly the high paid geniuses will announce the to the political world that this was the greatest blunder in 50 years.
I did 20 years, but I told my son not to even consider it. These ass hats are not worth putting your life on the line for. F these ass wads. Good choice of words on your part.
nope, freepers would rather defeat pubs than defeat rats....
they end up electing even more rats...
My DoD contract ended last May. The customer left my whole project team without income through Oct 1st. 5 1/2 months. Many simply left the company. I burned through 500 hours of vacation accrued over the last 20 years. Even after some funds were restored in October, it’s a shoe string operation. I’m buying disk drives out of my own pocket as the approval times are now weeks for minor items. Still not sure we’re going to remain in business. The two managers above me decided to leave. A bit like have the XO and CO depart the vessel in the middle of the ocean with a few JOs and no crew left to operate.
My dad did 27 years in the Navy. I opted for a good education so I could contribute by building and delivering the tools to the troops. I saw the rot underway and decided against being part of it. The rot filtered down from the politicians to the PC senior officers who valued career over country.
I knew the GOP would find a way to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory in November. Next up “ Comprehensive Immigration Reform” AKA AMNESTY....
These two GOPe idiots or traitors have been compelled into liberal crimes and to take the fall for democrats when things go wrong.
What a bunch of hissy little girls. Rove et al ARE the embarassment.
Show me a Republican. Not Democrat-light. A REPUBLICAN.
I mean, there's a few. Ted Cruz, for example.
But the rest are straight-on Democrats, no matter what name they wear.
Thanks for the diligence in keeping us pinged Jet...
Hewitt really reamed Ryan out. Ryan had the same BS excuses he gave Mark Levin when he went on his show the day of the vote.
Personally I was never impressed with Ryan’s first budget back in 2009 or whenever. He’s no numbers wonk. What he really is is an ambitious little politician who hopes to become speaker when Boehner exits. He is willing to go along to get along with the Dems in order to maintain his status and position in the House. Thats about the best you can say for him, Cantor and McCarthy. The Young Guns. What a joke.
paul ryan, though a rino, is a traitorous jerk
