I’ve written and have spoken this many times. I will take a 1% cut in my military retirement and have zero COLAS each year for the next 5 years IF, IF, IF:
Every agency budget also gets zero COLA and a 1% cut.
Every federal employee and contract gets zero COLA and a 1% cut.
No new spending proposals (ideas) period.
2014 can’t get here soon enough so We The People can start cleaning the DC sewer of RATs and RINOs.
