Lawmakers Cut Military Disable and Retiree's Pay While Helping Criminals
Need I even say anything about how immoral and un-American this act is by congress? For years the benefits of our fighting men and women who go where they are told, do what they are told, and in many case being wounded or dying to completing the mission they are told to complete are now being stabbed in the back once again by our president and congress. Yes, the Democrats, Republicans, and President Obama want to take from not only our veterans but also our DISABLE VTES! It was brought to the floor by Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) to remove the tax breaks given to illegal aliens who are not even Americans but was shot down. He has the right idea, instead of cutting for those who has sacrificed for our country and our freedom, cut those who have violated our laws, take the money from these programs and give it to our American heroes; don’t cut the what was promised to our military. Why is keeping a promise to a criminal, and if you're here illegally you are a criminal, more important then keeping a promise to our veterans and disable veterans?
Any senator voting for this needs to be removed from office! Senate Majority Whip Dick Durbin, D-Ill., said in an interview on Sunday, “Democrats need to hold most their caucus of 55 senators together and pick up a handful of GOP senators in order to reach the 60-vote threshold to advance the bill”. Maybe senator Durbin’s constituents need to get on the phone and let them know this is a NO STARTER! Notice he said the “Democrat’s need to hold most their caucus”, have you also notice every time the Democrats run out of money they go after the Military; it seems the democrats in this country are more against the US Military then the insurgents. Senator Durbin and any other senator, Democrat or Republican who is with him needs recalled immediately; as CNN puts it, “Congress Double-Crosses Military Retirees” and they are right.
Most the GOP lawmakers are against it; most of the Democrats are for it, I once thought Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-Wash.) were good senators, both of them along with Durbin need to be gone. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C. who I cannot stand) and Roger Wicker (R-Miss.) said they cannot support the legislation because it, “disproportionately and unfairly targets those who have put their lives on the line to defend our country”; I have to agree. Lets target the lazy that refuses to work; oh wait a minute, they might have kids, and SO DOES THE MILITARY and they worked for what they receive instead of whining for another handout. We have a cancer in our national leadership and if it isn't voted out soon, we soon won't have our rights, our freedom, or our country. America; it's up to you.
