Obama has spent billions propping up public sector unions in the states and now wants to hack away at military retirement plans for savings. Panetta is just Obama’s little puppet for accomplishing further erosion of our defense structure.
Consider for what? Take slices out of military benefits so Obama can continue to spend us into oblivion?
Why, at this point, must the military be considered?
Why not cut out future stimulus, like the last Obama stimulus that propped state public sector unions and their plush benefit packages?
Why not reform Social Security, Medicare…and all of the other accounts that have been robbed by our politicians over the years?
No, it’s crucial that we hack away at the very people who put their lives on the line to defend this country.
I agree with Scales:
Retired Gen. Bob Scales called the proposal “a bad deal.”
“That’s why the military retirement system was structured the way it was structured because war is a young man’s game,” he told Fox news. “We reward those who sacrifice when they’re young. And the reward is when they retire, they are given a decent retirement pay to carry them over the time they leave the service, and this of course would just remove that.”
This administration disgusts me in almost every way.
For Obama, the military is not worthy of every dime they receive, they are better served to be used as tools when Obama needs them.
Before we cut into the benefits of the military, why doesn’t Obama lead on the “shared sacrifice” instead of creating armored campaign buses for the Magical Misery Tour, visiting wealthy vacation destinations during crucial economic times, or sending propaganda payout incentives to major internet companies — all on the taxpayer dime?
