That will be the title of the next movie that is done on the Military because it appears that in Barack Obama’s budget cuts the Military is an area he can cut. It is disgusting because National Pandhandler Radio is exempt, Planned Parenthood is exempt, but the men and women who fight on the battlefield for the above mentioned entities to exist, are not exempt. I Hope To Hell Anyone Who Votes For This Burns In Hell.
The Pentagon’s top officer said Thursday that servicemembers will likely see cuts in pay and benefits as the military plumbs its budget for nearly half a trillion dollars in savings over the next 12 years.
Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen warned against taking the “relatively easy” choice of cutting hardware while maintaining the increasing costs of paying and providing ongoing health care to troops and retirees.
“Two of the big places the money is, is in pay and benefits,” Mullen told defense reporters at a June 2 breakfast meeting in Washington. “And so when I say all things are on the table, all things are on the table.”
In May, President Obama proposed sweeping budget cuts totaling $400 billion over the next 12 years — a fiscal hit experts say will largely come from the DoD. Defense Secretary Robert Gates has said health care costs are “eating the Department of Defense alive” — with nearly 10 percent of the budget going to health benefits for active and retired servicemembers.
That anyone in Congress or the Department of Defense, would even think, let alone seriously consider cutting pay/benefits from those who sacrifice the most for our Country, is UN-American. I know the leftists in the Faculty Lounge Administration, including their leader Barack Hussein Obama, despise the Military but this is even more depraved then any of their other acts. I encourage each and every one of you to contact your Congressman or woman and tell them “HELL NO” you won’t do this to our fine men and women, and if they choose to vote yes on any legislation that includes these cuts, they will be fired!
I don’t think I could have expressed in any stronger language (though I wanted to) what exactly taking pay and benefits away from those who fight and die for We The People then this soldier did in his final words to his wife and child. You see, he has shown the type of man and woman that we send to die in the name of the United States of America and why they should be the highest paid members of our society, not considered for less money and less benefits. They Fight Because They Love This Country, They Are Not Political Pawns, Mr. Obama.
He then told her to be strong for their daughter, who had been just nine months old when he left for the war zone in June 2010.
‘Remind her about her Daddy and tell her that I loved her more than anything else in the world,’ he wrote.
‘Her birth was the best day of my life and she was the best thing that ever happened to me. Tell her that Daddy is in heaven now and will watch over her and protect her every minute of every day.’
