Or so our beloved Congress Critters would have the Veterans and Active duty, Reserve and Guard believe.
This is almost one of those “Careful what you wish for – you just might get it” moments After nearly 6 years of not passing one – we have a budget but it’s a Socialist’s wet dream. Here’s some highlights of this latest stab in the back to the Armed Services.
+4 % increase in “domestic programs” (Welfare, SNAP, MEDICAID and Unemployment)
-1 % Cut in military retirement COLA (Cost of Living Allowance). By some estimates, an E-7 with 20 years just took a 70,000.00 Dollar hair cut.
Federal Employees – Exempted. Of course, can’t be hurting the bottom lines of those faithful
“civil servants” Obama voters now can we?
After the VFW and other veteran’s group raised holy living hell about this cut, Washing Democrat Senator Patty Murray often viewed as the dumbest woman in congress for such inanities as :
“He’s been out in these countries for decades, building schools, building roads, building infrastructure, building day-care facilities, building health-care facilities, and the people are extremely grateful. He’s made their lives better.”
Who might that be you ask that the dumbest Senator ever to disgrace Congress was gushing over? Osama Bin Laden. I guess that applies as long as you don’t count the people he killed – jus’ saying Patty.
Murray had this to say in regard to the billions of dollars stolen from Veterans.
I want to make absolutely sure today that they know that a provision included in this deal that mistakenly included disabled retirees and survivors for changes in the pension growth will be addressed in short order following passage of this bill,” Murray said. “I think all of us know that our disabled veterans have made tremendous sacrifices for our nation and deserve the peace of mind that their benefits will not be adjusted under this compromise legislation. This technical error certainly can, should, and will be addressed.”
Yeah – right Check’s in the mail Patty. When’s the last time any law such as this was ever rendered null and void again? Oh yeah, that’s right NEVAH! But thanks for pissing on my legs and working so very hard to convince me that it truly is a warm April Shower. Three news cycles and your promise is nothing but words in the winds.
Adding insult to injury our ever reliable RINO John McCain said :
Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a former prisoner of war, was among the few willing to defend the benefit cut.
“We cannot have continued increases in costs and benefits forever because of our inability to fund our national security,” McCain said. “In other words, the dramatic increase in personnel and benefit costs are such that we really aren’t going to have money left over for the mission, the equipment, and the capabilities.”
Fuck you, you doddering senile old fool, your “prisoner of war hero” card is over played…..”In other words”, what you really said is: “We want our Boon-Doggle Defense projects like “green bi0- fuel” for the Navy costing twice as much as conventional diesel – but a hearty Hi-ho, Merry Christmas, and sincere fuck you to people who actually served.” And BTW Johny Rotten McVain? Those would be people who have managed to NOT crash every fucking plane they ever sat in and get captured by a bunch of uneducated peasants with fucking sling shots and clubs running around in black pajamas.
My Christmas wish list of traitorous fucks that catch a bullet in the noggin grows ever longer Johnny boy…. You’re right up there with Hanoi Jane and the rest of the commie rat bastards.
And oh – just so the unwashed masses don’t think they escaped this totally unscathed – Go by a plane ticket to anywhere- it’s now gonna be 5 bucks more expensive thanks to Congress…. the bill includes yet another increase “TSA FEE” to allow a bunch of HS dropouts with nose rings and bad breathe to grab your junk, remove prosthetic breasts, and generally violate your rights against unreasonable search.
Meeeeeeryyyy Christmas Peasants !!
United States House and Senate.
Interestingly, our elected officials’ exorbitant “compensation” for Cthulhu knows what is not being cut. These bastards are rich enough. They do not NEED lavish perks and pensions. Cut THEIR shit, if we’re going to cut anything. Why are they untouchable and above the law? Piglosi and the rest of the fat swine can get their six figure bar tabs, jets,… Read more »
Seems to me they are funding Obamacare with this as well. Thanks to the Republicans who voted for cloture in the senate! (And the Shitbags who authored this in the house). It’s expected that the Demonrats will shit all over the Republic with every opportunity. It’s their nature. That said, it sure would be swell if there was an opposition… Read more »
The Obama and Congress snowman:
Presents for RINOS
Gentlemen, I am one of these military part-timer National Guard people…. My job, as an Engineer, was to build or demolish things, as well as take care of people during a disaster. I still have the skills, and the rank… What I do NOT have is any fucking certainty that my people and our equipment will be available any longer… Read more »
And still you won’t lift a finger against us. Marx help us, we’re actually running out of ways to fuck with you peasants. We’ve already buggered you to the point that a supertanker can transit your O-ring going sideways. It’s almost not fun anymore. Almost….
– Your Betters
Princess Natasha, Vlad Putin’s Bastard War-Child @ #: What I want to know is why. What is it that we did, that we fucked up more than the “big bosses’? You weren’t born an Elite. You didn’t go to the proper schools. You haven’t dedicated your life to “public service.” You haven’t embraced social justice. Or, pace Eric Stratton, rush… Read more »
It’s simple demographics. They don’t need our vote. They need the illegals who will come over here in gargantuan numbers and huge potential voting blocks. Come in, Nat! Get with the program!
“You trusted them”… BWAHAHAHAHA! ROFLMAO. I did not trust Jack SHIT. I am laughing so hard right now…
Hemp, etc.: Does anyone realistically think they even COULD take out the regulatory regime even if they truly WANTED TO? (Hint: They Don’t). Not with a whole congress of Ted Cruz’s and a Ronald Reagan in the White House could we do this. Why not? Congress abolishes the offending agencies, the POTUS signs the act, he remains unimpeachable under those… Read more »
I’d love to see that happen. I truly would. Why, I’d grill a nice rare steak, seasoned with a dash of pepper, and savor it and a Grolsch while glued to the live web-feed. Sadly, I am just too cynical to believe that we can get a congress full of constitutional conservatives in this day and age, and a president… Read more »

He doesn’t have the balls to cut the pensions of civilian employees that are astronomical! The government would shut down… now, there’s a good idea. Notice how no one noticed when the government was shut down earlier in the year?
Perhaps the military needs a Union, then the politicians might take care of them
