Don't cut veterans' benefits

The Department of Defense under President Obama is downsizing the military as of 2013. The real shame is that our representatives in Congress are going along with the second part of this downsizing, which is to reduce the salary and benefits to the military – including the military who have been wounded in combat. They are doing this to save money.

 

How about Congress cutting its benefits, salaries and expense accounts? That would save one heck of a lot of money. Also cut Obama’s salary, and take away his wife’s vacation nonsense that costs us one heck of a lot of money.

I have had enough of this foolish, lying, poor excuse of a government we have now.

I never met a U.S. veteran who fought for socialism, and I doubt very much that the men and women in uniform now are fighting for it either.
