The people thought that they could keep their health care coverage and their doctor. Period. Free Beacon: “A provision cutting the pensions of military retirees in the bipartisan budget deal that the Senate will vote on this week does not exempt disabled veterans… Disabled retirees were previously thought to be exempt from the changes to military retiree pay…”
Sessions(R): “It has been asserted that the controversial change to military retiree’s pensions affects those who are working age and still in their working years with the clear suggestion being that these individuals are able to work. That’s why I was deeply troubled when my staff and I discovered that even individuals who have been wounded and suffered a service related disability could see their pensions reduced under this plan.”
FAIR: “Illegal immigration costs U.S. taxpayers about $113 billion a year at the federal, state and local level. The bulk of the costs — some $84 billion — are absorbed by state and local governments.” This report was revised in February 2011.
Taxpayers, veterans included, are funding government entitlements to illegals. Food stamps and Medicaid, the USDA is working with the Mexican government to market food stamps to them.
Our federal benefit programs for illegals has long been contributing to our deficit downfall and then Congress has the cajones (ask the illegals) to balance it out on the backs of our disabled vets?
You know what you get if you support a liberal in 2014. The GOP, if you haven’t learned, look at them like this stupid knock out game. Either they start watching their voters or they’re gone. Final round, you knock them out or they are going to take you down. They have your schools, your doctor, your flag, your heat, your Christmas, your food, your cigarettes, and now your military. And they’re watching you all the time.
