The $1.1 trillion spending bill waiting final approval in the Senate is a total betrayal of veterans, as it includes a cut to their retirement benefits. Lawmakers are breaking a promise to those who have put their lives on the line to serve their county. Somebody in Washington came up with this stupid idea to try and find some money to save and they are going to do it on the backs of retirees from the military? It’s absolutely absurd and short sighted. You mean to tell me in the entire Defense budget they can’t find somewhere else to make outside of the retirement benefits of folks who have served sometimes eight, nine tours? This needs to be repealed immediately!
