Rep. Allen West STANDS UP for Military Personnel and their Families

===========

=======================

While the Liberal Think Tank, the Center for American Progress states this:

In its fiscal year 2013 budget request, the Department of Defense has proposed a series of adjustments to military pay, health care, and retirement benefits which aim to place the programs on a more sustainable footing. These changes—analyzed in a new Center for American Progress report by Lawrence Korb, Alex Rothman, and Max Hoffman—would include reducing the rate of increase for military base pay, introducing new fees and co-pays for Tricare services, and the creation of a Military Retirement Modernization Commission to oversee the overhaul of the current system.

The threat that mounting personnel costs pose to military readiness has not gone unnoticed by the nation’s political and military leaders. In the Pentagon’s FY 2013 budget request, Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta and the Joint Chiefs of Staff highlight the need for significant changes to the Defense Department’s existing pay, health care, and retirement systems.

Suggestion:  How about we send personnel from the Center for American Progress to boot camp, then put a rifle in their hands, send them to Afghanistan on the front lines and see how they feel about our military when they return to the U.S.?

GOD BLESS OUR MILITARY!

WE MUST STAND UP FOR OUR MILITARY AGAINST GOVERNMENT INTRUSION into THEIR PAY, THEIR HEALTHCARE and RETIREMENT PAY!
