The amount of reduction in pay benefits in this budget is said to be around 8 billion dollars over the next few years, while Senator Coburn of Oklahoma has today listed an amount of 30 billion dollars in wasteful spending for the year 2013. What a testimony on the value of Veterans to this current Congress. Another insult was the defeat of the Amendment that called for the 8 billion dollars to be taken from Tax Credits for Illegal Immigrants. Who in this world do you all represent?
Before I close I would like to remind you and all senators, representatives, executive branch at the federal level, and all elected positions in the state and local levels of government, your right to serve, your opportunity to be elected to an elected position, your actions of freedom of speech, your opportunity to govern and make laws that only pertain to the masses. Your opportunity to waste millions and sometimes billions, have been purchased, maintained and insured by the greatest military in the world, a military that you and other elected officials are reducing to a second rate power and are now meddling with the one benefit that has made so many veterans remain in the military as a career.
United States Senate, United States House of Representatives, WAKE UP.
You are hurting the one division of the United States Government that does not have to re-establish its need for existence today or at any other time in history.
