Paul Ryan Calls For Military Pension Cuts: Unbelievable!

Wisconsin Congressman Paul Ryan, the Vice Presidential running mate of Mitt Romney in 2012, seemed to be on the road to understanding what compromise was all about, when he made a budget deal with Senator Patty Murray of Washington, a sign of progress against the Tea Party Movement, which opposed it in the House of Representatives and in the Senate, but was unable to stop it.

But no sooner than Ryan doing something sensible, now he is saying that military pensions must be cut, rather than say that the defense industries need to take cuts in government buying of unnecessary weapons, all highly inflated, as the defense industries are constantly getting billions of dollars that could be called “waste, fraud and abuse”, but have the Republicans in Congress In their “hip pocket.”

So veterans who have sacrificed for the nation now must expect benefit cuts, an outrageous, disgraceful concept!

This must be bitterly opposed by all progressives, who appreciate the labors and sacrifices of our veterans, of any period in our history, from World War II to Korea to Vietnam to the Persian Gulf War to Iraq and Afghanistan!

    Hello professor,
    First off I want to pass on the most sincere “Seasons’ Greetings” to you and everyone on this site.

    I have a brother-in-law who is a retired Army officer. He unfortunately dines on a solid diet of reactionary right blog sites, writings, and news media. If it has an extreme right wing viewpoint, he accepts it without any question or critical thinking.

    I would love to ask him if he supports this latest ultra conservative proposal to cut his own retirement payments. After all he only worked for 20 years but could expect the government retirement checks for the next 30 years. I would close with, “Don’t you think you should do your part to bet off the government’s free ride and support Paul Ryan’s conservative solution?”

    Then I get to watch him go off like Donald Duck spouting nihilistic programed statements. Sometimes it’s quite entertaining….but I won’t. 🙂

    Very sad, Engineer, that this is so! But keep speaking out!
