    Food Stamp Cuts Could Hit Military Members, Veterans

    If the Rs don't care about children and the elderly going hungry, they sure as hell won't care about those who fought for our country.

    Besides, they're way too busy changing VA hospitals to accept vouchers so that vets get even less medical care than they do now.

    Meanwhile, Mittens is saying he wants to increase government spending (that's OUR taxes cuz he also says he's lowering his crony's taxes!) to enlarge the military even though its bloated and wasteful.

    You know what would help a young family of 4 who's "breadwinner" is an E-2 in the armed forces?

    A payraise that's compatible with what they're asked to do.

    You know what an E2 under four years makes OP dipshit? Could you feed a wife and two kids on that?

    Unfortunately this Admin would never consider giving our men and women what they truly deserve.

    My wife and I were on the WIC program when we were stationed in Missouri. When I was in the service I AVERAGED 11,000 dollars a year (80's- early 90's).

    If there's any group out there that deserves it and needs it more, it's low ranking Military members.

    But when those same people go out and buy expensive cars on an E-3 paycheck, well then I lose all sympathy for them. :D

    not only will it hurt struggling military farmers, it will cut sales of agriculture goods.

    That's right. Nobody issues you a wife and kids when you sign up.
