    President proposes a cut in military pay raises - WTKR

    ^There's a News Story that Backs the 1.4% Claim that is Running around the Intraweberies, but I can't Pin Down anything on the Increase in Welfare Payments...

    Anyone got that Percentage?...

    :)

    peace...

    Military pay increases may depend on the dollar amount of the lucrative Blackwater contracts. Since we are now in the business of paying companies to fight our wars for us, this could mean less money available for our own soldiers.

    Well... That Link Named itself... ;)

    As for a "Cut"... It's a Cut in the Previous Increase.

    Isn't that what Liberals have said for Years when Proposed Decreases in Increases are on the Table?... :lol:

    :)

    oops, that's right, you never served.

    :lol::lol::lol:

    Those of us who actually served remember some years with big raises, some years with small raises, some years with no raise at all. We still served. We still honored our Country with our actions rather than just shooting our mouths off.
