And not a word from these anti-American lowlifes: Ryan et al., about cutbacks to SNAP or Welfare.

Despite the GAO indicating that around 1/3 of benefits are obtained fraudulently.

We have illegal immigrants buying 55 gal. plastic barrels to ship food they buy with SNAP to their relatives overseas for resale or to run resturants.

And the best that this clown Ryan can think to do is cut military pensions.

They will never cut welfare. They will cut as much as they can from military retirement and active duty pay because we will never riot. The welfare rats will burn the country to the ground and the .gov knows this. They are paying out welfare to ensure this doesn't happen.

First of all one of the LAST things we ought to do AFTER we eliminate the FSA programs IS to take a look at military retirement as if is a VERY large expense.

I have no sacred cows and think everything ought to be looked at.

Weren't EBT cards cut $50 a month or so ago? As for military cuts, all federal retirement funds were spent during the sequester. Expect the seizure of IRAs and pension funds by the government. Also expect any bank accounts to be devalued through quantitative easing. Last, we will see our currency devalued during the global economic reset.

BTW, the IMF wants a huge income tax imposed on us.

Congress is busted. Flipping idiots are all warm and fuzzy about evaporating a molecule or two out of a drop of water in the 5000-gallon tank that is our budget. Instead of taking some relatively easy steps and actually making a dent in the problem. Using DoD as the major budgetary target is a coward's way out of having to make and explain more difficult/ less popular decisions IMHO.

Just cutting fraud, waste, and abuse from the major areas of the federal budget would add up to real money. Quickly. IIRC in 2011, Medicare alone had something like $50 Billion in "improper payments" (fraudulent claims, mistaken identity and payment not recovered, etc...). $50 billion a year from just one program. FWA within Social Security is much higher, and FWA is present in every government agency and program. Including DoD.

Concentrate on identifying and cutting the FWA first, government wide. See how much money can be saved. (I'll bet it's in the multiple hundreds of billions.)

All of that can be done without cutting the other "sacred cows" - social security, welfare, medicare, medicaid, SNAP, etc...

Should be easy for the politicians to sell to John Q, but no one seems to even think about proposing these things.

Then look at cutting things like the asinine studies (like the $1.5 mil for a study on why lesbians are fat) where we give money out like free candy.

Foreign Aid needs to be looked at.

Why are we still funding NPR and PBS? Seriously - why?

National Endowment for the Arts? Really? That should be funded by philanthropy, not taxpayers money.

All fedgov agencies need to be looked at. Start with an across-the-board cut - everybody has a budget reduction. Eliminate redundant programs. Streamline processes. Reduce size and scope.

Why the hell are people getting more tax money refunded to them than they pay? Other than the self-centered, the leeches, the special interest groups, and politicians - how in the ever-living hell does this shit even come close to making sense to people? Stop it. Just cut it off. Cut the corporate tax rate, allow repatriation of overseas funds, and implement either a low flat tax or a consumption tax and cut the size of the IRS.

And while we're at it, gut the progressive/ enviro-wacko infestation in the regulatory and land management agencies, and the judiciary. Remove the onerous regulations and restrictions that are stifling entire market segments. Get the hell out of the way of the market and let the economy heal itself. We'll end up with lower energy costs, more growth, more employment - and by extension more money into the Fed Gov because more people are working and paying taxes.

Then start looking at plans to extricate us from social security and minimize welfare and other assistance programs over the next couple of generations.

If you joined for the pension you represent less that 0.5% of the service members.

Am I reading this correctly that this cut is a 1 percent cut in COLA per year? Not a reduction in actual retirement pay, just a reduction in the amount your retirement pay will go up each year as the cost of living goes up. While I agree that other programs should be cut first, and this could be part of the "death by a thousand paper cuts" thing, this seems to be a really sensational article.

Food-stamp fraud in New York has turned into foreign aid — to black-market profiteers in the Dominican Republic.
Last week, The Post revealed how New Yorkers on welfare are buying food with their benefit cards and shipping it in blue barrels to poor relatives in the Caribbean

Because the $6.30 an hour for serving in combat will keep the rolls full.

As long as you understand you want the draft back I'm fine with that. You'll not get men to leave their families for 6 to 10 months at a time for $1900 a month so that they can hump 80 pounds of gear in +100 degree temperature while avoiding IEDs and getting shot working 12-20 hours a day across a 20 year career. The bitch about the draft is you can't draft a senior enlisted person who are the core that actually run and lead our military. You can draft grunts but who's going to lead and direct them? Are you going to draft someone for 15 years, if not where do you get your professionals? You have to attract and retain a professional core of skilled and experenced warrior willing to trash their bodies, leave their famlies and comfort for months a year for 20 years, while getting paid less than they would make sitting at home on unemployment and welfare. These are the people whose pensions your attacking.

The dirty little secret is that the COLA isn't really COLA.

I don't know if you do the buying around your house but I do here. In the last five years the COLA increase has been about 1% to a whopping 1.7% while the cost of fuel has doubled, the cost of beef and pork has doubled ...

That's not what "society", or "the majority" thinks at all.

Everyone here reads this, and immediately thinks how to cut other things to balance the budget, how to properly prioritize spending, etc. if that's you, you've missed the boat. They're not RUNNING the country, they're just raiding the treasury. It all makes perfect sense when you read the news with that as your premise. Does anyone here really believe "they" spent $600 Million on healthcare.gov website? Or that they really spent $750 Billion on "shovel ready jobs"? The Mocha Muslim said on camera they didn't. So where did it all go? It's not even stealing cause they openly admit they're just taking money.

If you joined for the pension you represent less that 0.5% of the service members.

You're serving for the wrong reason, it is best you do get out.


It is kind of sad...when it comes to military pay and pension society thinks "Hey they are patriotic, they aren't there for the money so we can get away with paying them shit!!!"

I have no sacred cows and think everything ought to be looked at.

No offense, but fuck all that.

A deal is a deal.

You can kill off my retirement completely for all I care: Just give me back my twenty years.

What deal was that? How did they earn those benefits? What service did they provide for those benefits?
Are you trying to make a point that I'm just not seeing?

Wait--did you leave your computer logged on? Did a moron get hold of your keyboard?

Vesting military retirement would save BILLIONS and trim down the number of warm body slugs waiting on their 20 yr letter.

Change it to a percentage for 10 yrs, 15 yr. , 20 yrs.

It's a win/win:
Trims the military.
Frees up slots for promotable SM's
Allows the military to save: not having to pay salaries for substandard returns while they wait for the 20 yr lottery ticket
Allows the military to save mountains of money by reduced % payouts.
Compensates the SM in some small way for time spent in honorable service

Thats why its called service, no one should be trying to live off the government.


So people putting their asses on the line shouldn't get paid for it?

I don't think many military retirees are "living off the government" entirely at 22,500 a year (the avg pension). I'm not saying they deserve riches but someone gives 20 years of their life RISKING their life, living in shitty places, getting shitty pay, moving every few years (not building equity in a home), and working insane hours with no overtime.....they might want a little more than "thank you for your service" and a discount at home depot.

Ah, fuck it. Bring back the draft. Exclude no one, regardless of sex or educational pursuits.

It's not like we're at war, or are looking at being in combat soon anytime.










Mach is right.
