Schumer: Veterans Should Take a Pay Cut But Congress Should Not

Senator Chuck Schumer (D-NY) believes that it's time that US military veterans do their part for America by taking a cut to their retirement benefits.

Because, of course, veterans haven't done enough for the country.

Members of Congress, however, should take no such cuts. According to the rather despicable gun-control advocating Senator Schumer, the government officials have sacrificed enough.

Civilian federal employees have been cut, cut, cut. I think there was a feeling, if you’re going to cut them further, which was done, that the military retirees should have about an equal amount. It’s small,” the New York Democrat told MSNBC’s “Morning Joe.

“I think (Rep.) Paul Ryan and (Sen.) Patty Murray looked everywhere they could to try and find compromise. Everybody had to take a little,” Schumer said.

“They’re going to have to pay a tiny, little bit into it, which they never have,” he added.
But Schumer maintained members of Congress should not be forced to take a pay cut. He said they have already sacrificed, since they have not seen a pay raise “in a long time,” and explained most of them are paying more for healthcare insurance.

“We have taken pretty big cuts,” he said. (source)

Let’s tally up the numbers to put things in perspective:

The average pension for a retired veteran was $9,669 in 2011. (source)
The salary for a US Senator is $174,000. (source)

Just so this statistic is perfectly clear, the members of Congress bring in over 17 times the amount that retired vets do.

Despite this, veterans under the age of 62 will be looking at a 1% per year cut in their benefits. Members of Congress will not be looking at any reduction.

I would think you would be more concerned about the country at that point~

And when that collapses the dollar, Democrats will become like an expired coupon:non-redeemable and No Cash Value. My charity doesn't extend to math challenged A-holes that voted to put us in this situation. Hopefully the military dishes out unspeakable punishment to all Democrat and Rino politicians who have had a hand in our collapse. They think that as the ruling class that they'll be able to resume ruling and their bellies will remain full while us peasants will sell our butts for food or heat.

Yes, the democrats.
Here's some more info on that....
http://www.breitbart.com/Big-Governm...itary-Pensions

On December 17 Democratic senators successfully blocked a Republican attempt to shift spending cuts away from military pensions into a billion-dollar IRS credit sometimes claimed by illegal immigrants.

This sets the stage for a final vote on the budget bill by late Wednesday.
According to Fox News, Senator Jeff Sessions (R-AL) fought to cut billions from "an IRS credit that illegal immigrants have claimed." However, Democrats blocked his amendment, thereby preserving the credit for illegals while moving forward instead with cuts to military pensions.
Sessions and his colleagues argued that the budget bill "unfairly sticks veterans and other military retirees with the cost of new spending." Speaking from the Senate floor, he said this was "not correct, and it should not happen."
He argued when Democrats blocked his amendment they had essentially chosen to "cut military pensions instead of cutting welfare for illegal immigrants."

I thought there were many on this board that claimed illegals don't get any welfare benefits. Were they wrong or lying?
