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)
http://www.newsmax.com/Newsfront/sch...2/16/id/542061

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.

Share this on: Facebook Twitter Digg del.icio.us reddit MySpace StumbleUpon FIRST ON CNN: Panetta to recommend pay cut for military
By Barbara Starr

Just days before he leaves office, Defense Secretary Leon Panetta is recommending military pay be limited, effectively decreasing troop salaries next year.

Panetta will recommend to Congress that military salaries be limited to a 1% increase in 2014. The Pentagon has calculated that the Labor Department's 2014 Employment Cost Index is expected to be above 1% but wants to still cut back on pay because of "budget uncertainties," a department official told CNN. In 2013, a 1.7% increase was approved, based on the index, which has been the basis for military pay for the last several years.

Three Pentagon officials have confirmed details of the plan to CNN. The Joint Chiefs of Staff have also agreed to Panetta's proposed pay plan. Final approval for the pay would come from Congress in the form of the 2014 budget.

The recommendation is tied to the Defense Department's 2014 budget recommendation, which was expected to be sent to Congress this month, one of the officials said. But the officials acknowledge it is going to be seen as an effort to push Congress to stop the automatic budget cuts that could go into effect if no deal is reached on spending reductions.
ALSO: Panetta warns spending cuts will degrade military readiness

The decision comes as the secretary is stepping up the rhetoric about dire cuts at the Pentagon if sequestration goes into effect. President Obama in 2012 walled off military pay from cuts, so if this current pay plan goes into effect, it's widely seen as "cutting our pay," one military officer familiar with the plan told CNN. "It's a smart move, it puts it in Congress' hands," he said.

Panetta, in one of his last official speeches as secretary of defense, told an audience at Georgetown University on Wednesday that the Pentagon faced "the most serious readiness crisis in over a decade."

The defense secretary outlined a series of possible cuts should the Pentagon be forced to find half a trillion dollars more in savings. He warned that 800,000 civilian workers could furloughed for 22 days and that the Army would need to cut back on training and maintenance, putting two-thirds of combat teams at "reduced readiness levels." Pacific naval operations could be cut by as much a third, and Air Force flying hours and weapons maintenance could be cut.

CNN has also learned that this week, the Navy is expected to announce it does not have the money to pay for refueling and maintenance of the aircraft carrier Abraham Lincoln. That will essentially mean the Navy is short a carrier and overseas deployments will be cut.
"No good options exist," Panetta said.

The military is conservative leaning and pro 2A. Therefore they must be punished. During government shutdown, they lost their NFL games eventhough the games are part of a contract that was already paid. Why should any corpse mens have any comforts or reminders of home. Leftist must think they need to assimilate to Afghanistan.
Leftist think the illegal aliens belong in this country and shouldn't be expected to assimilate and learn English because Mexico once owned the southwest.
One more thing that the ever more ignorant left don't know is that Spain ruled Mexico for hundreds of years. They gained independence from Spain and 5 years later they abducted and murdered a dozen Texas Rangers from Texas soil. The might of the US kicked their ass all the way to Mexico City. Mexico tapped out. We owned them. We tossed them a few million dollars for the southwest on the way out.

Leftist are cancer.

There should be a mandatory 10% cut to every piece of the stinking budget in the federal directory. When you put the fire to the feet of people with finality, you'll see which programs are needed and which are not.

Pelosi has said that the Cupboards are bare. They can't cut anything more. Strange thing is that spending goes up 5% every year. Democrats squeal that it's a cut if it's only raised 4%. That's why we're doomed. When the enemy is as irrational as that and the media is in the tank.

I'm genuinely worried for your guys' cardiac health if the Democrats win the mid-terms next year, to say nothing of if they retain the Presidency in 2016.
