Yeah those things realistically won't happen. If every politician wants to lose his seat come his re-election time, maybe they'd do it...

And the Pentagon isn't the ones who makes those decisions. Well maybe the hospitals. I dunno. But Congress would definitely have to change a law regarding the military retirements.

There is going to be a storm. I didn't know the Pentagon had the power to make law. Well, Obama signed a treaty that wasn't approved by congress. The pentagon is going to make laws now. All of this is an incredibly slippery slope. Frank Zappa called our democracy a candy coated dictatorship. Maybe Frank Zappa is smarter than I ever imagined.

no, the proposal goes to the pentagon brass, to be dished out and presented to congress for consideration.

We can thank Paul Ryan for the reduction in future cola benefits for our military retired personnel.

Funny how a Democrat can only blame Paul Ryan. This was a joint legislation with Paul Ryan {R} and Patty Murray {D}. Right or wrong this can not be blamed on one party. America has a history of "Cheating" veterans beginning with Geo. Washington's Presidency. The veterans of the American Revolution were deprived of land grants and pensions all the way up to 1838. Civil War vets were cheated. The Vets of WWI were beat and arrested by a young Capt. Geo. Patton in Washington DC protest.
The Nation has a habit of forgetting the military when the threat is gone.
