CRecently, Congress passed and the President signed into law, another $1.1 trillion debt limit; increasing our debt to approximately $18.5 trillion. This means that our debt has increased more than $8 trillion under Obama and the Democratic Party in five years.
This bill will also reduce the cost-of-living retirement adjustments for younger military retirees by 1 percent per year; while at the same time it will save welfare for all of the illegals in this country.
It does not surprise me that the Democrats and Obama wanted this; but where were the minds of all of the Republicans that voted for this bill? I did not see where you decreased the retirement for the other federal employees, including all of the politicians or the President. Most federal employees earn an average of over 30 percent more than an average employee and you politicians earn over $170,000 not including the thousands you get from lobbyist and other groups. T
he federal employees already earn at least twice the amount and the politicians earn at least four times the amount of the average military guy. All of the departments of the federal government are dysfunctional except for the military and they are beginning to be dysfunctional because of the President and you politicians in Washington trying to control their every move.
The guys in the military are away from their families and located in harm’s way most of the time. The military are the only ones that truly contribute a value to this country. A large portion of these guys have severe injuries (disabilities) and/or a severe mental disorder due to the wars. Anyone who voted for this bill is a disgrace to this country and should be removed from office.
Illegals don’t have any right in this country because they have broken the laws of the land. They should not receive any tax payer money or any other benefits from this country. If the American government had enforced the existing laws of the land, we would not have this problem and would not need new laws. Entitlements such as welfare, food stamps and housing given to American citizens should only be provided for a short period, possibly up to a year. Then the American people would have go to work and you would not need the illegal workers.
You are only contributing to their problems by continuing to give them money; they are only training their children to depend on the government. The only people that should get entitlement money over a year are the older people or someone physically not able to work. No taxpayer money should be given as entitlements to illegals. If you continue to give money to the illegals, pretty soon they will learn the system and they will be like the rest of the lazy American people.
(2 Thessalonians 3:10) “For even when we were with you, we gave you this rule: “If a man will not work, he shall not eat.”
Anyone that would join the military or recommend to their children to join the military with a liar in-chief as commander and with you guys in congress would have to be a fool. Obama and Hillary Clinton left four men to die in Benghazi and lied about it. Then the next morning he went across country to raise money for his election campaign while he and Hilary Clinton continued to lie to the American people.
Neither of these two idiots have any conscience, which means that they have no relationship to God, because he is the one that provides your conscience.
Most all of you politicians are all for yourselves and care nothing for this country. You were elected to do what is best for the American people. Therefore, it is time to step forward to stop Obama from trying to be a dictator and changing laws as he so desires. No one in his administration has been held responsible for any of the scandals; they have only been rewarded for carrying out his agenda.
Everyone in this country should be treated equally. At this point, no country has any trust in the American government because of the policies of this administration and the actions or non-actions of politicians in Washington.
