They will now only get the $7.50 daily proration for the individual days they are actually serving in harm’s way instead of for the whole month. (DOD)
Barack Obama cut pay for military men and women serving in harm’s way starting this month.
Now the Obama Administration is planning on cutting healthcare benefits for active duty soldiers while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched.
The Free Beacon reported:
The Obama administration’s proposed defense budget calls for military families and retirees to pay sharply more for their healthcare, while leaving unionized civilian defense workers’ benefits untouched. The proposal is causing a major rift within the Pentagon, according to U.S. officials. Several congressional aides suggested the move is designed to increase the enrollment in Obamacare’s state-run insurance exchanges.
As angry as this proposal makes me, I’m not surprised. This is the same President Obama who proposed making wounded Veterans like myself pay for our war injuries using private insurance. He simply does not respect the military. When your loyalty to the unions who fill your campaign coffers with cash supersedes your loyalty to the men and women who put their lives on the line for the country you lead, you are truly, and utterly, morally depraved.
