Schumer: Veterans — Not Congress — Must Face Budget Cuts

Like all things Chuck Schumer, the headline above grates on the nerves. From the accompanying story:

It’s time for retired veterans to face cuts as the federal government looks for ways to trim expenditures, Sen. Chuck Schumer said Monday. …

“They’re going to have to pay a tiny, little bit into it, which they never have,” he added.

No, veterans never have paid much into this country — unless you count blood, sweat, and tears.

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.

So are most of us — quite a bit more — thanks to Schumer and every other Democrat in the House and Senate who rammed ObamaCare down our throats, as well as Republicans who won’t do whatever it takes to defund the most maleficent bill in memory.

But Republicans don’t mind defunding a few vets, at least not among the Paul Ryan set.

At least veterans and everyone else are getting a valuable lesson: anything Big Government gives, Big Government can take away.

All-Take-Some

    Schumer in drag becomes Marie “let them eat cake” Antoinette.

    I wonder how many minutes Chucky Cheese Dick would last on a 72 hour combat patrol in Afghanistan? He would probably get fragged at the first opportunity even if he could hack the physical part of it. Outside the wire he has no chance whatsoever.

    Still, I’d love to see it.

    Isn’t it time to cut Chucky’s salary and eliminate his pension, as well as those of his comrades in the Senate?

    He wants to compare himself to Veterans and say hes given more for this country than they have, then I say we make it so. Id say its time for Chucky and government officials to bleed for this country like the Vets have.

    Is Chuck Schumer just about the worst possible excuse for a human being anyone’s ever seen? I despise this toad with all of my being. A pox on your house, Sir!

    Sen. Schumer would do well to rember that is there is a rebellion against the government the men and women whose pensions he is cutting are his hope of living.

  • Bo Jangles

    Why would anyone in their right mind put on the uniform of this nation when “leaders” like Lens-Lice Schumer make statements like that? You can bet your life he’s not for cutting one dime from any of the dozens of govt. programs that funnel money to Jewish groups.

    It’s time to repeal the 17th amendment. We can make them more accountable by going back to the constitution and have the state legislature appoint them.

    It has never been more obvious that big corporations are running the House and Senate instead of the people.

    He can kiss my ass!

    How hard does he, & his ilk, work? Not as hard a vets? How about he take a vets pay & a vet takes his pay from here on out! I’ll bet he works harder for vets pay then! I’m active duty.
