RINO Senate sell-outs charge forward over the bodies of military retirees

NYT Lindsey Graham 'Slammed Back Home' for Being a RINO
Beware of charging RINOs.

In a dizzying legislative dance, the US Senate completed the vote to conduct a vote later on what the House has already voted on, as reported by CBS News on Dec. 17, 2013.

With a vote of 67-33 in favor of cloture, the Senate has elected to stop all debate on the $63 billion budget increase deal that will largely be financed on the backs of those retired from the Uniformed Services to include the NOAA (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Commissioned Corps) and the Public Health Service Commissioned Corps (PHS).

Retired Uniformed Personnel ONLY…

As previously covered, a budget deal brokered by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) with Senate Budget Committee Chairwoman Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) has ensured a mere handful of years worth of increased governmental spending would come at the expense of the annual COLA (Cost of Living Allowances) increases for those retired from the Uniformed Services.

Unfortunately for those in favor of an honest and objective press, CBS News wrongly printed “the deal also requires new federal workers to contribute more to their pensions. ”

Most senators agree.
Most senators agree.

In actuality, the deal is paid for not by a cut in future COLA increases of unionized civilian federal workers, nor from a cut in pay raises for congressmen and senators, and neither will it be financed by any decreases in foreign aid or presidential vacations.

Uniformed retirees and uniformed retirees only will shoulder the responsibility to pay for the billions of increased spending.

With today’s vote moving forward with 53 aye votes by every single Democrats and the two Independents (who caucus with the Democrats) to cut off debate and move to a final vote, 12 Republicans aligned themselves with those who openly care more about paying for expanding liberal entitlement programs while going back on the agreement the government made with those who served:

  • Sen. Lamar Alexander of Tennessee
  • Roy Blunt of Missouri
  • Saxby Chambliss of Georgia
  • Susan Collins of Maine
  • Jeff Flake of Arizona
  • John McCain of Arizona
  • Orrin Hatch of Utah
  • John Hoeven of North Dakota
  • Johnny Isakson of Georgia
  • Ron Johnson of Wisconsin
  • Lisa Murkowski of Arkansas
  • Rob Portman of Ohio

  1. Unfortunately for those in favor of an honest and objective press, CBS News wrongly printed “the deal also requires new federal workers to contribute more to their pensions. ”

    How is that wrong?

    It’s pretty clearly defined in the committee summary. It’s unrelated to the reduction of the COLA for veterans. Perhaps, that’s the mistake you’re making.

    Oh, and you failed to mention the 169 other Republicans in Congress that voted for this bill. You might want to mention them also.

    1. CBS generically states “federal workers.” It is wrong because it implies *all* federal workers. I thought I made that clear in the article.

      I didn’t mention the House vote due to the link to the cited article already mentioning that. Besides… the vast majority of political junkies already know that the House is GOP controlled, hence, of course the Republicans overwhelmingly voted for it.

      1. CBS generically states “federal workers.” It is wrong because it implies *all* federal workers. I thought I made that clear in the article.

        It doesn’t imply any such thing. The article says “new federal workers” because it only applies to those hired after December 31st.

        You may have incorrectly inferred something that’s not in the CBS article but that’s hardly their fault.

        1. If you would, follow the link the the cited article I did a day or so back, the citing is there that only Uniformed Services retirees are hit for this. Not the rather vague “all new” federal workers.

          1. There’s nothing vague about it.

            The increases in the required contribution of federal workers has absolutely nothing to do with members of the military. It’s a completely different subject.

            All new federal employees in the Federal Employee Retirement System will have their contributions increased.

            Members of the military don’t pay into the system. So, contributions can not be subject to increase. The only way to reduce the cost is off the back end by lowering the COLA.

  2. I know progressives are “blue falcons” (buddy fuckers), but the rhinos really piss me off. They are not even Rninos, they are flat out LIBERALS… THEY ARE PROGRESSIVE MOTHERFUCKERS AT BEST. Thank god mitt and Ryan did not win…I understand fags and retards hating the Military, but people that run on protecting our way of life… Hey, just take everything AWAY and say it is because WE HAVE SACRAFISED ENOUGH. take our medical coverage, take our vocational rehab, take our medical counciling, so we all can go on massive killing sprees..let’s see will say there is just a Million PTSD vets and we go out and kill 30 people each, hey there you go we kill 30,000,000 AMERICANS, BUT WE SAY A 1% COLA RAISE… THIS IS HOW ALL POLITICIANS THINK, AND YOU SAY WE HAVE PROBLEMS…… FUCK YOU RYAN, YOU ARE JUST A NOTHER SILVER SPOON FUCKING CUM DUMPSTER
