Veteran slams Paul Ryan in open letter over budget deal

SHANNON BREAM, GUEST HOST: A scathing letter from a veteran going viral. He is angry that the new bipartisan budget deal includes cuts to veteran's retirement benefits. The open letter to House Budget Committee Chairman, Paul Ryan, reads in part quote, "You may not know us by name but we're the people, Congressman, who answered our nation's call, some of us at a very early age, to willingly serve you and others like you so you could safely attend college and pursue your personal ambitions without fear of harm."

That veteran joins us now. Chuck Wooten wrote the letter. He is a retired chief master sergeant of the United States Air force. Sir, thank you for joining us, and first of all, thank you for your service.

CHUCK WOOTEN: Oh, you're very welcome and thank you for having me, Shannon. I appreciate it.

BREAM: Well listen, I understand in part your letter was motivated not only by the actual facts of what happened but the fact that you also got an e-mail asking you for a cash donation from the very people that I know in part you feel like have betrayed you.

WOOTEN: That's exactly right. Still stinging from the budget announcement when I learned that the military retirement was actually on the chopping block for reductions, still stinging from that. A day or two later, I did receive an e-mail and the e-mail was addressed from Congressman Paul Ryan. And it was a fund raiser. And normally, I would just hit the delete button and -- on those types of things. But this one for whatever reason I just chose to make a response to him and let him know specifically. And regardless of the party, when everybody that passed this and put that language in there, exactly what they've done, and the impact that they've had on the service men and women of the United States. It's a broken trust and not much excuse for it.

BREAM: You use some pretty heated words in this letter. I mean, you really don't mince words at all, really taking it to Congressman Paul Ryan. Do you blame him as much you blame Democrats? Do you blame everyone who voted for this? Who do you think should be held responsible?

WOOTEN: I think anybody that voted "yea" should be held responsible. Congressman Ryan was on the receiving end of what we call being chief. And the reason that he was is because he had the audacity or his name had the audacity to send me an e-mail. And -- after he had just gotten done picking my pocket on the budget deal, was -- had his hand out looking for a cash donation. So, I blame everyone that voted "yea" without exception.

Scroll up to the 7:50 mark. At the Christmas Tree Lighting ceremonies, the president used Jesus' humility, compassion and embracing the poor as a model for big government's redistributing the wealth, raising taxes and creating a nanny state as a means of control - depriving us of exercising our own generosity and compassion with our own money the way we see fit.
http://www.whitehouse.gov/photos-and-video/vi...
It's so obvious. Why can't liberals figure out this is a ruse just to put power in the hands of a few? How convenient to use the birth of Jesus Christ, his purpose and, thus, our purpose to look after each other - not big government's purpose - as a political power-grabbing tool.
Neither does this president have any room to talk about humility - but has no problem preaching to us.
(Maybe that's it for a while. Maybe not.)
Only a hate warped, delusional mind like yours would come up with such an ignorant interpretation Carol.
How does the government prevent you from giving to charities as you see fit? Of course the phrase "as you see fit" is the crux of the whole thing isn't it? You're all upset the some of your tax dollars go to the poor and you don't get a say in who benefits from it. The fact is that all of the private charitable donations are not and never will be sufficient to help the poor. Any real Christian knows that the Almighty will judge the nations not on their wealth or their ability to wage war on others but on how they take care of their most vulnerable citizens.
No you damned liar it's not liberals who want to concentrate power in the hands of a few, it's Ayn Randian sociopaths like you that want to turn this country into a corporate plutocracy with a wealthy ruling elite controlling the economy and the rest of us being wage slaves that they use and discard to build their wealth.
