Obama “Laying Off” Thousands of Military Officers

While Obama is telling his cabinet to find “creative ways” around Congress to implement his progressive agenda, it appears he is spending his creative energies finding new ways to disrespect the U.S. military.

Over the course of his time in office, the president has managed to consistently slap members of the armed forces in the face. He’s attempted to cut their pay raises, which left many soldiers struggling to pay their bills.

Obama also refused to label the Fort Hood shooting a terrorist attack, preventing troops from getting benefits they desperately needed to pay for medical treatment.

Then there’s the VA scandal, which Obama knew about for years and still did nothing to correct the abuses going on, which led to the death of 40 veterans.

Now, to add insult to injury, the president is handing out pink slips to soldiers who are currently serving in Afghanistan, letting them know that their “services are no longer required.”
Disgraceful. These men and women put their lives on the line daily to ensure the survival of our way of life. They have sacrificed more than most average citizens could ever imagine, and the least we can do in return is ensure they have a job to come home to.

Spending cuts absolutely need to be made, there’s no doubt about it. However, the first place to start would be with the salary members of Congress. There are plenty of cuts to unnecessary programs that could be made that would prevent the reduction of military personnel from being necessary. Unfortunately, since Obama seems to hate the armed forces, it’s unlikely these steps will ever be taken....

The Men and Women WHO thought they were Going to make A career in the Military are now being pink slipped by Obama! some of these Officers have close to 14 years in service! NOW to be asked to Leave is unconscionable..YOUR the Lowest of Low Obama!!!

Actually if you knew any facts you would have read elsewhere that this layoff was the direct result of the Republican party sequester cuts. You are worse than Fox news of spreading misinformation.

Republicans fight for spending cuts over taxing the rich. Something has to give. They cant have everything they want without their wealthy donors helping their fair share. Us working people are fed up with Republicans fighting for the rich and ignoring the working man. There are 2 kinds of Republicans, rich and ignorant. Open your wallet to see which you are.

Remove limit of up to $117,000 so that all income is taxed for Social Security and we begin to solve a whole lot of benefit retirement issues very quickly.

GITERIGHT,
Before it's all said and done - idiots like you are going to be BEGGING to have a Democrat in the White House & incontrol of both the Senate & House!!!

Did you know if Republicans/Tea Partiers had been able to accomplish the policies they've been pushing for the last 10-12 year - this country would be in a total mess (much worse than Bush left it).

First of all, if Republicans had their way - this is what America would look like today:

We'd be engaged in several wars - yes, we'd be back fighting terrorists in Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria & probably even Russia & maybe even a couple more wars...

Republicans would pass laws to benefit the rich so they can move even more jobs overseas.

There would be millions more people out of work & needing unemployment, food-stamps, welfare & Medicaid assistance - people, children, the elderly would actually BE STARVING TO DEATH...

Many more schools would be forced to close their doors because Republicans would cut public education funds & give these funds to charter schools - which would make it impossible for poor kids to get an education...

Republicans would pass laws to eliminate any & all regulations - so this would give banks, wall-street & lending institutions free reign to bankrupt this country just like we saw under the Bush administration.

Our water supply would no longer be safe to drink because of all kinds of sewage being dumped into the rivers, streams & oceans.

If there is any industry left in this country - factories will again begin polluting the air from the exaust from their factories.

There would be absolutely no safe working environments in this country. Yes, if you were were lucky enough to have a job - you would be entirely on your own - you would need to enter the work place at your own risk - because your employer would not give a hoot if you got injured or killed on the job... All your employer would be concerned with is his bottom line - the hell with your safety!

So, if you really want to go back to REPUBLICAN POLICIES which bankrupt & nearly sent this country back into another GREAT DEPRESSION - then go ahead & keep trashing Obama & the Democrat policies - which has pulled us out of THE GREAT DEPRESSION OF THE 30'S & also the GREAT RESSION OF GEORGE BUSH JR...!

Why oh why are Republicans/Tea Partiers so very very very very DUMB & STUPID??????????

That would be easy since Obama isn't corrupt. You may not like the black president . That doesn't make him corrupt.

That's what that GED diploma will do for ya.

You do realize Obama makes Nixon look like a saint. Misplaced white guilt will keep Obama from impeachment. It's a crying shame the first black president had to be such a phony imposer.

So any comment on the fact that under "Dubya" , the country was laying off 800,000 per month?

No?

I' didn't think so.

Just another day of C'Ville Topix with racist hicks like Jerry and Comrade who posts under so many names yet claims to only use one.

Keep posting Jerry & CW.

You keep getting Democrats!

Thank you both!
