He must be pretty powerful to get a comment section removed? I didn't see anything that would be other than someone's opinions.

Some of the posts were from veterans, if I recall correctly. They certainly earned their freedom of speech..........and were willing to give their lives to protect all of us.

Well I guess he has the pull to get away with sticking it to every veteran and their families. Tried to get his office to tell me when he has a public meeting where he could be asked why he sold out so many of his constituent, but they are not talking.

The congressman has done everything to help us middle income tax payers. We are tired of people getting government checks with no work performed. There are too many people making a better living than most while sitting at home playing video games. Life is hard and we have all went through traumatic experiences and have to get up every morning to make a dime. There are too many veterans that are able to work and have become a victim to the entitlement generation this country has spawned. If a true physical disability prevents a man from working than so be it. Pull yourselves up by the bootstraps and make a living like the rest of the veterans. The Vietnam generation had no support from the country and came back home and we're spit on and chastised. They were given nothing. These are hard times for everyone and if a one percent reduction in pay is too hard for you to absorb you might want to consider getting a job! You think I am alone in this thinking but if you continue you will see the public turn on you like the Vietnam generation.

So, service men who pulled 20 to 30 years in the military and paid for retirement benefits from their income should not receive them? What kind of patriot are you? Many of these veterans died for their country, and many of them came home wounded. It never fails to make me sick to see the flag waving conservatives sending off our finest to war, and when they come home, if, they come home, and if they are wounded or need help....too bad. Most of them are not able to get a decent paying job after giving the most of their life in service to our country. Many of them do work and should still receive their benefits. Shame on you!

Common Man, if you are a veteran thank you for your service!

Your words however do not reflect the opinion of all Vietnam Veterans, I assure you.

If you are a veteran, and have escaped Agent Orange illness, severe PTSD, then be thankful. But also, not so quick to judge your peers! Many have already died due to Agent Orange, etc. Others are struggling with cancers and horrible illness.

you are a disgrace to humanity, to America and certainly to God. I pray that Gods wrath fall on you and your family during the holiday season. To the rest of you, Merry Christmas.

. Roe even voted against a lousy $1 billion bill to help returning vets find jobs. NOPE. FUCK em.

Bush and Cheney sent them to Iraq for absolutely no reason. They had nothing to do with 9/11. Hussein even condemned the act. Iraq was not connected to al-Qaeda whatsoever. He called it IRAQI FREEDOM, SO WE KILLED A MILLION MEN , WOMEN AND CHILDREN AND NOW THEY LOVE US.

RON RAMSEY WANTS VETS DRUG TESTED EVERY MONTH BEFORE RECIEVING BENEFITS IN TENNESSEE. GUILTY BEFORE PROVEN ONNOCENT. NEVERMONF THEY GAVE THEIR LEGS TO THEIR COUNTRY.

BUT THEY ARENT THE PROBLEM. YOU ARE.MYOU VOTED FOR THEM. I CAN ONLY HOPE ITS YOUR KIDS THAT THEY SEND NEXT TIME. THISE IN THE MIDDLE EAST HABE NO QUARREL WITH IS EXCEPT THAT WE GO THERE TO OCCUPY THEM. MOST OF THEM DONT EVEN KNOW WHERE WE ARE. SO WE KILL THEM ...ITS CALLED PRO-LIFE and Christian values.

I'm with Mohammed Ali and I'm 100% Christian with a personal relationship with Christ. The church is lost and tennessee is run by a Ron Ramsey mafia and Phil roe is a cowardly pink. No offense.

Wait, so we shouldn't get the pension we were promised after 20+ years of service? By the way, I do have a job after retiring from my military career but feel I earned every dime and deserve every cent of my pension. I think if Roe and the rest of these scumbag congressmen wanted to look somewhere to save a few bucks in the DoD they should have started with defense contractor weapons contracts which were over budget by a staggering $295B. Keep in mind they're only saving $6B by breaking their promise to their veterans which is just a drop in the bucket compared to what they're giving the jokers padding their pockets.

Military retirement pensions are NOT being cut. Instead, the gov't is reducing the annual cost of living adjustment (COLA) for military retirement pensions. For example, a $2000 per month pension is supposed to receive a 1.5% COLA increase which is an additional $30 per month to total $2030 per month. The COLA cut will reduce the COLA increase to 0.5% per month resulting in the COLA increase being $10 instead of $30 per month to total $2010 per month.
Lower or higher pensions will of course be affected accordingly.

As a military retiree, I don't agree with it but I'm also not losing any sleep over it. If Washington remains true to character, everyone will push to quickly rescind the COLA cut just so they can pat each other on the back and proclaim how well they look out for the military folks.

We give $800 billion per year to the contractors to make everything from the weapons to the airplanes to the $600 toilets. A veteran with both legs blown off gets $28,000 per year and is usually shunned by the good Christians of upper eat tennessee. A shithole of disgusting human waste. By the way, that veteran has to wait two years to get his first disability check,
You fucking people are absolutely insane to allow this kind of crap, the pope is 100% right. You literally worship the wealthy. You are fundamentally screwed up in the head.
That average military lobbyist who takes Phil to lunch makes 700 times what the vet with no legs and you ignorant, self-absorbed, tea bagging traitors don't see anything wrong with that.

The U.S. military is an all-volunteer force. Those who join know the risks and have only themselves to blame if they end up injured or killed.

Most likely, the cuts will "trickle down" to those most vulnerable, the disabled, elderly, and children. They aren't able to fight back and rarely have anyone to fight for them. They can barely exist and any cuts can send them straight into disaster. What a wonderful country we have! Bah Humbug!

Our military is a volunteer force, who risk their lives to save your sorry a--! They are promised certain benefits for their service, and if we as a country choose to renege on these promises, you might have to get off your fat a-- the next time and risk everything to protect yourself and your family. Think about it! For sure, you have no love for your country or fellow man from your postings.

Republicans are selfish pigs who vote for corporations and the wealthy. One poster said they "helped the middle class". They have been hoodwinked if they truly believe that. They need to look at the programs used by, and taxes paid by the middle class, and they may see their error in thought. If someone in our district votes Republican (which seems to be the norm). They are either rich or stupid. I certainly do not see that many rich people around here. Roe sux, and is a Republican corporate lacky who is a sorry representative for the people of our district. If you think he cares about you you are mistaken!!!

Anyone who has honorably served our country can look at the "judge it"s above and see how much your fellow Tennesseans honor your service. Be sure to join them in continued support of Roe and his ilk.

You'll have to excuse me for not feeling all warm and fuzzy about the military "risking their lives to save my sorry azz" because the military failed to save the azzes of almost 3,000 people on 9/11 when it was caught with its pants down.
