Presidential Panel: Freeze Military Pay


Really need to wake up people and see all the damage that is going on. They are going to tax us to death and take away a bunch of shit.

Isn't there also a proposed cut for Federal Employees pay? Also aren't military troops Federal Employees? So in a round about way aren't the troops getting a quasi "hook-up?" It's tough times out there, the military shouldn't be exempt from what everybody else has to experience.

Yea they should be exempt, because they are already poorly paid as it is. Brand new private makes just over a grand a month, 1500 in a combat zone.

That is crap, the military doesn't get paid enough as it is. If the president doesn't want a coup d'etat on his hands they will set this bill aside and forget about it.

"commissions" and "panels" make all kinds of recommendations.... your thread title is misleading. This is obviously not something that the "president and his staff" have done. Now, if they sign off on this recommendation, then flame away.

if they cut housing pay for the military, I will end up evicting 15 people on my community. Lower ranking Military dont get paid shit and need that allowance. It will be a bad people will lose their homes.

Also this. There's plenty of reasons already to dislike the current administration ... we don't need to manufacture reasons

That BS debt panel didn't mention anything about ending 2 wars either. ::thumbs down:: However, they did mention eliminating tax deductions and flattening the progressive tax table. ::thumbs up::

...but at what cost?

What pisses me off is we buy 145 million dollar jets by the boat load but we can't pay our military people a good or above good amount.
Stop buying these over priced products made by contractors who are raping the government and reallocate the money to our troops.

I agree, I couldn't afford a $400.00 a month home when I was in the military. it is hard to take care of a family and live off that kind of pay even with a housing allowance. I had trouble feeding my ex-wife and I because the electric bill, rent, and car payment were almost everything I made for a month.

People dont know unless they have served. Cutting federal pay is different. They have choices they can quit and find another job. You cant quit the military.
