    When you see; it is blinding. Military benefits cuts. Find your Representative; speak out.

    Take note. 1% pay raises will happen. Obama has already promised. During the shutdown 800,000 "NON" Essentials were sent home. What in the world has happened.

    Congress folk don't get a raise; nor have had one in 5yrs. They all need pink slips from the top down.



    Now tying this together. Not one word about "cutting" benefits to "NON" essentials. Not one word about cutting Congress benefits; Not one word spoken about firing 800,000 "NON essentials workers. Not one word spoken about all government workers benefits cuts.

    Goodness; when is enough' enough.

    "Federal employees who are considered essential will continue working. Those deemed non-essential — more than 800,000 — will be furloughed, unsure when they’ll be able to work or get paid again. Most furloughed federal workers are supposed to be out of their offices within four hours of the start of business Tuesday.

    The shutdown could cost the still-struggling U.S. economy about $1 billion a week in pay lost by furloughed federal workers. And that’s only the tip of the iceberg."
