My Comment: Further evidence that this administration is decimating the military and our veterans and those things we hold dear. Everything from Christianity in the Military, lifting don’t ask don’t tell, doing away with the DOMA, and the list goes on and on. John Shorey & others say that this man is leading America straight into the Great Tribulation, it was his purpose to destroy America. I agree. Remember T.D. Hales Vision of America? (more)
(Fox News) A final effort by Senate Republicans to halt cuts to pensions of military retirees failed late Tuesday, after Democrats blocked an amendment to the controversial budget bill.
The two-year budget agreement, which cleared a key test vote earlier in the day, was expected to get a final vote no later than Wednesday.
Ahead of the final vote, Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., tried unsuccessfully to use a parliamentary tactic to force a vote on the amendment, which he wrote to undo the cuts for military retirees.
A provision in the already House-passed bill would cut retirement benefits for military retirees by $6 billion over 10 years.
