The budget proposal recently unveiled by Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) and Sen. Patty Murray (D-WA) has Obama’s fingerprints written all over it. It raises spending and taxes for the next two years while at the same time – and this is truly despicable – it cuts the retirement pensions for our military veterans. The Obama regime plans to spend close to $10 trillion in taxpayer benefits to illegal aliens over the next 50 years, while at the same time robbing the very people who have sacrificed the most for our country.
According to the Daily Mail, “Annual cost-of-living increases in most military veterans’ retirement benefits would be cut by 1 per cent, an amount that the Military Officers Association of America says could cost a typical former soldier or sailor $80,000 over a 20-year period.”
Senate Republicans must reject this plan. Please CLICK HERE to tell the Senate to vote NO on the Obama budget scam. You must send your FaxGrams to the Senate before Tuesday, December 17, 2013!
Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid (D-NV) has scheduled the Obama-Ryan budget for a vote on Tuesday, December 17, according to The Hill. In the meantime, Obama and the Democrat Party are trying to convince at least five Republicans in the Senate to break ranks and vote to cut veterans’ military pensions.
Pray For US is opposed to this budget agreement on biblical grounds, for the following reasons:
1. The plan increases federal spending which will no doubt increase our national debt, which has already exceeded $50 trillion when unfunded liabilities are accounted for. This will require more money to be borrowed from communist China and Saudi Arabia and will enslave future Americans to foreign powers. “The rich rule over the poor, and the borrower is a servant to the lender.” (Proverbs 22:7).
2. The plan fully funds Obamacare, which will pay for sex changes for the Democrat Party (a violation of Deuteronomy 22:5 and numerous other Scriptures), subsidized abortions and death panels for the elderly (“Thou shall not murder,” Exodus 20:13).
3. The plan breaks a promise to our veterans and steals (Exodus 20:15) from the retirement pensions that were promised to them. Jesus said in Matthew 5:37, “But let your ‘Yes’ be ‘Yes,’ and your ‘No,’ ‘No.’ For whatever is more than these is from the evil one.” It is nothing new for Obama to lie to our veterans and steal from them, but it is particularly heinous that House Speaker John Boehner and Rep. Paul Ryan scolded organizations like Pray For US after passing the budget and then proclaiming that the plan upholds “conservative principles.”
If you are disgusted by Obama’s actions to steal from retired veterans in this budget plan, please join with Pray For US and send FaxGrams to the GOP Senators before Tuesday, December 17, 2013 and demand that they vote NO.
