Time Is Running Out:
We have good news and bad news regarding the Obama-Ryan budget plan to cut retirement benefits for veterans.
The good news is that the Bipartisan Budget Act that they hatched last month was just an agreement on spending levels between Republicans and Democrats. They still have to actually PASS this trillion-dollar omnibus spending bill within the next week!
That means there is still time to convince them to restore the retirement pay for wounded veterans.
The bad news is that Rep. Paul Ryan (R-WI) is not budging on paying our vets the benefits they were promised.
Ryan told The Washington Free Beacon that the $124,000 cut in benefits that some disabled veterans will receive thanks to this proposal is "modest!"
They need to pay our vets!
Please send FaxGrams to the House Budget Committee immediately and demand that they restore retirement benefits to our veterans!
There are plenty of other things that could be cut from the budget without betraying the very people who have sacrificed the most for this country.
Illegal aliens rip off the taxpayers for more than $4 billion dollars every year, because Congress has refused to change the rule requiring a Social Security number to receive a child tax credit refund.
Congress will give more than $21 billion to the UN in the 2014 budget to "fight" the mythical phenomenon known as global warming.
They could even cut off Obama's slush fund that he has been using to deliver boxes containing hundreds of millions of dollars in cash to the Muslim Brotherhood overseas.
But so far, illegal aliens, global warming and the Muslim Brotherhood have proven to be more important to this Congress and Obama than our retired veterans!
This is outrageous and it's not right.
Out of everything that they COULD cut from the budget, they are choosing to hurt retired veterans by breaking a promise that was made to them.
Tell Congress to do the honorable thing and pay our vets what was promised to them! Use the form to the right to send your FaxGrams today!
Leviticus 19:13 states, "You shall not cheat your neighbor, nor rob him. The wages of him who is hired shall not remain with you all night until morning."
This biblical principle is very simple and clear to understand. If you hire someone to do a job and promise them a wage for that job -- you pay them for doing the job!
God views oppression of a worker by with-holding wages -- which is what Obama and Ryan are trying to do to our vets -- as theft, oppression, robbery and a sin worthy of damnation.
And don't believe Rep. Ryan's claims that this cut only affects working-age veterans (those who retire from the service while they're still in their 40s).
Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-AL) says these cuts even apply to disabled veterans who were wounded in combat!
There is still time to convince Congress to pay our vets! Please send your FaxGrams today and demand that they restore the veterans' retirement benefits that they're trying to cut!
Also, call your Representative and Senators directly at (202) 224-3121 and tell them to pay our vets!

Dear Chairman Ryan:
I am outraged that the $1 trillion omnibus spending bill will cut retirement benefits to military veterans, including wounded vets!
Meanwhile, illegal aliens are robbing the taxpayers of billions of dollars every year because Congress has refused to close a loophole in the Child Tax Credit. The United Nations will receive billions of dollars to fight mythical global warming. Obama will continue sending large boxes of cash to the Muslim Brotherhood terrorist organization this year.
Apparently those things are more of a priority for Congress than veterans who have to live in wheelchairs because they chose to serve this country.
I'd like to remind you that our veterans don't have an exemption from Obamacare like you do and most of them do not have a salary and benefits package that comes close to that which you and other federal employees enjoy.
A promise was made to these men and women and they served this country, often sacrificing their own limbs for their duty! Pay our vets!
