GOP Loves The Military SO MUCH They Want New Enlistees To Pay For Their Own Benefits

President Twitter has been tweeting all day about putting  “America First.” He seems to be rallying the drooling masses for that 100-day marker. A lot of his tweets were directed toward Democrats and the impending government shut down. Don’t you just love how he likes to blame Democrats when the Republicans are in control of both houses of Congress?

Three of his tweets were directly related to the military – and war – but, he just didn’t come out and say “war.” The Democrats apparently do not care about our military. Take a look at what all the dirty, dirty liberal scum are doing:

He wants to “rebuild” our military, and by that we can only assume he wants more weapons and boots on the ground. He really isn’t concerned about the actual people who are wearing those boots.

For as long as I can remember, we have seen ads about the opportunities that come from being in the military. One of those would be the GI Bill which allows our soldiers to attend college for free. It seems like a great opportunity to a kid whose family just cannot afford to send a child off to school.

Currently, the post-9/11 GI Bill offers full tuition to a four-year state college, plus a monthly housing stipend to any service member who spends at least three years on active duty. A new congressional proposal would change that.

This new proposal would deduct $100 a month from new enlistees’ paychecks for the right to access the benefit after they leave the ranks. Right to access. Congress wants to charge our military men and women $100 per MONTH every month to access the benefits they were promised.

Paul Rieckhoff, CEO of Iraq and Afghanistan Veterans of America, promises that his group will fight this.

Pushing this GI Bill tax proposal on troops in a time of war is political cowardice. Some politicians would rather make backroom deals than raise taxes or find other ways to support our troops as bombs continue to fall overseas.

Political cowardice. While Trump and the gang plan to screw over our veterans behind closed doors, he tries to brainwash his Republican lemmings that he is the best military president – can’t you just hear him saying that about himself? He wants those ratings – and he will say or tweet whatever it takes to make lazy readers believe him.
