Bush Threatens To Veto 0.5 % Pay Raise For Our Troops
I could not believe my eyes either. After sending our troops into the middle of a civil war in Iraq without the body armour and equipment they need, this President is threatening to veto legislation that will give many of them an extra $6 a month. That is about the cost of an extra value meal.
And that is not all Bush opposes in this legislation. He also is against an extra $40 allowance for military survivors and price controls for prescription drugs under TRICARE. Shameless.
