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.

I believe he said the 3% raise was "sufficient".

Ooops, forgot the DICK part.

Perhaps they'll have the chaplains at Walter Reed offer discounts on prescription drugs when you convert.
