    First, you have to pay to get any benefits, granted it is only 100 bucks a month for 12 months.

    Second, it helps Marines, Soldiers,Sailors and Airmen who were willing to give years of their lives away to serve the country.

    The G.I bill paid for my father to go through mason school, after he got out of the Marines, it is a next step for a great many people. For Christie to give a shout out to a great program like that I find admirable.

    •  Exactly, G. I. Bill was not an entitlement. You (1+ / 0-)

      earned it by serving in the Military, but it was not something you had to build yourself.  It was thru efforts of all of us paying into the system to insure the military was taken care of. This is the part

      of I built it myself  
      campaign I don't get.
