  •  The problem, of course, is not veterans benefits. (3+ / 0-)

    The problem is the number of veterans, because we simply have a bloated military. I'm more of a "tonight we are at peace with the world" (Jimmy Carter) kind of guy I guess.

    However, veterans deserve the benefits they have been promised. Just like anyone who agrees to do a job deserves what's promised in return. I feel the same way about SS and Medicare: I was born after Medicare and Social Security was the law of the land. I was born into a social contract. I have paid into it my whole working life. Don't move my cheese. It's MY money!
