    it is the benefits that are received after 20 years of service.  They want to move it from a defined pension (50% of base pay at the paygrade said military person retires at) to a 401(k) style rip-off.  

    I am sure that is more than this too.

      and the verdict was

      GIGANTIC FAIL!

      So we're gonna let the Republicans inflict that same FAIL on our career servicepersons??  WTF???

      America's LAST HOPE: vote the GOP OUT in 2014 elections. MAKE them LOSE the House Majority and reduce their numbers in the Senate. Democrats move America forward - Republicans take us backward and are KILLING OUR NATION!

        it were just Republicans who wanted to "balance the budget" on the backs of the military and veterans (especially veterans).
