    I was trying to maintain a tight focus in this diary, so it doesn't sound like just another rant, but you're right that I shouldn't have passed over cuts in benefits for our brave soldiers and their families.

    So I'm adding a note about it, and Jesus Fucking Christ!

    If even Lindsay Graham is screaming about this thing, how the heck did they pass it?

    This week, Sen. Lindsey Graham (R) of South Carolina was particularly passionate. “Of all the groups in America you would go to and single out [for cuts] …we picked the military community,” he said Tuesday. Do you know how much a master sergeant with 20 years experience makes in retirement? he asked. Answer: less than $25,000 a year. The cut in cost of living (COLA) is the equivalent of giving up three years of retirement pay, he said.

      GOP eclipse Dems on this issue.
