  •  How about we ask every candidate to sign a pledge (0+ / 0-)

    to vote to restore federal and military pensions?

    •  I hope this is fixed before the 2014 elections. (0+ / 0-)

      I hope we can get some progressives on board... some of those folks in the controversial ad above. Some of them are working on it already, the question is only if they're working on real possibilities. Getting anything to pass this Congress is difficult. Getting them to rewrite something they already passed? Wow. That will be a miracle.

      •  Unfortunately (0+ / 0-)

        I think the chances of that are very low.  The day before it passed I asked a Marine wife I know to call a couple Senators.  She hadn't heard about it, despite having a deployed husband with more than 16 years in, living on a large base, having a politically connected mother, and being management at the same utility I am (with large numbers of ex-Navy personnel).
