  •  McCain's also collecting (5+ / 0-)

    Social Security, a full disability pension from the navy, and a navy pension.  He's also a liar who came out today with a bandage on his cheek and said that his doctor took a bit of skin, as she always does, just to make sure everything was o.k.  Now I just read on my homepage that McCain had a growth on his face and that's why his doctor did a biopsy.  Everything was o.k., which is reassuring, but his lying about it is not reassuring.

    •  The disability was granted (5+ / 0-)

      after he was certified to fly again, too.

      That alone is suspicious, and I'm sure that any other regular Joe was certified for flight status would have a hell of a time getting 100% disability.

      I wonder how many military people realize what this guy has gotten away with.

      •  $58k Per Year Tax-Free (3+ / 0-)

        He gets over $58k per year tax-free from his "disability".  That would be almost $100,000 income for a normal person.  What injury makes him so disabled that he can still fly a plane but needs to collect over $58k per year tax-free?

        He's got a 100% PTSD certification and shell-shocked Johnny wants to have his finger on the button!!

        I don't think so!

          and I won't contest it IF the military is as generous about those 100% disability designations to our every day Iraq veterans.

          Fry, don't be a hero! It's not covered by our health plan!

          •  Is that worth $58k tax-free per year? (0+ / 0-)

            McCain can't lift his arms above his shoulders.  That's worth $58,000 per year tax-free?
