House: Give loose change left at TSA gates to troop group

"If military action is worth our troops’ blood, it should be worth our treasure, too" "not just in the abstract, but in the form of a specific ante by every American." -Andrew Rosenthal 10 Feb. 2013

3 December 2013 - The House has passed a bill to donate the loose change collected at Transportation Security Administration check-points to the United Service Organizations, the private non-profit group that supports American troops.

The TSA Loose Change Act would give coins left at TSA gates to "nonprofit organizations that provide places of rest and recuperation at airports for members of the Armed Forces and their families." Currently, the USO is the only organization providing the types of services indicated in the bill's language.

Because no members requested that the votes be tallied, the bill passed unanimously without a roll call vote. read more>>>

RM: "We got a huge round of tax cuts in this country a few weeks before9/11. Once 9/11 happened and we invaded Afghanistan, we kept the tax cuts anyway.
How did we think we were going to pay for that war? Did we think it was free?
Then, when we started a second simultaneous war in another country, we gave ourselves a second huge round of tax cuts. After that second war started. The wars, I guess, we thought would be free, don`t worry about it, civilians. Go about your business."

"12 years also is a long time. We now have a lifetime responsibility to a generation of service members, veterans and their families." Dr. Jonathan Woodson 11 Sep. 2013: With 9/11 Came Lifetime Responsibility

As those hawks and oh so patriotic supporters loves their wars for free, especially the decades of results from!! As those served continue ignoring the issues, wealthy reaping profit off the no-bid war contracts to private corporations, of those sent to serve in, costs too much if recognized, for as long as they can!!

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
