Military families have just been punched in the face!
Military families have been punched in the face by our House of Representatives. The House has passed a bill to be sent to the Senate that would approve a 5% reduction in BAH (Basic Allowance for Housing).
According to a recent Pew Research Report, serving in the military was “practically a requirement for serving in Congress.” As recently as the early post-Vietnam era of the late 1970s, a combined 77-percent of the members in the House and Senate had prior military service. Today, however, only approximately 20-percent of our political representatives have military experience. This means are politicians are out of touch with the needs of military families and veterans.
Other projected cuts include cuts to military commissaries (have they seen grocery store prices)..... Cuts to tuition assistance for active duty.
According to Military by owner: They are out of touch because they are without having experienced moving cross-country every two to three years and the resulting financial hardships that come with said moves, most notably spousal employment, military families can easily discredit our representatives as being out of touch.
If this is passed through the Senate Military families will be KO'd once again..................
