There are two odious parts to this scheme. The first is the flat lie that they never made the promise and the second is that benefit cuts are happening to Military retirees and not to the unionized public employees who contribute to dems.

With their infernal racial set-asides, racial quotas, and race norming, liberals share many of the Klan's premises. The Klan sees the world in terms of race and ethnicity. So do liberals! Indeed, liberals and white supremacists are the only people left in America who are neurotically obsessed with race. Conservatives champion a color-blind society. -- Ann Coulter

WASHINGTON President Reagan will ask Congress to cut veterans' medical benefits in a federal budget proposal that emphasizes military spending over domestic programs and allocates another $100 million or so for Nicaragua's contra rebels, it was disclosed today.
"We will be cutting a couple hundred million dollars, something in that nature," from medical programs for veterans, said James C. Miller III, the director of the powerful Office of Management and Budget.
But "any veteran who's sustained an injury or an illness connected with their service, of course, will be covered," Miller told ABC's "Good Morning America." He also said that "poor veterans will be covered."
Reagan's budget plan will be released formally Monday, and the New York Times reported today that confidential documents reveal the new spending plan proposes $1.8 trillion in military spending over the next five years.
The newspaper report also said the budget plan will slash federal farm aid by more than half and sharply curtail the growth of many domestic programs over the next five years.
The newspaper said the fiscal 1988 budget proposal totals $1,024.3 billion, with a deficit of $107.8 billion--just below the target set by law.
Reagan's proposed cuts in veterans' medical benefits will apply to those who earn $15,000 or more a year and do not suffer from serious medical problems related to their military service, Miller said
The cuts were mandated by the supercommitee, which is composed of democrats and republicans to reduce the deficit which was caused by Bush's tax cuts. If you don't want to cut's veterans benefits you should be willing to pay more in taxes as I do. Otherwise quit whining.
Everybody's worried about stopping terrorism. Well, there's a really easy way: stop participating in it.
