One Comment to “Sen. John “Rambo” McCain is cool with cutting military benefits”

  • My comment Senator McCain is do you really think by cutting our troops beneifits will help them and their families? And to include retiree’s. I don’t feel like the Military should be considered for the way to save money for our Nation’s Deficit. I feel like the money should come from anywhere but the Military/Tricare/Tricare for Life or anywhere else. These people put there lives on the line everyday in Iraq and Afganastan and you being a former POW in Vietnam I know you will agree with me on this. Thank You.
