    Tuition Assistance suspended...medical benefits next?

    http://www.examiner.com/article/obam...-union-workers

    My problem with this article, though...it say active duty medical will go up. Go up from what? I haven't spent a dime on healthcare or pharmaceuticals since I joined.

    Anyways...I don't put much faith in The Examiner or The Free Republic sites, but I googled it and saw this same story was posted a lot to other small time news sites.

    You forgot to add retirement benefit to your title. They are aiming to cut the military retirement program as well. How deep? Who knows. All I know is a majority of 30 and under military voted for Obama twice so I guess these cuts are what they wanted.

    Elections have consequences.

    You realize of course that Cali is one of the most veteran-friendly states in the Union, right?
