Solid Words From Rush

With far left morons wanting to take more away from those who provide 24/7 protection to thier lives . Rush puts some facts on the table.

Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on
the head..........

By Rush Limbaugh:

I think the vast differences in compensation between
victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die
serving our country in Uniform are profound. No one is
really talking about it either, because you just don't
criticize anything having to do with September 11.
Well, I can't let the numbers pass by because it says
something really disturbing about the
entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a
family member in the September 11 attack, you're going
to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a
minimum guarantee of $250,000, all the way up to $4.7

If you are a surviving family member of an American
soldier killed in action, the first check you get is a
$6,000 direct death benefit, half of which is taxable.

Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs. If you are the
surviving spouse, you get $833 a month until you
remarry. And there's a payment of $211 per month for
each child under 18. When the child hits 18, those
payments come to a screeching halt.

Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting
an average of $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are
complaining that it's not enough. Their deaths were
tragic, but for most, they were simply in the wrong
place at the wrong time. Soldiers put themselves in
harms way FOR ALL OF US, and they and their families
know the dangers.

We also learned over the weekend that some of the
victims from the Oklahoma City bombing have started an
organization asking for the same deal that the
September 11 families are getting. In addition to
that, some of the families of those bombed in the
embassies are now asking for compensation as well.

You see where this is going, don't you? Folks, this is
part and parcel of over 50 years of entitlement
politics in this country. It's just really sad. Every
time a pay raise comes up for the military, they
usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now the
green machine is in combat in the Middle East while
their families have to survive on food stamps and live
in low-rent housing. Make sense?

However, our own U.S. Congress voted themselves a
raise. Many of you don't know that they only have to
be in Congress one time to receive a pension that is
more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to
being millionaires plus. They do not receive Social
Security on retirement because they didn't have to pay
into the system.
If some of the military people stay in for 20 years
and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of
$1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them
in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

I would like to see our elected officials pick up a
weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out
benefits and lowering p ay for our sons and daughters
who are now fighting.
" When do we finally do something about this?" If this
doesn't seem fair to you, it is time to forward this
to as many people as you can.

Something to think about next time you hear a leftist complaigning about how over paid the military is.
