Let me see if I'm getting this, or am I too naive to believe we are all being too selfish? Are we so endowed within ourselves to really think we should be so entitled that we are hurting our own country?

I am a Navy veteran from 1951-1955, during the Korean Conflict. Back then they called it a "police action." Ha ha! 

I am so disgusted with our Congress, especially the Republicans, to actually consider themselves to be elitists. Give me a break!

Just what have they contributed to our fiscal disaster? Did they suggest a pay cut? No pay while off duty? A cut in their medical care or pension for serving just one term?

Now I see the plan to cut military pay for our servicemen and women!
