Veterans Groups Say Military Cuts Should Prompt Obama Budget Veto


Ahhhhhhhhhhhh, it feels good to be king, if they would only believe in me then I could lead them to the promised land of collectivism.

Two veterans groups demanded Thursday that President Obama veto the budget bill Congress passed earlier this week, saying that the cuts to military retirement benefits — which even the bill’s authors now admit were a partial mistake — are an insult to former troops.
“As commander in chief, President Obama is the leader of the nation’s armed forces and he has a duty to protect the interests of all military members, both active and retired. He needs to veto the bill,” said Gary Stubblefield, a retired Navy SEAL commander and chairman of Special Operations for America.
Another group, the Fleet Resource Association, told The Washington Times on Thursday that it is also asking Mr. Obama to veto the bill.
Mr. Obama has previously praised the agreement, and the White House gave no indication on Thursday that he’s having second thoughts.
But the veterans’ retirement benefits cut has dinged what was being billed as a major bipartisan compromise, reached by House Republicans and Senate Democrats.
