  • Sooo ... it's not enough that our military do not have the freedoms we other citizens enjoy (like whether or not we want to move across the country next month, or want to refuse a dangerous assignment). It's not enough that their spouses and children make the sacrifices they do for the safety of all us civilian Americans. Is this how we are going to "cut spending" to fund the research for that mouse here in California??

    Is there NO priority list??

    Her husband is considering having military families start paying for their health insurance. As announced today.

  • Of course she is talking out of both sides of her mouth. One side says she/hub supports them, the other side says we are reducing funding for military and making them pay for their own health insurance. Hypocrite!

  • There is your number One Promise Mr. Teleprompter, A Transparent Presidency. That SOB even has his wife lying to interviewers now. He's not only good, he's fast and cloning himself in the form of his "lovely" wife. Your Narcissist In Chief, who hates the military.
