There’s one thing you don’t do as President of the United States: you don’t go after our military. These men and women put everything on the line to defend our nation. They deserve our support and respect, not to mention the resources to live their lives.
Under Donald Trump, the service members saw their first pay increase in many years. Trump even secured new funding to keep our Armed Forces the best in the world. But this Christmas, Joe Biden is turning on our soldiers. He gave 48,000 a lump of coal—in the form of a pay cut.
From Fox News YouTube:
Candidate for U.S. Senate in Pennsylvania, Kathy Barnette, joined ‘Fox & Friends First’ to discuss the decision, saying arguing it can be added to the administration’s ‘list of grievances.’
Biden cut a cost-of-living stipend for 48,000 troops, just because they live in “pricey areas.” We might remind you that the military doesn’t live where they choose. They are stationed in cities all over the world, based on what their bosses tell them. So, not only is Biden forcing these families to live in expensive areas, but he’s cutting their pay to afford it.
This is the same “president” who routinely insults our men and women in uniform. He slammed them for not applauding his wife one time. Another time, he insulted their intelligence for not laughing at a joke he butchered. Now, he is adding insult to injury by cutting their pay.
Let’s not forget this is the same president who wanted to spend trillions on “green” energy and migrants. A president that tried to create new welfare programs that would bleed working Americans dry. A president that is trying to cancel student loans.
Yet he can’t provide a few measly dollars for our troops? Is shameful a strong enough word for that?
