Limbaugh Nailed This One~

 

 

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


 

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 million..

 

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.. (Actually, soldiers are put in
harms way by politicians and commanding officers.)

 

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 US 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 pay for our sons and
daughters who are now fighting.
