Bush & DOD BudgetFrom: "DocMelson.com" <email@example.com>
Bush has put the DOD budget on hold for the next two years pending a full
study of DOD needs and policy development regarding the desired mision of
the military forces of the United States.
action may or may not have adverse effects upon current legislation being
developed in the Congress for righting the wrongs inflicted upon the
military retirees and veterans by the inactions of previous
legislation, if passed, would, of course, be targeted for implementation
sometime after the two year moritorium on DOD budget requirements. We
could still get the laws passed this year, but they would not be fully
funded until two years hence. I hope that is the plan of this
administration and Congress and not what many are now
fearing...a total abandonment of the retirees and veterans by way of more broken promises.
I am wrong, I fear for the consequences that will result from an angry
and aroused group of military veterans who
have once more been betrayed by their country.
the way comes to an end, then change - having changed, you pass through."
