Lawmakers Introduce Bills to Reverse Rep Ryan’s Military Pension Cuts

I can’t imagine these cuts lasting.
Check it out:

Lawmakers from both parties introduced bills this week to repeal or reverse the cost of living adjustment (COLA) Representative Paul Ryan (R-Wisc.) and Senator Patty Murray (D-Wash.) heaved upon retired military personnel.

They pushed the cuts as a way to meet “$6 billion in sequester cuts to the Department of Defense’s budget.”

According to The Hill, Rep. Julia Brownley (D-Calif.) introduced legislation that will “completely repeal” the cuts to veterans’ pensions. In so doing she said, “These benefits are owed to them without equivocation. That is why I have introduced legislation to repeal the military retiree COLA reduction.”
