I’m tired of politicians trying to pay for the wealthy’s tax loopholes on the backs of government employees and retirees.
Since President Barack Obama took office, the number of federal employees and the deficit have gone down, yet Republicans continue to lie and say both have gone up. Now their horrible budget by Rep. Paul Ryan proposes drastic cuts to the benefits for which retired public employees worked so hard. If Republicans had their way, I would see an increase of $250 a month for medical coverage.
Meanwhile, the Democrat in the White House says he’s open to changes in our cost of living allowance.
To ask those who have worked for our country to sacrifice more — after we stopped working — while tax shelters and corporate jet loopholes remain untouched is asinine and unfair.
