A group of House Republicans have proposed a plan to offset the costs of relief and rebuilding after Hurricane Katrina that includes trimming military quality-of-life programs, including health care.Jesus. Cutting health care while shutting down schools on military bases? This is going to dump tens of thousands of children in to the local school system with no warning.
Possible sources of funding cuts to free up money for Katrina relief include reduced health benefits, consolidation of the three military exchange systems and the closure of the military’s stateside school system.
Anyone else remember when Bush said "Help is on the way!"? It was supposed to signal a new, "responsible" administration that would take care of the military, in contrast to that pansy Clinton. I wonder how many Republicans are left in the military today?
