Unbelievably stupid idea.
I thought as I got older, I would learn wisdom and patience, but the only thing I have learned so far is that I don't give a damn.

Nothing more than a scare campaign to counter any tax reform by Republicans as being popular :rollseyes:

How is it fake outrage? You do know there are at least 3 veterans currently posting here with left-leaning tendencies right...that Op himself is former Navy, dem4life was former Navy, Cautionary Tales is former Navy (man as a Marine, I am feeling positively surrounded by squids). You don't think as veterans their outrage is genuine? That fully half my son's platoon are Democrats who will at some point want to avail themselves of the GI BIll, and how many days have you spent in uniform?

Fair chance they are, good on them, but how do we know?

The military shouldn't offer to pay for college at all...

What if a soldier is not cut out for college, what if he/she plans to be a painter or carpenter after his/her service. Those soldiers who choose not to or cannot go to college do not receive the same benefits as soldiers who are able to and choose to.

You do know they can use the money at vocational institutes right? So you would deny those servicemembers wanting to expand their knowledge, sense of self, and financial foundation because some want to be paints and carpenters?

I bled for this country...but it's not enough to merit such a consideration? I took advantage of the Montgomery GI BIll, my grandfather and father both took advantage of it.

Oh geez spare us the melodrama...

It's an unfairly distributed bit of compensation to our soldiers. I would prefer they were are all just paid more....you got a problem with that?

I'd rather they go to college, unfairly distributed, how so? You don't want to go to an academic center of higher learning, you don't have to..you can go to a vocational facility to cut and shape wood or piping if you want.

Salaries only last long enough to pay that month''s bills...a degree helps them long after they hang up the uniform. Ask the other vets on here...a hundred bucks more in their paychecks a month..or a chance of going to college..
