We have to speak up and get this dictator impeached.
Enough of the un-American BS

I'm sure he will require them to pay taxes next. It was $250 just a couple of years ago. Couldn't believe they cut it $25. Very petty and very sad.

Makes a lot of people sick.
The sad part is this administration does not give a dam.
They want it the way they want it and piss on everyone else.

Divided is not even what we are, because 68% are now pissed.
Time to DEMAND Impeachment !

lol, Check your facts. It was passed by most everyone(BOTH SIDES!!!) of them bungholes in DC . AND it actually stops combat pay for the soldiers getting combat pay THAT ARE NOT in a combat zone. If you haven't been over there as a combat soldier and seen what I am talking about.... well maybe you shouldn't be talking about it. Ask a grunt what he thinks about the soldiers in Kuwait getting combat pay. lol, expect a mouthful of profanity. And not everyone should get it because they are in the military. Look at it this way... airborne soldiers on jump status get extra pay(jump pay was $150 a month). Soldiers not on statues do not get it. Why give it to soldiers if they are not earning it while OTHERS ARE? Now if you want to say pay the whole military more, sure but combat pay is earned. Hell, anyone of us could be gone tomorrow in another 911 why not give everyone combat pay. Yeah, that makes sense. \:\/

The Dictator is too well connected to be impeached. Until the senate is more Republican than Democrat no impeachment proceedings will occur.

I guess an argument could be made for that. Why not prorate it while your at it. Only pay combat pay when your outside the wire and of course being shot at not just riding down the road in a hummer? If I did the math right it comes out to 31 cents an hour. That would really help cut defense spending.

Like I stated IMO very petty.

It's not about being outside the wire or riding in a hummer. That is where they have suckered you in to believing their story. There were/are lots of soldiers (all ranks) abusing the system to collect combat pay. Why let them abuse it? Talk to some soldiers that have been over there and know what is going on. All soldier(not just combat arms) in combat zones are getting combat pay. Anyways, let me go be petty with my dog.

I was hoping someone who knew the facts first-had would comment on this. Thank you gentlemen, for that and much else.

Another angle is why are we haggling our soldiers for pennies an hour while the domestic entitlements to moochers and illegals are in the billions?

??

I kind of have an idea how it works since I have been deployed down range 3 times into actual combat zone and received combat pay. Also spent time in Qatar, Kuwait, Egypt, Somalia, and Jordan and received combat pay. $250 a month extra, so what. Again an extra $7.50 a day for being in BFE surrounded day in and day out by people who would like to kill you.

Abusing the system? \:\/

Actually felt safer down range than I did at most other locations deployed. At least I was armed up.

Just my opinion but any Muslim nation should be considered war zone.

Spent 30 days at a AB in a Middle Eastern country. One of 8 US troops deployed there. We slept in shifts and didn't go anywhere alone. I have never been more afraid for my life but by these standards I wouldn't have collected the $7.50 extra a day.

Petty , cheap, wrong, sad take your pick.
