Do YOU Agree With Obama's Pentagon That The 10,000 War Veterans Should REPAY Their Enlistment Bonuses
PENTAGON Forces 10,000 Military War Veterans (Many Disabled) To REPAY Enlistment Bonuses


I feel it is a total disgrace based on all the money and benefits Obama has been giving illegal aliens. It's ALL about Obama's needs for more votes for the DNC and Hillary.

Most soldiers aren't rabid liberals; therefore, they aren't liked by the DNC. Any chance to punish them is welcome.

It is atrocious. They should kick the illegals out and save a ton of money. This is Hillary Clinton's America and it will continue.

You may all have to pay back all those refunds from the IRS claiming it is a mistake and you can't fight the IRS. They will tell you that you must sell your home if need be and garnish your wages. The IRS and the government are too powerful to fight.

This is the new global America where the citizens have no power and the illegals can break the law again and again and be given much money .

It costs 64K to relocate just one Syrian to America. They need to collect money from all Americans to achieve their global goals.

That's not a matter of "Obama's Pentagon" it's a matter of the CA National Guard. The CA National Guard commander could just pull on his long pants and write off the debt. A federal court has already ruled in favor of the one Guardsman who actually took it to court.

If the military can spend $640 on toilet seats they should be able to honor their obligations to veterans.

NO-this was an employment contract and needs to be honored the same as any other. The incompetence of this administration should not be paid by men that put their lives at risk. Here's a thought-how about we let these soldiers keep what they are contractually obligated to, and take the balance out of the White House budget to pay for it?

It is disgraceful that they would ask for money back that they were told they were entitled to. We give millions of dollars unlawfully to criminals in prisons, who collect disability and medicare illegally. We give millions of dollars to workers on disability who are not disabled and working another job but Obama and his band of crooks will take money from those that can ill afford it, those that served this country and were given the money in good faith. SHAME! SHAME!

Take the money out of one of their pork barrel scheme.

Why don't you be man or woman enough to reveal your true identity before your amazing Reincarnation?



I agree it is not obama's pentagon. It is pentagon and government period. But seriously? Do you really think signing bonus is the welfare? Why don't you ask the welfare recipients to join the service and see what kind of answers you are going to get.

I volunteer at a VA hospital, we have this feed a homeless veteran program every weekend, majority of those who ask for free food are NOT veterans, they are civilians LOL Many veterans who volunteer there asked them to join the service, these homeless people said "NO, I don't want to die." LOL

Even the poorly educated know that this is Obama's hand-picked-Pentagon. Over Obama's 8 years in charge, Obama has fired EVERYONE in Pentagon leadership who disagreed with him. Obama has completed a Joseph-Stalin-type-purge of America's military leadership.


Even highly educated Liberal-Democrat-Progressives should know that fact by now.
