: My nephew recently returned to Afghanistan for his second
: deployment. A few days ago he went to the mess hall only to find
: it locked and posted with a sign explaining that, due to budget
: cuts, breakfast would no longer be served.

: On that same day, it was reported in the media that members of
: Congress would be receiving an automatic pay raise they had
: budgeted for themselves. Every citizen of the United States
: should be outraged by this! If we cannot afford to feed our
: soldiers, we certainly cannot afford to increase the salaries of
: our “political elite.”
