McNerny should be spending his time looking for ways to cut spending. But, alas, it's not in his genes. As retired military, his sentiment is appreciated. As a fiscally responsible citizen, I can't support his spending habits. Now is not the time to give raises to anyone... not even our deserving warriors.

Perhaps if we had to pay our warriors more, we would think longer before sending them into harm's way?

He voted for Obama care without reading the bill. No longer can he be trusted.
