Good Point

~Limbaugh Nailed This One~Love him or loathe him, he nailed this one right on the head..........By Rush Limbaugh:I think the vast differences in compensation between victims of the September 11 casualty and those who die serving our country inUniform are profound. No one is really talking about it either,because you just don't criticize anything having to do with September 11.Well, I can't let the numbers pass bybecause it says something really disturbing about theentitlement mentality of this country.If you lost a family member in the September 11 attack, you'regoing to get an average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimumguarantee of$250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.?If you are a surviving family member of an American soldierkilled in action, the first check you get is a$6,000 direct death benefit,half of which is taxable.Next, you get $1,750 for burial costs.If you are the surviving spouse, you get$833 a month until you remarry. And there's a payment of$211 per month for each child under 18. When the child hits 18,those payments come to a screeching halt.Keep in mind that some of the people who are getting an average of$1.185 million up to$4.7 million are complainingthat it's not enough.?Their deaths were tragic, but for most,they were simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.?Soldiers put themselves in harms way FOR ALL OF US, and theyand their families know the dangers. (Actually, soldiers are put inharms way by politicians and commanding officers.)We also learned over the weekend that some of the victimsfrom the Oklahoma City bombing havestarted an organization asking for the same deal that theSeptember 11 families are getting.In addition to that, some of the families of those bombed in theembassies are now asking for compensation as well.You see where e this is going, don't you? Folks, this is part andparcel of over 50 years of entitlement politics in this country.It's just really sad. Every time a pay raise comes up for the military,they usually receive next tonothing of a raise.Now the green machine is in combat in the Middle East whiletheir families have to survive on food stamps andlive in low-rent housing.?Make sense?However, our own US Congress voted themselves a raise.Many of you don't know that they only have to be in Congressone time to receive a pension that is more than $15,000 per month. And most are now equal to being millionaires plus.They do not receive Social Security on retirement becausethey didn't have to pay into the system. If some of themilitary people stay in for 20 years and get out as anE-7, they may receive a pension of $1,000 per month,and the very people who placed them in harm's wayreceives a pension of $15,000 per month.I would like to see our elected officials pick up a weaponand join ranks before they start cutting out benefits andlowering pay for our sons and daughters who are now fighting."When do we finally do something about this?"If this doesn't seem fair to you, it is time to forward thisto as many people as you can.How many people CAN YOU send this to?****************************How many WILL YOU?
