Let me get this straight: Capitol Hill, which is filled with $200,000-plus a year politicians — many of them multimillionaires who retire with most of their salary intact and only lose their jobs only if they get voted out of office — is telling our military men and women that they are the ones who have to take a cut in their pensions ("Senate advances bipartisan budget agreement," Dec. 17)?
Who makes the greater sacrifice: Nancy Pelosi and John Boehner dodging each other in the halls of Congress, or our military men and women dodging bullets in the sand pits of the Middle East?
