Ryan and Military Pensions

Ryan and Military Pensions

Paul Ryan is being attacked because he included some minor changes in military pensions in his successful effort to pass a budget resolution.

Military retirees who are under 62 invariably (unless disabled) are perfectly capable of being employed and virtually  all are employed.

Yes , they received a pension for twenty years of military service. All that Ryan’s provision does is limit the COLA to 1% below inflation. It is a perfectly reasonable provision.
