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 Se ptember 11 casualty and those who die serving our  country in Uniform 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 by because it says something really disturbing about the  entitlement mentality of this country. If you lost a family  member in the September 11 attack, you're going to get an  average of $1,185,000. The range is a minimum guarantee of  $250,000, all the way up to $4.7 million.
If you are a  surviving family member of an American soldier killed 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 sc reeching halt.

Keep in  mind that some of the people who are getting an average of  $1.185 million up to $4.7 million are complaining that 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 they and their  families know the dangers.

We also learned over the  weekend that some of the victims from the  
Oklahoma  City  bombing  have started an organization asking for the same deal that the  September 11 families are getting. In addition to that, some  of the families of those bombed in the embassies are now  asking for compensation as well.

You see where this  is going, don't you? Folks, this is part and parcel of over 50  years of entitlement politics in this country. It's just really sad. Ev ery time a pay raise comes up for the military, they usually receive next to nothing of a raise. Now

the green  machine is in combat in the Middle  East while  their families have to survive on food stamps and live 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 Congress one 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 because they didn't have to pay into the  system.  If some of the military people stay in for 20  years and get out as an E-7, they may receive a pension of  $1,000 per month, and the very people who placed them in harm's way receives a pension of $15,000 per month.

I  would like to see our elected officials pick up a weapon and join ranks before they start cutting out benefits and lowering pay for our sons and daughters who are  now

 When do we finally do something about this?" If this doesn't seem  fair to you, it is time to forward this to as many people as you can.
