    Obama had money for everything but the servicemen and women soaking up the direct results of his and Hillarys messy foreign policy disaster. What a disgrace! These servicemen should recieve a 10 percent pay raise. As far as I am concerned, they are the ONLY federal employees earning their pay, and the only held accountable.
