Over Taxed, TX  
November 10, 2011 11:33am
 
Who said anything about cutting Veteran's benefits? I sure didn't say it and don't believe we should. That's not my argument.

Let me say it again. I voted against Prop 1 because it raises my property taxes to pay for yet another exemption or extension of an exemption to help out veteran's spouses a little bit. OK, it's not much, but my point is that this stuff adds up over time and adds to an already over burdensome taxation. It is the proper role of the federal government to help them out, but as you say, it's not their priority. That does not make it the role of the State of Texas to pick up the tab for a commitment that the Feds owe to Veterans and their spouses. I'm sorry, but it's not right for politicians to buy votes with my hard earned and rapidly dwindling life savings. Because, you and I both know that's what this is all about.

By the way, I do happen to know a bit about the civil service system and veterans preference points, because I have actually used that benefit myself. As you say, it didn't help much because of all the other preference points and lists of the special protected groups. So, we agree on that too.

As for the 45 miles you have to drive to use the commissary and Px, I have a 70 mile round trip to go to Costco. So what? That was your choice to live where you do. Just gas up on post and you'll save a few more bucks there too. Heck, stop off at the Class 6 and maybe by the time you're through, you will have paid for your trip.
