He earned that pension through honorable service to his country as a Naval Officer. Why the hell should he give it up?!Originally posted by: jpeyton
Interesting that McCain still takes a $58,000 pension even though he and his wife are worth over $100 million, and yet he boasts on the campaign trail that he'd make his "well-to-do" cabinet members work without salary.
More of the same.
Would you strip any other veteran of their well-earned pension!?
Should millionaires be able to collect from the government?
Absolutely. Any work they do, they should collect compensation for.
It is McCain who said in a stump speech that he would make his well-to-do cabinet members work without collecting a salary.
So he believes millionaires should not collect from the government, while he still does.
