REPEAL OF THE COLA

Does Membership in MOAA Matter??

* Following up on the below posting that discussed action underway to repeal the HUGELY unpopular proposal by the Congress to reduce annual COLA payments to military personnel under aged 62, the below link to an article from military.com verifies that such an action is imminent.

* In remarks on the webpage, "You guys have already won," Sen. James Inhofe (Okla.), ranking Republican, assured military association leaders who testified against the recent devaluation of military retirement as part of the Bipartisan Budget Act."

* Sen. Inhofe's reference was not only a testament to the unrelenting efforts on the part of MOAA to support military personnel, but it also reflects the pressure brought to bear on the Congress from the hundreds of thousands of e-mails sent in by MOAA members, and others, who subscribe to the weekly "Legislative Alerts" on the national website and enables sending communications to federal, state and local representatives to guarantee they understand the concerns of service personnel - active, retired, Guard and Reserve, former, and the surviving spouses of those for whom the Congress was getting ready to "break their promise!"

Thank you MOAA, and thank you everyone for answering the call to the Legislative Alerts on this issue.
