Email Your Representative and Senators to Reject the COLA Provision

#KeepYourPromise

SAMPLE EMAIL FOR REPRESENTATIVES & SENATORS

Step 1: Follow “Protect..Military Benefits”  or  “Keep Your Promise” to keep abreast of the latest changes.  Recommended Language for emails and Facebook (thanks for the help from MOAA) and a big thanks to Jeremy Hilton, the 2012 Military Spouse of the Year, for putting together this fantastic resource.

Step 2:  Write the following email to your Representative or Senator by using MOAA’s Automated Email System a quick letter to Congress.

If you have a few additional moments, please use the email below and please make sure that you fill in the blanks to make the letter fit your family (scroll down to locate your Representative’s or Senator’s email below).

 

Dear Representative/Senator {insert name},

We are a military family and your constituents. We are writing to ask you to join with us in defending our military men and women, our veterans, and the families that support them. Our servicemembers were made promises by our government when they swore an oath to defend the Constitution. That oath must be honored just as they honored their commitment to our great nation.

Our family asks that you take action to ensure that Section 403 of H.J. Res 59 is repealed immediately. In addition to significantly slashing the value of earned retirement benefits for current and future military retirees, disabled retirees, and surviving family members, this provision threatens long term readiness and retention in the uniformed services. We’ve included two recent articles which illustrate how our military and supporters are reacting to the vote to reduce military retirement COLA. These will provide you with a sense of the outrage and betrayal our community is feeling:

With the New Year, we hope you will start it off right by indicating your support for our military, our veterans, and their families by ensuring this provision is repealed immediately. We have had your back for more than a decade of war. Your vote to repeal this provision will determine whether or not you have ours and whether or not you will have our vote the next time you are up for reelection.

As a constituent, I am requesting you inform me of your position on this issue.

Thank you for your support.

Sincerely, {Insert your name} [Consider including a family picture]

 

SAMPLE LANGUAGE FOR TWITTER

Step 3: Follow up with Tweet:

    Dear Representative:

    Along with the standing request to defund welfare for 100% criminal illegal immigrants we the people imploring you to restore the apparent stolen benefits of our beloved 100% honorable military personel.

    We the people also are compelled to see that justice is followed through on with regards to a thorough investigation into the elligibilty of what is by all indications an unvetted candidate and that all initiatives of this current Executive Office Administration may be nullified and high crimes and misdermenors be duly prosecuted of the culpable individuals and affiliations.

    Please commence with a Congressional supeona of Vallerie Jarrett who should have Benghazi insight.

    You people sicken me! There is some bigger story here that you are not telling! At least half of the Senators listed would never vote against veterans benefits unless there was something rediculous attached to the bill. Voting these people out is not the solution if you’re electing Tea Party Candidates!

    1. Captain Ron

      Randy, before you start criticizing the Tea Party and Tea Party candidates, I strongly recommend you take the time to attend a Tea Party meeting in your area. What you will find is these people are not the radical nut jobs the lame stream media would have you believe they are. On the contrary, they are regular, down-to-earth, US citizens who are genuinely concerned with the misguided direction this government is heading. The Tea Party advocates three things:
      1. Fiscal responsibility
      2. Constitutionally limited government
      3. Free markets

      Tell me, which of the above do you not agree with?

      As for the ill-informed decision by Congress to pass a bill containing a slam on all retired military and disabled veterans, we, as constituents, must hold our elected officials accountable and make sure they hear our disgust regarding its passage.

    MR. CARL LEVIN AND MS. STABENOW: AS A VETERAN I FIND IT HARD TO BELEVE THAT THE LEADERSHIP OF THIS GREAT COUNTRY HAS LET US DOWN AGAIN. TAKING AWAY FROM US THAT HAVE GONE AND FOUGHT FOR YOU TO BE DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING GIVING OUR MONEY AWAY TO ILLEGE ALINGS FOR FREE IS UNACTIBLE PLEASE RETHINK WHERE YOU STAND ON THIS COLA PROVISION PLEASE REJECT IT. THANK YOU FOR YOUR TIME ROGER A. TRIPP US ARMY

    Ryan drafted the bill, Boehner pushed it, and House Republicans signed onto to it before it even crossed Reid’s desk, fully knowing that veteran benefits would be cut.

    Now Republicans are simply resorting to dishonesty and partisan politics, just like when they shut down the government and blamed everyone, but themselves.

  8. JA

    If you were a Veteran and had to experience what these HEROS did you would not be trying to cut benefits! In fact you yourself would feel it is owed to you. You all are a disgrace to this country!! Veterans and all service men and women deserve the world!!!!
