Save GI 9-11 GI Bill sign now

U.S. Senator Daniel K. Akaka of Hawaii wrote the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Improvements Act of 2010 which has decreased BAH and/or funding, break pay and additional allowances to Veterans of Armed Forces and President Obama has signed it! As a Veteran of the Iraq War, I fail to see how this act "improves" my benefits when my hard earned BAH benefit is reduced by nearly HALF.

U.S. Senator Akaka's action clearly does not share a common goal and interest with Veterans. The goal of this Act is to save Congress's Budget. "The Congressional Budget Office estimates a potential cost of savings of $1 million over the 2011-2015 period and savings of $734 million over the 2011-2020 period." What this statement ought to say is "Congress estimates that former soldiers will be robbed of $734 million."

The purpose of this petition statement is to give voice to patriotic Americans who support our Troops and Veterans. This petition represents the common interest of EVERY Veteran, active military, future soldier, and citizen to inform our Congress that America loves and supports our troops and that we are NOT IN FAVOR of this Act and request the restoration of the V.A. BAH benefit to the way it was before passage of the Post-9/11 Veterans Educational Improvements Act of 2010.
