Where Do Voting Vets Live?

Email Email Print

This is a pretty interesting map for anyone considering the political consequences of the GOP’s abandonment of military retirees under 62 as well as of those on active duty intending to serve at least 20 years.

Note the number of vets in North Carolina, Virginia and Arkansas, to name just three of the Senate seats the GOP hopes to pick up in 2014.

I will post a longer analysis of the aftershocks among national security-minded voters of the military COLA cut later this week, but it is obvious that the House GOP not only worked a major injustice on career military but that it also did a major disservice to the party as well as these two voting groups –vets and their families/friends and active duty military and their families/friends– have no reason to believe that the GOP is intent on keeping faith with its national security promises.

The cut to the military COLA could be reversed in the course of a debt limit deal, but count on the House GOP leadership to be too stubborn to admit they fell on their face on this one.
