Pass the Hat to Support Our Troops!
Well, it appears that corporate welfare doesn't include our troops, who must participate in conservative-supported free-market economics. But every servicemember seriously in debt becomes a security risk and loses his clearance. That means he's not deployable overseas.
Meanwhile, Congress has taken forever to clean up payday loans (much longer than Internet-based offshort gambling by consenting adults).
So, what has Elaine Donnelly of the Center for Military Readiness said about this? Nothing, of course.
What can real Americans do to help? Give to the military charity of your choice, or just go ahead and directly assist any servicemember pay off debts or stay out of debt.
