Re: Restore Expansion of Concurrent Receipt

Dear President Obama:

As your voting constituent, I write to strongly protest the Senate's action to eliminate the restoration of concurrent receipt from the HR 4213. This elimination continues to deny concurrent receipt to almost 500,000 military retirees retired for medical disability with less than 20 years of retirement service.

Even though the elimination of concurrent receipt was included in the President's Budget, the excuse given was that other money could not be found. Where did all the money for the stimulus and bailouts come from? As a full half of the stimulus money has yet to be squandered, I suggest a portion of these uncommitted taxpayer dollars be the source of the dollars necessary to fund the restoration.

I strongly urge you to initiate legislation to restore the concurrent receipt of military retired pay that is currently offset by disability compensation.

Respectfully,

Don Jensen
