Pentagon asking Congress to hold back on generous increases in troop pay
from The Washington Post
The Pentagon, not usually known for its frugality, is pleading with Congress to stop spending so much money on the troops. Through nine years of war, service members have seen a healthy rise in pay and benefits, with most of them now better compensated than workers in the private sector with similar experience and education levels.
