" How about a petition to keep the White House's hands out of the military's pocket?"
The military doesn't have a pocket. Neither does Obama.

The only pocket that the government dips it's hand into is that of the taxpayer.


By 'military" I meant the collective total of servicemen, each of whom is a taxpayer.
And when military benefits are cut back, guess whose pocket is hurt by it.
