A resolution expressing the sense of the Senate on maintaining the current annual adjustment in retired pay for members of the Armed Forces under the age of 62.
Expresses the sense of the Senate that: (1) retirees from the Armed Forces should not unfairly bear the burden of excessive government spending, (2) military retirees earned the benefits they were promised upon entering the military and it is the duty of the Senate to protect them, and (3) the Senate should seek alternatives to the provisions of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2013 regarding the annual adjustment of retired pay and retainer pay amounts for retired members of the Armed Forces under age 62.
