Joe Biden administration to cut military stipend for 48,000 troops in areas where cost of living is pricey

Fox News reports: "The Pentagon announced the change last week, which is expected to take effect Jan. 1 and will take the Continental United States Cost-of-Living Allowance (CONUS COLA) away from almost 50,000 troops.

Service members are only eligible for COLA when they are stationed in an area that has non-housing costs which are 8% over the national average.

Washington, D.C., and Boston were two of the locations that will no longer offer the COLA stipend in 2022." (source)

Commentary: this is complete nonsense. You don't cut the military stipend when cost of living is high, you give them more so they can live. These folks sign up to protect our country, so the least we can do is take care of them in response.
