What is your timeline for judging this question? The date for its close has now passed with no action being taken to cut pay or benefits.

I doubt that individual military members pay or benefits will be cut if Congress fails to adopt the Congressional committee deficit-reduction recommendations. Defense programs or projects would probably be hit instead.

Report: Wall Street fills debt-panel’s coffers
The finance, real-estate and insurance sectors have pumped nearly $41 million into the campaign accounts of the 12 members of a so-called supercommittee that must decide whether to increase taxes on financial interests to help reduce the deficit, according to a report being released today by two liberal-leaning groups

Sen. Max Baucus, D-Mont., who chairs the Senate Finance Committee, was the biggest recipient of financial sector money, collecting nearly $6.2 million since 1989, the report from Public Campaign and National People’s Action shows. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., was second with $6.1 million. Rep. Jeb Hensarling, R-Texas, who was elected in 2002, was the top House recipient on the committee of the industry’s money, collecting nearly $3.9 million.
