One good step

According to this article*, the Bush Administration is looking to increase benefits to the surviving families of US troops killed in action to $250K from something just above $12K. I think that there's not much dissent in the country about the government somehow compensating the families of soldiers who give their lives for their country.

Now let's make sure that we don't have to pay much anyway by bringing our troops home.
