No urgency in finding fix for COLA cuts, military leaders say

Ms. Fox acknowledged that the military can’t maintain the rate of growth for benefits and finding efficiencies alone can’t pay for the military’s ever-growing personnel costs with budgets so tight.

“Slowing the growth of compensation is another piece of this. We’re not cutting compensation; we just need to slow the growth. We can’t continue to grow at 40 percent above inflation,” she said. “At these budget levels, everything is on the table.”
