Troops get pay raise

WASHINGTON -- Military members received a 3 percent pay raise effective Tuesday, as President Bush urges Congress to revise some provisions regarding Iraq contained in the fiscal 2008 National Defense Authorization Act.

The president authorized the 3 percent pay raise in an executive order. The act includes authorization for a 0.5 percent additional pay raise for U.S. troops, but the president has, for now, elected not to sign the defense authorization bill in its present form while Congress is adjourned, a practice known as a "pocket veto."

But if you make some financial resolutions, and you abandon them, you could fall short of your long-term goals - such as a comfortable retirement.

If you listen to some tell it, all of our houses are worth about 10 bucks. If buyers wait a little longer and look a little harder, they can probably find one just like it for about five.
