Feel Good Story: Deployment Discount for Military Wife With No Heat

Deployment Discount: Greedy 1%-er and business owner, who deserves to have the government confiscate his ill-gotten gains, actually helped someone? Someone tell Bernie Sanders.


From Fox News:

When a military wife’s furnace broke down, a Pennsylvania repairman stepped in and fixed the malfunctioning unit at a huge discount.

He charged her $1.

“He said that the $1 was a joke and to thank my husband for his service,” Bridget Stevens wrote in a since-deleted Facebook post that has gone viral.

Paul Betlyn of Moon Township’s Betlyn Heating and Cooling said the job normally would have cost about $150, but he gave Stevens, a mother of two, a “deployment discount.

“I’m not the hero here,” Betlyn told ABC News. “The deployed, they’re the heroes.”

Her husband, Bobby, is deployed overseas with the National Guard. So when she arrived home to a cold house one evening earlier this month, she called Betlyn, expecting to get an answering machine.

“Ultimately, Paul, the owner, answered and was very patient as he walked me through different things to do to try to get it back on,” Stevens wrote in the Facebook post.

But when none of Betlyn’s suggestions fixed the issue, he drove to Stevens’ house to look at the furnace himself.

God bless Mr. Betlyn, and Bobby Stevens, and may God continue to bless America.
