Veterans Summoned to White House, Told to Brace for Cuts

BECKLEY -- Leaders of veterans groups met with administration officials Tuesday to discuss what is at stake if Congress cannot come to a consensus.
President Obama has said that if a default occurs, the administration will be forced to prioritize who gets paid.
That means those receiving veterans benefits, social security, unemployment insurance, tuition grants, food stamps, and child care subsidies may be forced to compete for coverage.
If that happens, and we default, we would not have enough money to pay all of our bills bills that include monthly Social Security checks, veterans benefits, and the government contracts weve signed with thousands of businesses, said the President.
Each day without a deal, veterans at the Raleigh County Commission on Aging worry whether their check will come in the mail next month.
The fact that the President comes out and threatens to take away our social security checks and not pay the veterans is despicable, said David Hern, a veteran fought in Korea.

A vet can't come up with worse word that that? I can.
Probably nothing that isn’t family-friendly.
How DARE he? God, I cannot stand this despicable individual.
Scare tactics resorted to by a man without leadership skills.
Pitiful, inept, effeminate. He is all of those.
And, of course, Obama and the members of Congress will also not got paid! (sarc)
It's the Chicago way.
I take that back. He is not to be pitied.
Hussein believes in kicking a guy when he’s down, because trying it when he’s up could result in Hussein getting the kicking.
A complete misuse of the term ‘default’.
Veterans “Summoned” to White House
That word again.. my first thought is any veteran asked to go should tell Obama to F-— Off, Pound Sand, Bite Me, Eat Sh-t an Die etc.
I can’t imagine how far down the road we will be paying the medical costs of the War against Islam long after it is over; it is winding down now, but will drag on as long as nobody in charge will admit that it failed and accomplished nothing.
It is difficult to rationalize let alone understand to the average six-pack worker that if you reach a certain huge debt without money to cover payments all you have to do is go ahead and take on more debt. I think many people do indeed live by such behavior. As individuals they do know to whom their money is owed. However, in the case of the USA Who knows who are the real parties holding the debt. We had better find out very soon.
What a liar!!!!! SSI,veteran’s pay,military pay etc is taken care of.Those who will be cut short are the bueracrats and favored programs of the left.The President is trying to use scare tactics to try and force people to his side.
The fact that the President comes out and threatens to take away our social security checks and not pay the veterans is despicable, said David Hern, a veteran fought in Korea...
YOUR HATRED FOR VETERANS AND OLD PEOPLE WILL BACKFIRE, HUSSEIN!
Marlon Brando, One-Eyed Jacks
O can choose who he wants to hurt to push the republicans buttons. Since we’re borrowing 40 cents on every dollar, when Timmy prioritizes payments, it’ll be sure to hurt republican interests.
We elected this turd. Never again. It is the embodiment of ‘in your face’ thuggery.
O = CHICKEN LITTLE!!!
Distributes talking points designed to panic their members
Implicitly admits payments for veteran's benefits and social security benefits being made each month, from borrowed money
Demands vet groups join lobby for $17 TRILLION debt ceiling to support entitlement spending
No, the idiot in the white house gets to pick who gets paid. That is why you are seeing bills quickly being pushed through Congress telling him what to pay first.
waiting for the Obama press conference with kittens held over a mincer, cant be too far off, he’s getting close to the “do what i want or the kitty gets it”.
You don’t see him cutting any of his so called “Zars”, nor Mooooooooooochelle dropping any of her many “assistants”.
I too loath that little SOB (Buckwheat) and can’t wait for the day he is gone.
BILLIONS FOR JIHAD!
Obamas 2009 Supplemental Appropriations for Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Pandemic Flu was revised and passed by the full committee.
It gives billions http://creepingsharia.wordpress.com/2009/05/13/obamas-supplemental-bill-passes-gives-billions-to-enemies/
of U.S. taxpayer dollars to countries and entities that support Sharia law and/or harbor, hide and support those who want to destroy the U.S. and our allies.
Read the summary from David Obeys office that was quietly released last week with nary a word from any media.
$3.6 billion, matching the request, to expand and improve capabilities of the Afghan security forces
$400 million, as requested, to build the counterinsurgency capabilities of the Pakistani security forces
Afghanistan: $1.52 billion, $86 million above the request

Lebanon: $74 million
International Food Assistance: $500 million, $200 million above the request, for PL 480 international food assistance to alleviate suffering during the global economic crisis
Refugee Assistance: $343 million, $50 million above the request, including humanitarian assistance for Gaza. Funding for the UN Relief and Works Agency programs in the West Bank and Gaza is limited to $119 million (Note: Gaza = Hamas)
Disaster Assistance: $200 million to avert famines and provide life-saving assistance during natural disasters and for internally displaced people around the world, including Somalia, Zimbabwe, Ethiopia, the Middle East and South Asia
Peacekeeping: $837 million for United Nations
peacekeeping operations, including an expanded mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo and a new mission in Chad and the Central African Republic
Department of Justice: $17 million, matching the request, for counter-terrorism activities and to provide training and assistance for the Iraqi criminal justice system
The mainstream media remains silent on this but the International News has now picked up the story http://www.thenews.com.pk/top_story_detail.asp?Id=22164
and then there is Obamas $108 billion IMF bailout scheme http://michellemalkin.com/2009/05/13/obamas-100-billion-imf-bailout-scheme/
in addition to the Supplemental.
And THIS is what Obama is doing to American taxpayers:
THE BIGGEST TAX HIKE IN AMERICAN HISTORY:
Obama gives your tax dollars to rebuild Muslim mosques around the world
ACCORDING TO THE ASSOCIATED PRESS, THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION WILL GIVE AWAY NEARLY $6 MILLION OF AMERICAN TAX DOLLARS TO RESTORE 63 HISTORIC AND CULTURAL SITES, INCLUDING ISLAMIC MOSQUES AND MINARETS, IN 55 NATIONS. See the State Department document here.
O = CHICKEN LITTLE!!!
And the rest of us are headed to the lair of Foxy Loxy.
If our S-head president stiffs social security payments, veterans payments, etc., advertising should point out clearly to the seniors and vets who screwed them.
I think it would be S-head’s worst political decision ever.
I have come to hate not only obama, but thode who voted for him as well.
The lying sack of sh** knows he won’t have to cut those services.
That post should be available for free to EVERY TEA party candidate in the country next fall!!!!!!!!
FIRST, you stop paying Reps. and Senators and their staff. Many of them are wealthy on their own. Most of them love queers though, they’re usually refered to as democRATS. See what we’ve come too??
All I can say to the President is I Dare You! Go ahead and cut Vet and SS benifits. It’s your call!
Summoned? Was this so that He could speak unto them?
It's time to really start pushing that line. THEY are the ones that are responsible, why not start eliminating their checks first?!
Right. Cut where it hurts and is most visible. BUT, overlook all the waste, duplication, mismanagement, nepotism, fraud and malfaesance, etc. in the administration of unnecessary and gratuitous entitlements!!
What a guy!!!
That said, survey after survey has found that people aren’t blaming him for any of this, even though it would be his personal decision to cut things like veteran’s benefits and Social Security.
And, sadly, the Republicans probably won’t do the type of advertising campaign that would be necessary to make people wake up - the GOP is too busy having the usual internecine warfare to spend any time fighting the real enemy, Obama. Also, of course, Obama owns the press, so any news that comes out about this is so skewed to support him that it’s no wonder people are confused.
If he does go ahead and do this, there has got to be some way to make it very clear to the public that it was his decision and his choice to do so (heck, even many of the Dems don’t want it).
nobama hates you, hates your family, hates Free America, hates Americans, hates the Constitution and hates the Bill of Rights. nobama is a hate crime foisted upon America. nobama is the Destroyer.
Everything nobama does is intentional.
God help us all.
Notice he didn’t call the UN in and tell them the same thing.
Wonder if all the welfare money will go out on time?
The people will be forced to determine who remain alive.
Threats go both ways
There is a day of reckoning coming soon and I fear that it will not be pretty.
Obama threatens cutting benefits for veterans but not Planned Parenthood. What a despicable creature.
No one knows what will happen when we default. What we do know is that Obama will do his best to make it worse.
Obama’s trying to rattle the quite powerful Veterans Service Organizations and coopt them into attacking the GOP on the debt ceiling.
He will make as much political capital out of it as he can. Remember: Never let a crisis go to waste.
When your base is illiterate and dependent, you can do that.
Obama Tells Vets Eating Isn’t As Important As His Reelection
..he makes a speech Tuesday about calling your Congresscritters......then the next day threatens vets...hmmmmmm calculated?...you decide. His recent awarding of CMH’s at the WH is done with politics in mind, not with Reverence and Honor. The scumbag is the lowest of the low.
Now they are on record.
“the administration will be forced to prioritize who gets paid”
People will ask “Umm Why is the Department of Labor getting paid and my Veteran pension check is not in my mail box?”
What you said.
But if cutting is needed let us get belly up and do it like men and not whine like this.
CMH..=MOH...me fingers work faster than my mind without coffee and blood pressure raising comments....*grin*
Joe the Plumber disagreed with him and hit pieces on him made all the news. The Representative from South Carolina spoke the truth about him and was severely chastized by the Congressional Republicans and I haven't heard from him since. joe Walsh? There is a hit piece about him posted on this forum from the Chicago paper.
From this point in time and continuing through the election, things are going get very nasty and and probably very violent.
