Walter Reed hospital workers receive furlough notices

I spoke to a nurse I know who works there. They are still in shock - the people who care for our wounded heroes are taking a 20% pay cut, yet the Senate just passed a "Farm Bill" that costs $955,000,000,000 - and 80% of that is for "free" Food Stamps to be given away to one in seven Americans (one in five households).

So, we have $764 Billion to give away for Food Stamps, but we are stealing the salaries of nurses to wounded warriors to the tune of a 20% pay cut.

How "great" is Sequestration now?

This is an outrage. Neither party cares, especially our narcissistic homosexual in the White House and our alcoholic Speaker.

45% of the civilians in the Dept of Defense are military veterans who wore the uniform of this nation. Hagel's furlough (brought on by Sequestration) targets them heavily. It does not matter if you are a disabled combat veteran or not, you still get furloughed.

A friend of mine is severely disabled from an explosion in combat, and he has a Purple Heart. He got a furlough notice as well.

Yet, Sequestration EXEMPTS Entitlements like Food Stamps, Medicaid, and TANF welfare.

Shame on this nation.

If they were MORE TRUTHFUL, the money is being
diverted to al Qaeda in Egypt, al Qaeda in Libya,
al Qaeda in Indonesia, al Qaeda in Pakistan,
al Qaeda in Egypt, al Qaeda in the USA (DNC),
and AS OF THIS WEEK: al Qaeda in Syria.

All of their mosques are being rebuilt instead
of OUR VETERANS.

It also EXEMPTS President Jackass from spending $100 million on an African vacation.

Shame on this nation these politicians.

The political elites are to blame.

sequestration = obama

So many words to confuse a simple issue.

obama is the enemy of the state and should be hunted down like Bin Ladin

If you never hear from me again .. that statement will be why.

Talked to a DoD Firefighter last night — furloughs are about to begin...meaning they will have to work overtime to replace the individuals furloughed - and when they are off - those others will have to work over time to cover the shift...makes perfect sense to pay EXTRA in overtime to make a political point!

Can we IMPEACH OBAMA NOW (ION)!!!

Wasting our tax dollars on the Sunni Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and Syria.

Free tanks, airplanes, cash, and our blood to the Sunni Muslims on their Jihad .

now the soldiers will just have to learn how NOT to be sick or injured one day a week. And get up and do everything for themselves. Thus the sequestration is helping them actually helping them to recover faster. (sarcasm) and to be patience patients.

Communists leader King Obama will continue pressing this lie with hope it catches a few more uninformed ignorant Americans. And we have tons of them.

Horse crap. They have been talking about closing Walter Reed for years, I thought.
