I have seen a letter outlining military sequestration priorities.
DV (Distinguished VIP) airlift to the First Lady and President is totally exempt from Sequester cuts - or at least the direction from above is to ensure that the First Family does not feel any pain or delays in air travel.
The 89th Airlift Wing at Andrews AFB must provide service to Air Force One, Air Force Two, the First Lady, and First Family without any disruptions.
But, we furlough this hero's nurses and hospital care workers.
As I said before, no one cares. This nation shows little outrage for what is happening, and Congress could care less.
Back during the Gingrich-Clinton government shutdowns of 1994-95, every network was throwing a hissy fit because a school bus of minority children showed up for a field trip to the Smithsonian and were denied due to the shutdown. The media acted like it was the Holocaust.
Today, we are furloughing disabled combat veterans with Purple Hearts, stealing their pay checks, and there is not one lick of outrage.
Vets should walk into congresscritter’s offices and leave their prosthetics on the desk ... hopefully covered with the smell of piss ...
