Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz seems to be at odds with her boss about the sequester that is currently cutting the pay of 1000 Florida National Guardsmen by 20 percent, who are tasked to respond to natural disasters...

The Obama Administration is misleading Congress and the American people when it asserts that it plans to maintain a strong national defense. On February 13, 2012, President Barack Obama unveiled his fiscal year (FY) 2013 defense budget request.[1] The request comes on the heels of the January 5, 2012, release of a new strategic guidance outlining the nation’s defense policy.[2] The numbers in the budget submission reveal that the nation’s defense is the Administration’s lowest budget priority among the major responsibilities of the federal government. The budget submission also reveals that the Administration has proposed defense funding levels that are inadequate to maintaining the U.S. military capabilities described in the defense strategic review. ~ Source Heritage Foundation

Well, even she knows that Obama has just wasted 100 million taxpayer dollars on a PHOTO OP vacation to Africa. He visited three countries where US interests are ZERO. She's a pol and would have preferred that some of that money go to FLA NG members who actually earn it.

Debbie is just putting on a show. She could care less about the Florida National Guard.

Besides, they only get federal money if they’re on Title 10 orders or on full-time orders under Title 32. 1000 is a whole lotta AGRs and ARTs.
