Skip to comments.Obama: Military Will See Disruption in Pay if Congress Doesn’t Raise Debt Ceiling, Pass Budget
Posted on 09/21/2013 5:56:03 AM PDT by Errant
U.S. military personnel will face a disruption in pay if Congress doesnt quickly pass a budget and raise the debt ceiling, President Barack Obama warned in his weekly address Saturday.
The government will shut down. So will many services the American people will expect, Obama said, speaking of the consequences he says the country will suffer if Congress cant come to an agreement on a continuing resolution bill. Military personnel, including those deployed overseas, wont get their paychecks on time.
On Friday, the House stripped funding for the presidents landmark healthcare law from a continuing resolution bill to fund the government. If Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reinserts the funding when the bill reaches the Senate, which he most likely will, some Republicans have threatened filibuster it.

I want to see a disruption in tee times.
So the media will pretend that a budget wasn’t sent that funded everything but ObamaCare...and that the choice to fund everything else, or withhold funding everything else, is Obama’s alone...
Welcome to Nazi Germany, folks. The media, including Fox News, is completely government-”owned.”
I want to see the power cut off at the White House promptly at midnight October 1.
Try it, Obamahole.
Dare you, you limp waisted idiot.
During the last government shut down, I seem to remember the military getting paid.
How about all the White House costs be cut October 1. Sorry no more staff, no more parties, no more travel. Just security and electricity.
Notice he says nothing about the welfare rats?
And if we don't pass another raise in the debt ceiling .. NOTHING will have changed ... right ?
How can NOT passing a new debt ceiling cause us not to pay the military ?
By now, we know what he meant when he said, “Punish your enemies.”
You’re very kind. Security AND electricity?
Ok no electricity. I woke up feeling generous today.
Here it comes....no SS checks for you!!
Ridiculous...reduce the congressional staffs...Congressmen/women dont’ need 50 slaves.
One of these days he is gonna wish he had the military on his side.
Oh wait, all the gays in the military will stand behind him. So he’s got that going for him.
Nice comment by the leader of the armed forces! Eager to throw his own people under the bus!
BTW, isn’t this how military coups get their start?
oathkeepers remember benghazi...fast and furious...IRS...wire taps...AQ/mussie bros....and on and on.
The mechanics of disbursements from the Treasury in the absence of a budget or CR are up to the Chief Executive.
Whatever happened before is irrelevant. We're not in Kansas anymore.
And no more free obama phones, free housing, free food, free medical care, free education, free sports, free transportation, or Obama cash for those who won’t work - paid for by the other half, forced to work, and made to give up half of the fruits of their labor, in the form of burdensome taxes, to pay for it all!
Well, I guess some folks just won’t get paid for awhile. The ghetto rats being amongst them.
It’s the right time, and the right fight.
“BTW, isnt this how military coups get their start?”
Interesting point. I guess dear leader isn’t thinking about that.
Congress just voted to raise the debt ceiling. The ball is in Harry Reid and Obama’s court.
They think that just because America elected them that we are all stupid.
Bacially this child is saying if he doesn’t get his way, he is going to hurt us and destroy the country. Then again, if you leave him to do as he pleases, he punishes us and destroys the country.
Wake up America. We have a Tyrant on our hands.
Didn’t they install solar panels on the WH roof recently? And, of course, solar panel advocates know that the sun always shines 24/7 so they should have plenty of electricity. Of course if they wanted to make doubly sure they have electricity they could install some turbines on the WH lawn - Heaven knows there is plenty of hot air in DC to ensure they are operational 24/7.
“O always goes after the military first. “
Somebody published a poster of a terrified dog with a gun to its head. The caption read, “Give us our funding or the dog gets it!”
Further proof that the left doesn’t care about what the majority of the public wants. They want control of every facet of our lives and this is their best chance to take over the healthcare industry, and more importantly to them, the revenues that come with it. Sadly, millions of Americans look at the medical insurance companies as big, evil corporations who need to be taken down. Welcome the Democrats and their promises of universal healthcare and doing away with the “big business” insurance companies. Exactly what the low info idiots want to hear.
So he’ll stiff our own troops, but he’ll find the money to arm the Muslim Brotherhood. Got it.
Clown Prince nobama is upset. The nitwit can’t have his way. Waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
Really? My Son in law hasn’t been paid for TWO MONTHS. They are living off savings and probably some credit. I hope his back pay is paid up before Obama shuts down pay for HIS military. If they don’t get paid, he owns it.
He always sticks it to the military and the elderly, when they reduce spending money.
The first and most important duty of the federal government, according to the Constitution, is to defend the nation from all enemies, both foreign and domestic. Naturally, that is the first thing the Leftist enemies of freedom find to cut, as they already have done in the sequester. Their most important duty is to get re-elected by giving out taxpayer-funded freebies to their voting base.
We’re on a runway train headed down a long neglected track and going like a bat out of hell toward a missing rail.
So we take down the media. One advertiser at a time. We pick one, boycott it and once they pull their advertising, it is off to the next.
See what we did for Chik Fil A? That’s our power, yet we only use it when the left threatens us. It is time to go on the offensive.
don’t spit on Superman’s cape.........
don’t bite the hand that protects you
They probably have all sorts of solar panels, backup supplies, and probably even have their own power station.
Just messing around like an idiot again lol.
(Don’t come and get me NSA)
And there will be no interruption to her regular deliveries of truffles, Kobe steaks and lobster.
Makes one proud to be an
American Obamican, doesn't it?
They could always just put Biden on a human-sized Hamster Wheel.
The kenyan is very adept at Voo Doo Economics....
It's not like the government stops receiving revenue if the debt ceiling isn't raised...
Bills will still be paid...
Military pay should be the LAST item not paid...
I couldn’t agree more. BOYCOTT the libs. Show them our power. Yes, you can live without McDonalds for one month. They will be begging us to come back. There aren’t enough liberals to make Starbucks profitable. SHUT THEM DOWN!!!!!
Obama said raising the debt ceiling will not increase spending by a single cent.
At least this ONE sentence isn’t a lie. It will raise it by trillions of cents.
Impeachment right after that.
Albert, they are not working on the debt ceiling yet. This is the CR.
Ha! He's not going to mess with his block!
Wow Obama must really be panicked!
Nobama tried that last time and got his butt scorched. Prolly won’t hear him going after SS this time.
What “services” would we citizens miss if gubmit shuts down for a few days? Nothing that will generate doom, probably nothing most will even notice, that’s why they have to threaten the Mil. Talk about pissin of the wrong people.....
