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.

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.....
The bill does fund the military. It delays only one item, and that is ObamaCare. ObamaCare is broken, causing economic chaos, and absolutely unable to be paid for.
It is an expense beyond our ability to pay. Therefore, we shouldn’t pay it. It should be set aside for future payment, when the nation can actually afford it. (never)
So, if the Senate and the President choose NOT FUND THE GOVERNMENT which this bill does, then that is on them.
I am really getting sick of dear leaders Sierra Bravo as he goes after the former best military force on the planet. Lost 20% of my pay due to the sequester this summer and now I get to loss my retirement for 25 years of service in uniform protecting these bastards so they could subvert everything I believe in.
Meanwhile I watched the Wing were I work lose its ability to project airpower anywhere in the world when the aircrews lost their combat readiness. There are still trying to get back up to speed when cleared to fly back in August. This jack wagon couldnt lead a group of men to a whore house with $500,000,000 in his pocket (thanks to the printing presses of helicopter Ben).
Congress just voted to raise the debt ceiling
Think you need to double-check that fact.
If they did it must have been during the night.
Last time Obama, that he cannot guarantee that Social Security checks will go out as as planned .Now he wants to hold the military pay hostage..
It shows 0 is either totally incompetent, or worse, a traitor and purposely endangering our nation, and thereby peace in the world.
Here we go again. nobama must assume the average American’s memory is about a week long. He was whining about the same thing last year over the debt ceiling.
“Women and children and small dogs will be hurt the most. Warren Buffet will be forced to eat ground beef instead of Wagyu. This is a crisis of historical proportions.”
Yep, heaven forbid some S.O.B. (Son of Barrack), doesn’t have an 0bama phone to call his homies...
Congress came to an agreement on CR. They passed a bill funding the government. Obama is the one shutting down the government. You'd never know that from his be-sprinkled shills in the media.
