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.
Military should say: no pay, no play.
The parasite class, who pay nothing are never cut?
Our military, who sometimes make the ultimate payment for freedom, are first to pay?
That picture is disgusting and an insult to dog lovers.
If the Government is shut down, then we obviously can’t pay the Secret Service, or the White House Staff, and they will all be sent home.
Air Force One ? Marine One ? Grounded. The Official Presidential Limo: parked, Zero can rent a car from his personal funds. . .
This is just so much more lies and BS.
In the 90’s the government “shut down” for 21 days. My father was a civil service employee back then. My grandmother and several aunts were on social security.
NOTHING HAPPENED. NONE of the social security was delayed. ONE of Dad’s checks was slow. ALL back payments were made very quickly. I called Dad to ask if he needed some bridge money and he appreciated the offer but laughed.
The Corps power plants kept running, the locks kept going, the dam kept controlling flood water... NOTHING HAPPENED.
If anything happens this time it is because the pencil necked geek, queer bastard obama wants it to happen.
ObamaCare is the end game. If it gets fully implimented then conservatism is dead as a political force in our country. Pelosi was willing to let dozens of democrats in the House lose their seats to get it passed. Obama will sacrifice whatever he has to for it to get implimented.
We are not a third world banana republic. Our military will not revolt. And Obama knows it.
This military member would be proud to get his pay check days or even weeks late if it got rid of Obamadoesn’tcare.
You’re trying to get me excited.
It’s all part of Obama’s Scorch-America policy. Get ready for temper tantrum.
I want to see someone take away the keyys to AF1.
Even if the military pay gets stopped and that vast organizations grinds to a whimpering halt, I’ll bet the EBT cards continue to get filled and work just fine.
Just like with the sequester. It will normally not hurt anyone, but bitter Obama directs cuts with the intent to hurt, even though they are unnecessary.
The concept there is important to get out to people: that Obama wants to, and does, *hurt* Americans so that he can win a political fight.
Ask them, have you ever heard of any president willing to hurt Americans for petty political goals?
Truly he and those around him are an evil lot, and up to no good.
Shut homeland security, the justice department, education, EPA,IRS, Commerce, White Hut Staff all thorns in America’s side.
Michell’s does not need as many as she has either.
Haven’t seen her by her husband’s side lately...two jerks in their own little worlds??
I hear they’re fighting again...
Nah, they'll waive that and pay those guys. I know a few people who were not affected by the sequester. They were deemed too important. They are the surveillance guys.
Yea, all 50 of them. They are not as numerous as the media claims. There's a few we are positive are flamers but so far they have kept to themselves.
“O always goes after the military first. “
I’d like to see it the other way.
Your day may come! ;)
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.
But let me assure the voters that there will be no disruption in my tax payer vacations of $100,000,000.00.
Good plan. When do we get started?
P, that is reinforcement for your mistake? The article nowhere say “debt ceiling increased”, it is about the CR passed by the House.
Debt ceiling increase fight is coming up in October.
Maybe, but I’m not looking at it that way. I’m looking at it as a typical political threat taken to an absurd level, as in:
“Cut the budget and the airplanes will be grounded.”
“Defund any aspect of Obamacare and the government will shut down. The military won’t be paid.”
Or, if you want to go international, how about the recent Syrian and Iranian threats, “If the US does anything to harm our interests, we’ll bomb Israel.”
I don’t get it, the left hates the military so I’m guessing the idea of them not receiving pay excites them to no end.
Nothing makes sense anymore, or I am just so far removed from the thought process of a typical commie that I can’t connect the dots.
I’d like to see the military.....’react’... to that.
at the current borrowing rate of 200 million $ an hour, 24/7, we cant even pay the interest on the debt
If it happens that the rest of the world cuts us off and pulls the plug, we could be in serious trouble, A poop storm of biblical proportions. Our military wont even have enough gas to get troops back from Afghanistan, we wont be able to just go bomb everyone into submission to keep loaning us money
Coups don’t happen when all the generals are politicians hand picked by the dictator.
The only way the conservatives can win this argument is by slapping the snot out of anyone who interupts them when they’re speaking the truth that it’s the democrats and obama who are not paying the military. They’ll be interviewed constantly. But they’re going to have to play rough to be heard.
That’s going to reduce his leverage with Iran an Syria....
If we learned anything from this defunding fight, it's that pressure works.
Yep, and thanks for the link.
A tyrant indeed!! He’s a foolish,arrogant,totalitarian dictator!!! I said from day one that president obama is not who he appears to be.He is not at the intellectual level of any other president we’ve ever had.I truly believe he is just a pawn in a bigger game.The only thing that keeps him in office is his charm.I’ll at least give him that.There are to many things that point to terrorist.I realize (sadly)that most Americans are not very intelligent,or maybe just weak.It pains me to say it but it’s true.I mean come on people you’ve put him in office TWICE!!!! America looks weaker by the day,as no one stands up for what is right.It is just a matter of time before our country as we know it no longer exists.There will be no one left to blame but the fools who put him in charge of our once strong an courageous country.I know this is going to sound crazy,and people will doubt my sanity, but in the end I know I’ll be right, obama is almost definitely the anti-christ.We, people, are nearing the end.
If he stops paying the military, they should simply lay down their weapons and walk off the field.
Better yet, they should KEEP their weapons and walk off the field, take the first flight home, and use those weapons to restore our constitutional republic to its original format.
This tyranny cannot stand.
Legally non-discretionary spending has to be met before discretionary spending. The defense budget is discretionary spending.
