FR won't let me post the link to Military Times, but the story is there ...
I think they won’t bring it up. If they did, it would pass unanimously.
No more CRs from House until military funding bill is voted on.
So, democrats will not pay the active duty troops
purple lips is demanding he get his way or no way
The Senate acts as Obama’s shield (nothing gets to him thus he is blameless and he says he will veto such and such and thus the senate doesn’t bother bringing it up) and the Media acts as the Senate’s shield.
No matter what the republicans in the House do, they will be blamed, so they might as well go for broke! But there are members like Peter King, that stand with the democrats on all things.
Chuck Schumer: “we’re united. You’re not.”
Democrats care more about illegal aliens than American heroes.
Good. Let them alienate the military.
Now the Senate is holding the Military hostage ...
I guess this means that if Air Force One flies Obama to his pretend-work vacation in Bali next weekend, the military crew won’t be getting paid but Obama will be getting paid
Active Duty/Retiree ping.
Yes I think this will easily be the over-reach that will make even some of the media report honestly.
Fixed that for you.
But there's a bonus; Republicans don't care about Americans either — if they did we'd see something done about the state-sponsored terrorism incident Fast and Furious, the Benghazi incident, the IRS scandal, the NSA scandal, the Tax-code, and "immigration" (read invasion) troubles.
This makes complete sense. 0’s “as-well-funded force” is already well compensated, and their “pay” won’t be affected by any federal shutdown.
Bali is Hindu - not Muslim. They hate 0bama.
I hope the pilots get the flu and can’t fly.
fyi obama spent a 6 month “sabbatical” in Bali supposedly writing his book “Dreams of my Father” (the one that Ayers wrote for him maybe while obama stayed out of the way)
This period of his life is among the mysteries we don’t know anything about, like what he did there and why he went there and who supported him
the active troops should just not do anything today...eat, sleep, run guard duty of course, but little else.....
They already have.
that is just not how the military mind is wired, they will do above and beyond what is expected or demanded of them, and they will find a way to take care of their own
they are not civilians wearing camo
They are not even at work until 2 o’clock today and didn’t work yesterday.
...at 30,000 feet.
they don’t vote democrat anyway. They lose nothing by ignoring the military.
My son is active. We’re both unhappy about this.
Despite both my senators being functional illiterates, this will positively draw calls to both of them.
When they did this in 1978, the flights and med care for congressmen and senators was quietly shut down, congressional wives were turned away at the door and told to seek care elsewhere because there was no funding to cover them. There was also no funding for boondogle flights for congressmen. In a couple of cases where the “rulers” tried to force the question, aircrews and hospital staff called in sick. Commanders at the time were behind it; now, who knows. It worked and within two days the self-serving bastards restored all pay and funding.
Yeah, except historically speaking one of the best ways to turn the military against you [actively, that is] is to fail to pay them.
Reid is the power elite’s messenger boy. He’s told what to do then he gives the message to obama. This sheilds obama. He opened his mouth on Syria before he got Reid’s instructions.
The AF pilots should have a “blue out”. Everyone of them call in sick.
S.1541 - A bill to appropriate such funds as may be necessary to ensure that members of the Armed Forces, including reserve components thereof, and supporting civilian and contractor personnel continue to receive pay and allowances for active service performed when a Governmentwide shutdown occurs, and for other purposes.113th Congress (2013-2014)
The following 25 Republicans stood shoulder to shoulder with Senator Harry Reid and President Obama to fund ObamaCare:
Meanwhile, the 19 heroes who stood with Senators Cruz and Lee to defund ObamaCare are:
Two Republican senators did not vote:
TH House should pass a
“Fully Fund Social Security Payments”
bill, and have the Senate reject it.
well Jimmuh Carter was a posturing self righteous axxhole but he was NOT a deranged emotionally detached unstable illiterate narcissist like Obama
and congress democrats were a whole different breed back then, now they might as well be brown shirts for the disdain and even hatred have for over half the American public
So let me get this straight.
Our men and women in uniform, who put their lives on the line day-in and day-out for this country in accordance with a Constitutionally-defined function of government, are going to go without pay.
TSA workers, however, whose job consists of violating the United State Constitution on a daily basis, are going to keep getting their checks.
Something seems hugely amiss about that to me.
It’s not just pissing off active-duty, it’s also pissing off already angered veterans and military families who see OBayMe arming Al Qaeda in Syria. I call it politicians committing treason what do you call it besides vote them all out?
Dittos for his golf caddies and the poor guy who has to hold his umbrella for him. This is not going to end well.
Treason is a good term for it.
That sux for yours and mine!! Traitorous bastards!
To their credit, both my knee-jerk Obama-worshipping Senators have D.C. office staff that is both courteous and polite. I expect no action from either of them, but a tip of the cap to those who answered the phones.
Democrats HATE THE MILITARY and always have. If it were up to them they would not have any pay.
“The Senate acts as Obamas shield”
As well as, (among other things) his shill, beard and/or pimp!
RAT and RINO B@stards!
Has this been going on since 2011 or is this time a redo of the same Rat tactics?
Efforts to Protect Military Pay Stalled
September 23, 2011 | Terry Howell
When the president considered sitting down with the four congressional leaders in the White House ahead of the deadline to avert a government shutdown, Reid privately urged Obama to call off the meeting, according to several people familiar with the situation. Reid believed that it would amount to nothing more than a photo-op that would give the false impression that a serious negotiation was occurring, even warning he wouldnt attend such a session. Obama scrapped it.
As Washington barrels forward to the first government shutdown in 17 years on Tuesday, the wily Reid has taken the lead role in pushing a hardball Democratic legislative strategy that can be summed up like this: Make the Republicans cave.
The death panels arent going to come through the front door. Theyre going to sneak up on you from behind with piano wire.
democrats in the house and senate were mostly the same as they are today, with a few more exceptions. Read “The Roosevelt Myth” and you’ll see that today is much like history repeating itself, with the house and senate mostly doing everything it could to support Roosevelt’s socialist agenda.
No military pay then no welfare pay and no congressional/executive/legislative branch pay either.
..this s*** comes right from the top..........
Campaigns to vote these slithering Elitists out in 2014 start now, ya think?
I believe that the Senate passed the bill this afternoon and sent it on to the President for signature.
Only because, politically, they HAD NO CHOICE.
