They will only not get paid if Obama opts to not pay them.
We are not borrowing 100% of our budget.
Why aren’t we reading stories about how the welfare queens might not get their EBT? Easy, because Obama wants them to feel secure that he’s got their backs.
No, we're borrowing about a thirds of it. Two thirds of the budget is non-descretionary spending and by law has to be paid. Defense is considered descretionary and will get any money that is left over. If there even is any.
We saw the chaotic results of an EBT “crisis” this past weekend in rural Lousianna. Picture that same scenario in major cities throughout the US. The urban folks have the government by the short hairs and they know it.
