(CNN) - The U.S. House of Representatives has voted to fund payments of death benefits to survivors of fallen military personnel - benefits that were halted because of the partial government shutdown.
Yet another Obama admnistration tactic of abusing the American people to make them suffer. This illustrates just how low these leftist criminals will stoop to inflict injury on the most vulnerable of people, families who have just lost a loved one.
Yeah, except just yesterday a rethug was bashing the Pentagon for witholding funds, whining that the rethugs had restored funding and the Pentagon wasn't disbursing the $$$. This is just more of the rethugs abusing the American people and blaming EVERYBODY ELSE for their failures. This illustrates just how low these fascist criminals will stoop to inflict injury on the most vulnerable of people, families who have just lost a loved one.
"Some Commander-in-Chief. Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. Obama shows the world every day he simply is not up to the job."
What don't you understand about the money not being there and Obama having ZERO authority to continue these benefits unless and until Congress passes something? Congress has to authorize it or Obama can't do it, and Congress failed to do so, which is why they're trying to do so now. Your talking point is garbage, a lie and nothing more than you spouting blind hatred.
@Data-Military personnel on WIC, I don`t think so.
The operative words being you "don't think".
Tea Party logic:
we wanted government to stall to show we don't like Obama
we planned for government to stall
we told weak Repubs in office to make government stall
we encouraged government to stall
we discussed scenarios to make government stall
we cheered when it looked like government might stall
therefore it was Obama's fault that government stalled
But if you're on WIC, drop dead ... unless you're in the military, in which case you're likely on WIC. After you're dead from poor nutrition, we'll extend death benefits to your survivors.
Actually the house passed a bill to fund WIC on Oct. 4th. Harry never let it come to a vote in the Senate.
Actually, a rethug filibustered it so it never made it to a vote in the Senate.
Some Commander-in-Chief. Pathetic, absolutely pathetic. Obama shows the world every day he simply is not up to the job.
Yeah, except just yesterday California rethug congressman duncan hunter was bashing the Pentagon for witholding funds, whining that the rethugs had restored funding and the Pentagon wasn't disbursing the $$$. The rethugs show the world every day they simply are not up to doing their job.
@Rudy- Saying personnel in the military are likely to be on WIC is an insult. Class now in session.
Day 9 of government shut-down. I'm ok with congress going on strike....if they don't like it...they should have the right to protest it. But these jerks go on strike and put up someone else's jobs. Put up your own job....COWARDS!!!!
The Teatard's unnecessary recklessness and muscle flexing is screwing a lot of people, including the very people they claim to honor and support.
Y'all keep voting these unpatriotic , selfish, greedy mental midgets in so that they can keep screwing everybody including our men and women in uniform.
Wave that flag Teatards.
This illustrates, perfectly why the government shutdown is an idiotic folly from the Republicans.
Look, the governmental budget is far too complex for these fact challenged intellectual lightweight legislators to understand. There are scores of nuances that they don't understand and probably lack the mental horsepower to follow. The can not, nor did not fully study or comprehend the implications of their shutdown over Obamacare. There will continue to be a rash of consequences for ordinary Americans that these morons didn't contemplate.
If there was any doubt that these GOP'ers are not up to the cerebral task of THINKING, just look at their strategy . . . shutdown the government to end a program [Obamacare] that IS NOT funded by way of the discretionary budget. They are geniuses . . . NOT
Did the teabafoon Cruz ever serve in the army , navey Air Force ,marines, oh ya, he's CANADIAN!!!!!!!!
