Billions for Unions – Not a Penny for the Troops


 10 1106Share126

The Pentagon has announced that paychecks for the military will not be cut during a government shutdown. 

The military is actively engaged in three wars, the last of which Obama started himself. It is beyond belief that Obama now plans not to pay the military during a government shutdown especially while troops are active in the field. 

Is this the true Obama agenda? Is this the Democrat agenda? Billions for union pensions but not a penny for the troops? Courting demoralization and defeat in the field? 

Yes, we get it that after government resumes, the pay will be made whole. But much of the military has young families that live from paycheck to paycheck. And even without that factor, stopping pay is a breach of the implicit contract between our troops and the American public. 

Thanks for coming. Please leave a comment. Your opinion is as valuable as mine or anyone’s. Let’s create an active dialog. Let’s stand up for what we want, what we think and believe America should be like. Fight for your rights – and I don’t mean take to the street with guns. Do your fighting with the pen and conversation – friendly persuasion. Remember, we’re Americans living in the greatest nation on earth. Act like it. Don White
