Military=job security....maybe not

U.S. troops could be required to report to work without pay if a budget clash in Congress results in a government-wide shutdown, according to draft planning guidance circulating in the Pentagon.

A shutdown could happen as early as next week, as the government is set to run out of money at midnight March 17. A bill that would keep the government operating temporarily has been prepared in the House of Representatives, but it is not clear when or if it might pass.

The government has been operating under a series of temporary appropriations, known as continuing resolutions, since Oct. 1 because of lawmakers’ inability to agree on how much money to provide federal agencies. Budget discussions have become increasingly complicated since the November general elections resulted in a divided legislature, with Republicans controlling the House and Democrats controlling the Senate.

When the government was shut down in 1995, military personnel continued to report to work and were paid, but the planning guidance sent to the services and defense agencies says a shutdown this time will be different.

“All military personnel will continue in normal duty status regardless of their affiliation with exempt or non-exempt activities,” says the draft planning guidance that was prepared for the services and defense agencies. “Military personnel will serve without pay until such time as Congress makes appropriated funds available to compensate them for this period of service.”

I blame the illegal terrorists... errr I mean "president" for our continued problems. And I blame EVERYONE who voted for him without proper knowledge. eg. the people who have never voted in their lives and then decided to vote this past election because they bought the lame political popularity of the Obama tards.

When people spend their lives NOT voting and all band together to start voting at the same time... you get horrible results and Obama and his minions knew that and used that concept against the nation. I don't believe he has ANY love for this country or any of the people in it. I also believe he is racist. And yes, a person can hate white people and it still counts as racism.

/rant.


Sorry for that, I needed to vent a little bit. Bad day and I hope I didn't offend too many people. :$
