Obama Releases Post-Shutdown Message for Troops, Civilian Defense Employees

Obama Releases Post-Shutdown Message for Troops, Civilian Defense Employees | Current events | Scoop.it
Immediately following the government officially reaching shutdown mode, President Obama put out a video to the military explaining what the shutdown means for them.

Via littlebytesnews
Carly Koch's insight:

The military received information about what will happen to them during the government shutdown. Obama stated that until Congress funds the budget. Troops are to remain on duty. Congress passed a bill stating that there would be "military pay exemption". 

 

I think that the government should work together and stop the arguing. Even though  military isn't affected as much as others, there are people who won't have jobs until the shutdown is over. As said in the article, families are suffering furloughs.

Such an idiot...only the non-essential employees will be furloughed, if he'd stop spending so much and pay off the debt we might not be at this point anyway....but it's the DEM controlled Senate and him who haven't passed a budget in over four years!

 

Reid is the obstructionist and worst leader in history...he couldn't even get his own party to pass a budget!! That is why we are at this point of passing Continuing Resolutions....and because he and Obama won't negotiate with the House we had to shut it down. They shut it down, they control the Senate and the WH!! They could have agreed to fund everything but Obamacare, at least a year, but NO they wouldn't do it!!

 

What an idiot!

 

 Some people believe that the GOP refuses to compromise and wants a government shutdown. 

Here are the facts:

Where We're At:
Friday, 9/20/13 - The House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution that would fully fund the government (including things that Republicans don't like) while at the same time defunding Obamacare.
Result: House Republicans compromised on spending that we'd like to see cut in exchange for defunding Obamacare.

Friday, 9/27/13 - The Senate stripped the defunding language out of the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refused to compromise.

Saturday, 9/28/13 - The House of Representatives added two amendments to the Senate revised Continuing Resolution to delay Obamacare for one year (far from what we were originally willing to agree to) and repeal the medical device tax.
Result: House Republicans compromised away from defunding to delaying Obamacare for one year.

Monday, 9/30/13 - The Senate stripped the two amendments from the House passed Continuing Resolution and sent it back to the House.
Result: Harry Reid and Senate Democrats refuse to compromise one inch on Obamacare.

via +John Gagne  Leslie P originally shared to The Conservative Union (►Health Care): House GOP: Here's a CR that funds everything for a year, except Obamacare

Senate Dems: No.

House GOP: Here's a CR that funds everything, but postpones the Obamacare individual mandate for a year (so that people are treated equally with corporations), and repeals the tax on Medical Devices (which you have already said you want repealed).

Senate Dems: No.

House GOP: Here's a CR that funds everything, but postpones the Obamacare individual mandate for a year (so that people are treated equally with corporations), and forces the Congress and their staffers to be treated the same as the little people.

Senate Dems: No.

House GOP: Here's a CR that funds everything for a WEEK so we don't have to shut the government down while we meet to negotiate this out.

Senate Dems: No.

House GOP: Can we have a meeting to talk about this?

Senate Dems: No.
Obama: No.

House GOP: .....

Media: GOP INTRANSIGENCE SHUTS DOWN GOVERNMENT

Really? LBN:Obamacare will do nothing to make healthcare affordable...it is raising the cost of insurance premiums, especially for the young and increasing the cost of medical devices, medicines and other areas will be taxed higher ...also see:

Finally,premiums are not going down. They have increased by an average of $3,000 per family since Obamacare passed. And, according to the Society of Actuaries report they will continue to rise. You can not mandate that 65 'preventative care tests' and 10 'essential health benefits' be added to a policy and expect costs to go down. Learn more....http://ht.ly/pmk4Y
