Obama's priorities in spending couldn't be more crystal clear. They are so clear he's bankrupting the nation. Suddenly when he can't borrow more money he doesn't have the money to pay KIA families to come to the funerals, but he has the money to buy beach bums in La Jolla lobster. This is what happens when people become reliant upon Government. What would happen if Obama tried to really use this shutdown to stop feeding all the millions of welfare obots out there. What's going to happen if he shuts off their Obama phones. He's already trying to take our guns. What's going to happen when that EBT card gets rejected. What if Obama turned off the welfare benefits just like he's turned off the benefits for these military families.
You're saying it yourself and even making my case for me. Those "poor people" can't survive without Government. Without "altruistic" Obama providing for them. Obama only wants to control your HC and create the largest database in human history because he cares about you right?
Look at how he uses it as political theatre. He causes the pain and then uses people the MSM to run the sob narrative to try and scare everyone that only the government can make things right. People are waking up to this Alinsky spectacle however which is why Obama is going down in the polls. Both parties are because they have become corrupt and controlled by big banks and corporations. You're telling me if you were President of the United States (The Commander in Chief) you'd let these benefits not be paid to these military families? Are you kidding me right now? Clearly Obama has failed in his role as Commander in Chief here and Hagel has failed miserably as well. Hagel is Obama's pick. Obama is responsible. I don't know what your morality is, but a President can easily sign an executive order to fund this. He'd be performing his role as Commander in Chief. You're confusing Obama's role as Commander in Chief with Obama's fantasy prog/obot narrative that Obama is everyone's Daddy.
