Breakfast Scramble: Coward in Chief

DavidL's Breakfast Scramble
Obama to screw the troops, by a simple stroke of the pen, President Barack Obama could assure that our soldiers get paid, even if the government would shut down.  That is Obama could, but he won’t from Jeff Poor, Daily Caller [1]:

With a government shutdown looming, one major concern has been whether armed service personnel will be paid.

There is legislation pending to make sure those serving in the military don’t fall through the cracks, but according to conservative radio show host Mark Levin, such legislation isn’t necessary. The president could ensure soldiers get their checks using his executive power — it’s been done in the past — but President Barack Obama won’t do it, Levin said on his Thursday program.

Hat tip video:  Daily Caller.

In the normal course of events, in case of a government shot-down,  federal employees are either deemed essential or non-essential.   Those deemed essential are expected to show up for work and will eventually get paid   Those deemed non-essential,  get put on unpaid furlough    Well that is for Obama’s civilians.

For or uniformed service personnel, Dim Won expects our soldiers to continue to do their duty, while not getting paid.    Any job actions would be breach of soldier’s oath and a violation of federal law.   Obama wants soldiers to work without pay and threatens to send them to the brig if they done.

Lucy Slaughter goes off her rocker, from Dan Joesph:

(CNSNews.com [2]) – Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.) said today that the new Republicans elected to the House of Representatives last November came to Congress “to kill women.” She also likened Republican efforts to prohibit federal funding of abortion except in cases of rape, incest or where the life of the mother is endangered to actions taken by Nazis.

Geeze Lucy em are congresschicks, Congresscritter Louise Slaughter seems blind as well as old, from Patricia Murphy, Puffington Post [3]:

More than 80 new Republican lawmakers are heading to Washington as a result of last Tuesday’s “shellacking” of the Democrats in the midterm elections.

[…]

Beyond their broad range of careers, the new group will also be the most diverse GOP class in House history, with five new Latino members, two African-Americans and nine women adding to the ranks of the current Republican House.
