U.S. military personnel will face a disruption in pay if Congress doesnt quickly pass a budget and raise the debt ceiling, President Barack Obama warned in his weekly address Saturday.
The government will shut down. So will many services the American people will expect, Obama said, speaking of the consequences he says the country will suffer if Congress cant come to an agreement on a continuing resolution bill. Military personnel, including those deployed overseas, wont get their paychecks on time.
On Friday, the House stripped funding for the presidents landmark healthcare law from a continuing resolution bill to fund the government. If Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid reinserts the funding when the bill reaches the Senate, which he most likely will, some Republicans have threatened filibuster it.

I want to see a disruption in tee times.
So the media will pretend that a budget wasn’t sent that funded everything but ObamaCare...and that the choice to fund everything else, or withhold funding everything else, is Obama’s alone...
Welcome to Nazi Germany, folks. The media, including Fox News, is completely government-”owned.”
I want to see the power cut off at the White House promptly at midnight October 1.
Try it, Obamahole.
Dare you, you limp waisted idiot.
During the last government shut down, I seem to remember the military getting paid.
How about all the White House costs be cut October 1. Sorry no more staff, no more parties, no more travel. Just security and electricity.
Notice he says nothing about the welfare rats?
And if we don't pass another raise in the debt ceiling .. NOTHING will have changed ... right ?
How can NOT passing a new debt ceiling cause us not to pay the military ?
By now, we know what he meant when he said, “Punish your enemies.”
You’re very kind. Security AND electricity?
Ok no electricity. I woke up feeling generous today.
Here it comes....no SS checks for you!!
Ridiculous...reduce the congressional staffs...Congressmen/women dont’ need 50 slaves.
One of these days he is gonna wish he had the military on his side.
Oh wait, all the gays in the military will stand behind him. So he’s got that going for him.
Nice comment by the leader of the armed forces! Eager to throw his own people under the bus!
BTW, isn’t this how military coups get their start?
oathkeepers remember benghazi...fast and furious...IRS...wire taps...AQ/mussie bros....and on and on.
The mechanics of disbursements from the Treasury in the absence of a budget or CR are up to the Chief Executive.
Whatever happened before is irrelevant. We're not in Kansas anymore.
