House Votes 425-0 To Restore Death Benefits For Fallen Soldiers…

Barry vowed earlier today to veto any piecemeal bills such as this, whether or not he would risk the wrath of the entire country by vetoing this bill remains to be seen.
Via The Hill:

    The House voted unanimously on Wednesday to restore the financial payments the Department of Defense makes to the families of fallen U.S. soldiers.

    Members easily passed the bill after the Pentagon said it can no longer make the payments because of the government shutdown. The Honoring the Families of Fallen Soldiers Act, H.J.Res. 91, was approved in a 425-0 vote.

    The bipartisan bill was quickly developed and rushed to the floor this week after the Pentagon said it could no longer make “death gratuity” payments to families after October 1 because of the government shutdown.

    That announcement prompted immediate anger from members of both parties, although the parties split on the cause of the problem.

    The House vote came on the same day that the Obama administration said it would try to fix the problem administratively. White House Spokesman Jay Carney said Obama was “very disturbed” that payments have been halted, and said a fix should be in place by today.

    It’s unclear whether that will be enough to stop the Senate from voting on the bill, given the anger on both sides in the last few days.

The Dems in the House want to be reelected, no matter how deep their hatred for the military runs.

Harry will probably ignore this 'piecemeal' legislation.

I would caution Mr. Reed about doing that but personally hope he does!

What makes you think Democrats hate the military? Just because they don't all support the US spending more on military than most of the rest of the world combined doesn't mean they hate the military. It doesn't mean they don't support the troops or understand the importance of having a functioning military.

You are correct...having spent almost all of my life connected to the military I can attest that there are Dems serving in the military.

The answer, grasshopper lies in historical records.   The voting records and policies of past Democrat Presidents and Congresses.

I didn't say that ALL Democrats hate the military.

But in the current crop of radical, near-Communist pols, and with the fact that decent Dems have been driven out of the party by the hard-core leftists in control, the people in power in your party are extremely hateful to the military.

The average, everyday Dem is a different story.

They've just been lied to, and are apparently not bright enough to pick up on that fact, and leave their radicalized party.

Perhaps you should get into your own head, and figure out how you can support a party that has no respect for what you did for your country.

I just want to put it out there that I opted out of voting for Obama not once, but twice.  :laugh: Not all liberals support or associate themselves with the Democrats.

Do you watch The Daily Show?

I'm asking because it seems, you were just 'not into voting'.  in 08 and 12.

A person that thinks that much of their vote when one of the candidates is promising to "fundamentally transform the United States of America"?

Let me ask a question, please.  Do YOU like what's going on around you? 

Thus the original question....if you're too 'busy' to vote but take the time to come here for your 'kicks'....where do YOU get your news?

You sure aren't a FOXNEWS viewer....except to check out the women, maybe.   :laugh:

True! It's the 98% of liberals who do that give the other 2% a bad name!

I love the Daily Show and Colbert Report, but the majority of my news comes from online sources. It is my personal opinion that neither side is better than the other now that money has seeped into and corrupted politics. I would be in support of a strong and open minded third party candidate, but none of them get the support or recognition that they should.

Is this thread about the House voting 425-0 to restore death benefits or about you discussing another poster's viewing habits? If the latter, shouldn't you take it private thus allowing others to discuss the relevant topic without your digressions?

....just asking.   :shrug:

(I'm surprised you don't LOVE Obama, because he adores people who don't give a rip about the country).

I think the guys you should really be worried about are glad that all of your attention and hostility is focused on Obama and the Democrats. The reverse is true for the left wing.

You don't know much about conservatives, do you?

And you clearly have shut your eyes to the obeisance of the left wing to Obama, and their abject lying hatred toward conservatives.
