Obama scares troops over being paid

As if our soldiers in harms way need UNNECESSARY distractions:
Barack Obama had Joint Chiefs of Staff Chairman Adm. Mike Mullen fly to Afghanistan this weekend to tell the troops serving there that their families may not get paid if a debt agreement is not reached. Admiral Mullen was meeting with US troops serving in southern Afghanistan.

Shameful. I was in the Marine Corps and I served my country in Iraq. I saw my friends pay the ultimate sacrifice, giving their lives in defense of freedom. How dare they even consider this course of action. When your in combat the one thing you should be focusing on is the enemy, not whether your family is going to recieve the money you have earned at the risk of losing your life.

Salary of the US President $400,000

Salary of retired US Presidents $180,000

Salary of House/Senate $174,0​00

Salary of Speaker of the House $223,500

Salary of Majority/Minority Leaders $193,400

Average Salary of Soldier DEPLOYED IN IRAQ $38,000

I think we found where the cuts should be made.

It's very sad, that President Obama would try to play head games and uses as pawns our men and women in harms way.

Obama can't get any lower than this

I agree. You can't get any lower when you're playing with the minds of America's best and their families.
