    The Obama administration is using the military as the whipping post with an exceptional different meter to extract budget money he hasn't actually gotten in 5 years due to his negligence.

    However, the Republican House members haven't done a good job in their actions for 2 years. The military have long term contracts and commitments to the President and Country that cannot be waived or let them free of their commitment. It is said that military operational requirements are sacrificed to allow Russian or other nations the ability to attack or take advantage of our known weaknesses. We had a nuclear unit in North Dakota not be able to fulfill their commitment with nuclear missiles. That isn't necessarily just from sequester but that process is long term since the President announced that process over a year ago.

    Military men and women and their civilian counterparts depend on their salaries to keep us safe and free. A lot of the bases are in locations that aren't beneficial for this type of monetary cut back. The President believes these dedicated military servants can bend and take the whipping. They have been in Iraq and Afghanistan repeatedly for all of us.
