Obama is lying about lacking funds to honor commitments made to our Armed Forces. When seven Marines died in a training accident, Harry Reid instantly politicized it and insinuated they wouldn’t have died if Republicans hadn’t cut money for training!
Is there really a shortage of money? Saying it costs too much to keep it open, Obama closed our White House to kids at spring break but keeps it open for his rich $500,000 contributors. Who owns the White House?
Look at the gifts he is giving to countries controlled by Militant Muslims!! Obama has gifted F-16’s, tanks and billions to Muslim Brotherhood’s Morsi, more millions to King Abdullah, millions to the Palestinians, but claims he has no money for our military.
Look at the millions Obama wastes on Secret Service agents, flights, super luxury hotel stays and even food tasters!! Check the past 3 months. Obama’s kids and friends are vacationing in the Bahamas’ super luxury Atlantis resort, escorted by secret service agents and flown down on Air Force planes. Obama and family spent $8 million to vacation in Hawaii. Michelle, kids and friends spent at least a million for a ski trip to a luxury resort in Aspen while Obama spent millions flying to Florida to play golf with Tiger Woods (and arrange “terms” with Keystone pipeline officials.) Biden spent over a Million dollars for one single night in Paris. Obama took 600 people and two airplanes to Israel. Obama needed an escort of 40+ Secret Service Agents in 20 cars for a half a mile ride to dinner with Republican Senators. The Lobster salad served by the White House was good enough for Republican Congressmen to eat. But Obama, our King, did not eat because his “food taster” was not there!!
Why does Obama need 40 secret service agents? And how about that “taster”? We would need at least 3 “tasters” working night and day every single day to taste Obama’s food. How much do they cost?
Obama has spent millions buying billions of bullets for his TSA but claims he can’t afford ammo for the military, so they cannot train. Military equipment is not being maintained or replaced. Average age of our tanker aircraft is 47 years and for strategic bombers is 34 years. Our aircraft carriers are docked claiming “we can’t afford” regular maintenance.
But Obama has deployed Special Operations Forces in at least 75 countries. Obama is meddling in volatile countries without explaining why. Look at the results: Iraq destabilized by Al Qaeda; Taliban returning to Afghanistan; Iran with nuclear bombs; Egypt controlled by the Muslim Brotherhood; Libya, Niger, Mali all being taken over by Al Qaeda. He delayed involvement in Syria until Al Qaeda militants got into position. Now, he’ll send in our Armed Forces with the same mission they had in Libya: Give up their lives and provide cover while Obama arms Al Qaeda terrorists to take over Syria too.
Our soldiers give up their regular jobs and earn far less, just to serve our country. Now, Obama has ordered soldiers to pay 30% more for their health care while he has reduced coverage. Obama has also cut $86 million from the Student Financial Assistance Office which gives only $4,500 per applicant; increased fees for direct loans; cut grants to Universities offering military scholarships; and reduced training at its Non-Commissioned Officer Academy and Squadron Officer School.
The ultimate ignominy is Obama’s order to cut the scholarships for children of soldiers who gave up their lives in Iraq and Afghanistan. Obama cut their $6,000 tuition assistance by 37.8% or $2,133.81. $6.8 Trillion of government spending to play with, but Obama can’t afford a measly $2,133.81 to honor commitments made to children of dead veterans! One less trip on Air Force 1 to play golf, a few less secret service agents, would make up that money.
I realize Obama wants to pretend there is no money, and hurt Americans as much as possible, to make political points against Republicans. But somebody explain to me, why does Obama need to cheat the children of dead heroes?
