During the 1995 shutdown, the Clinton Administration followed the OMB guidance issued during the Reagan Administration that ensured the military was paid during a government shutdown. The Obama Administration, it seems, is taking a different direction. Why?

Janet, Obama has definitely decided to hang our soldiers out to dry. Read this ~ and if you bounce back to the home page there are several other articles detailing exactly what military members/families can expect this time around.
There is one chance ~ if Obama doesn't veto HR 1297 ~ which he has stated he will. Bad Obama. Bad CinC.

I feel that he thinks of military as a pawn to get what he wants.
adnilm, if you feel that is a better question then what is stopping you from posting it as it's own instead of attempting to hijack someone else's question?
