Suddenly Dick Durbin is concerned for our Military
As is well known to all, Dick Durbin has spoken unfavorably of the military on many occasions and has compared the military’s treatment of prisoners in Iraq and Afghanistan to the Nazis and Soviets and the inhumane torture they’ve carried out against their captives.
Even though Obama’s and the Democrats’ bluff has been blown by many including mainstream Republicans such as Charles Krauthammer, Dick and the rest of the Democrats continue to bluff and attack the Republicans with a straight face as though their cover had not yet been pulled.
On CBS’s Face the Nation this morning with Bob Schieffer Dick Durbin proclaimed that if the Republicans don’t compromise and give in to the Democrats plan to raise the debt ceiling then the government will default and will therefore lead to;
” …THAT PEOPLE WILL NOT BE RECEIVING THEIR SOCIAL SECURITY CHECKS, AT LEAST ON TIME. THAT WE’LL HAVE TO MAKE A DECISION ABOUT WHETHER OR NOT WE’RE GOING TO PAY THOSE WHO WORK IN THE MLITARY. THESE ARE CRITICAL DECISIONS THAT’LL HAVE TO BE MADE IF WE FAIL TO EXTEND THE DEBT CEILING.”
Dick is suddenly pretending to be full of love and care for the military and their families. Yes, pretending, because his statement is a massive tremendous humongous lie intended to both scare those depending on the checks and sway the general people into believing that the Democrats are those who love and care for all while the big bad Republicans don’t give a hoot about the seniors or men and women in the military.
The truth of course, is that the social security checks ARE NOT IN DANGER OF BEING HELD BACK no matter how many times Obama and all the Democrats will repeat their fear mongering lies! The Treasury has announced an expected income of 172 billion dollars for the month of August. Hence, if the debt ceiling is not raised there will be plenty of revenue to cover all the checks mentioned above plus additional expenses without any difficult decisions involved.
Dick Durbin who opposed and still opposes the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, who never conceded that the surge worked, and who lashes out against those risking their lives to fight evil is concerned not for those in the military he’s constantly criticizing but for the reelection of Obama his fellow Democrats.
