Tea Party Caucus to Push Full Faith and Credit Act Bill That Would Force Obama to Pay Creditors, Social Security Recipients & Military in Case of Default
Enter the real adults …
Remember when President Barack Obama told CBS that he could not guarantee that Social Security checks would go out if the budget went into default? It appears that there is a real adult in the room as the Tea Party Caucus is looking to push a Full Faith and Credit Act bill that would force Obama to do the responsible thing and pay creditors, social security recipients and those in the military in case their is a debt limit default.
Tea Party conservatives hope to make a push on the House floor to force President Obama to avoid a national default if Congress fails to raise the debt limit.
Members of the Senate Tea Party Caucus have met with House freshmen to discuss a plan to pressure House Speaker John Boehner (R-Ohio) to bring the Full Faith and Credit Act to the floor.
The legislation would direct Obama to prioritize federal payments to the nation’s creditors, Social Security recipients and soldiers serving in Afghanistan and Iraq.
How common sense is this bill that would make the President and Democrats responsible to prioritize their debt as opposed to using scare tactics and lie to the American people that checks will not go out . Normally it would be a president that would provide such leadership to show that the US would be responsible in prioritizing debt payment. Not in this case.
“We have a bill that directs by law the president to pay the interest on the debt, pay social security checks and pay soldiers’ salaries. We’ve been talking with the House freshmen to see if they will force a vote on that next week,” said Sen. Rand Paul (R-Ky.), a member of the Senate Tea Party Caucus.
How shameful that Barack Obama would make such a comment that social security and disability checks would not go out when he knows there is the money to may them. Actually, it is beyond shameful and playing partisan scare politics at its worse.
However, as bad as Obama has been with such terrible scared tactics … as stated at Red State, its time for the Conservative GOP to draw a line in the sand and stand up for the principles as to why they were voted into office in 2010.

CALL HIS BLUFF!
I don’t recall hearing any Tea Party candidate for House or Senate tell his constituents that he would let America default on her debts, throwing the world into economic decline rather than raise the debt ceiling.
Hey guys, it isn’t the libs who are making such threats. it’s us. I may have to switch to coffee. Please pass the cream.
Good for the TEA party caucus. They also need to put a bill on the house floor for impeachment if Barry refuses to prioritize payments. Force him to do his job under threat to remove him.
Lets see how long before “O”, friends and family take a big tax payer vacation to some far, far away place and say how good a leader he was to get the debt increased so he can spend spend spend and us pay for it.
“When will this end? ugh.”
call the bluff, obama isn’t real,he’s weak.
The Voice of some semblance of sanity is finally heard? Can they push this through?
GO FOR IT, call his bluff is right!
Scaring elderly people living on social security and afraid it will be taken away. Their very worried and upset as to how they will survive. Obama could be causing many heart attacks if not worse. He is truly slim.
