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.
