I found this Bill/ Resolution and I read it and it made me laugh some, Bear with me on this. I pulled a small part of this Res so you can read it.
H. R. 55
To prioritize the payment of pay and allowances to members of the Armed Forces and Federal law enforcement officers in the event the debt ceiling is
reached or there is a funding gap.
They have no equal in the private sector, and perform a role that is both unique and vital to the continuing operation of the Federal Government
and commerce during times of crisis.
Each and every day, Federal law enforcement officers are engaged around the clock in activities that include, but are not limited to, dignitary
protection, criminal investigation, homeland security, border security, intelligence gathering, and fighting waste, fraud and abuse.
These critical Government functions cannot be interrupted due to an absence of Congressional appropriations or during periods of a Government shutdown
Here we have HR55 stateing we need to continue paying those that protect us, dont have a problem with that but the problem I have and I underline it
is this "Fight waste, Fraud and Abuse"
The statement saying they have no equal in the private sector really blows my mind away think they are so Arrogant that none of us could do there
I think its time they need to look in the mirror and police themselfs and maybe we would not need a Resolution like this ever again.
