So Republicans and some Democrats in the House vote to pay military which should include payment of death benefits. The Pentagon(translate: Chuck Hagel) said it shouldn’t be paid. Obama administration knew of this problem for some days before it broke, yet did nothing. Republicans immediately passed another bill to try to solve the problem created by the Obama administration. Yet, somehow, it is the Republicans’ fault? Only in the twisted benighted mind of John McCain.
On Friday, Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) blamed conservatives like Sen. Ted Cruz (R-TX) for the Obama administration’s initial failure to pay death benefits to the families of fallen American soldiers during the government shutdown.
