Obama enforces illegal Furloughs at US Strategic Command

STRATCOM

On Monday, Barack Obama signed a bill that would gurantee the pay of both military personnel and civilians working for the military.  By Thursday, Obama furloughed 2,000 civilian employees at Offutt Air Force Base.  That constitutes 67% of all civilian employees. The bill had passed the House unanimously, 423-0.  The Senate passed the bill by  unanimous consent. 

On Friday, in an interview with Breitbart News, Rep. Lee Terry (R-NE), called the furloughs illegal.  The Pay Our Military Act assures that these 2,000 people will be paid no matter what, therefore the furlough amounts to a paid vacation and is in keeping with the White House program of causing as much pain as possible and blaming it on the Republicans.
