All that is required for the military to get paid, for the government to reopen for 1-3 days, and for CHIP to be approved is for the Majority Leader to not block our unanimous consent requests on these issues.

Pence’s words are disingenuous in the extreme, and the fact that he is making a speech TO mil pers in which he denounces a political party for “playing politics” with their needs is a dangerous corruption of the relationship b/t the political leadership and the armed forces.

Same. Was on a embed training team and we wondered if we had to be nice to our partner forces if we weren't being paid... also many plans to do nothing but eat and go to the gym.

Dear Dems and Repubs, Quit using “paying soldiers” as an excuse for funding or not funding the government. You all know what really happens, and that there’s much more to this. So please don’t use those in uniform as an excuse, on either side.
