Just the latest disgrace brought on our country by the Obama administration. Playing games with death benefits due to the families of our fallen soldiers. All to simply make the government shutdown as painful as possible. What a dark day it is to have a Commander In Chief who does not even begin to comprehend what honor is - Obama has lowered the dignity of the office he holds and has zero concern for those who serve our country. Political games with the families of dead soldiers - what a curse our nation brought on itself electing this insult to our country as its president. Obama does everything in his power to damage our nation. The single worst catastrophe in our nation's history is its current president. A pure politician who understands nothing beyond his own petty politics.
