Was funding military pay an act of respect for active duty members or an act of self preservation?


Senator Mike Allen from Utah claims the bill to passed to protect active duty military pay was done out of respect for the soldiers serving this country. It appears that this bill was passed to avoid outrage from the American people rather than protecting the financial well bring of our soldiers.

    That was just a totally weird provision. Congressional staff got paid but not military. Glad they straightened out regardless --- but it was done so efficiently it must have been for votes.
