With government shutdown looming, military families worry about paychecks

The headline:  Military families worry about looming shutdown

The link:  http://news.yahoo.com/s/ap/20110407/ap_on_re_us/us_spending_showdown_military

The summary:  If the government does indeed shut down at the end of day Friday, military enlistees will find themselves without a paycheck.

The reaction:  Amid all the discussion and argument over who is right and who is wrong in this whole budget squabble, I truly can’t believe they’re going to allow this to happen.  The families of our military overseas go through enough already with having to be without a husband/wife/father/mother for months at a time wondering if they’re OK on a daily basis.  Now, they’re going to stop paying them because they can’t come to a budget agreement?

Absolutely unacceptable!
