Korean War Veteran Devid Kern blasted President Obama for threatening to take away checks from veterans and seniors.
Leaders of veterans groups met with administration officials Tuesday to discuss what is at stake if Congress cannot come to a consensus.
President Obama has said that if a default occurs, the administration will be forced to prioritize who gets paid.
That means those receiving veterans benefits, social security, unemployment insurance, tuition grants, food stamps, and child care subsidies may be forced to compete for coverage.
“If that happens, and we default, we would not have enough money to pay all of our bills –bills that include monthly Social Security checks, veterans’ benefits, and the government contracts we’ve signed with thousands of businesses,” said the President.
Each day without a deal, veterans at the Raleigh County Commission on Aging worry whether their check will come in the mail next month.
“The fact that the President comes out and threatens to take away our social security checks and not pay the veterans is despicable,” said David Hern, a veteran fought in Korea.
Hern believes veterans who have seen the country through its darkest days will be left behind.
“The power will be shut off. A lot of them won’t be able to make their payments on their homes, their cars. Their credit will be destroyed because it will take months to get back on track. It will be a disaster,” said Hern.
