Among the most frequently asked questions regarding a potential federal government shutdown are:
Will Grandma still receive her Social Security check?
Will the military and law enforcement still function as usual?
Will Dear Leader's six-figure salary be impacted in the slightest?
The answers are yes, yes, and "Chillax, America."
Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) also scolded Boxer at the time for presenting an amendment that he said was unconstitutional.Strange how the same kooky left-wing windbag who didn't give a rip about the Constitution while Obamacare was being shoved down our throats is suddenly anal retentive about touching Obama's salary.
Leahy pointed out that the Constitution explicitly states that the president’s salary “shall neither be increased nor diminished during the period for which he shall have been elected.”
“The Constitution specifically prohibits that,” Leahy told Boxer.
