Legislation Launched to Bypass Obama, Have Governors Deploy National Guard / Gov. Perry to Send 1,000Submitted by goldenequity on Mon, 07/21/2014 - 13:00
Perry Said to Be Sending 1,000 Guard Troops to Border
But... CURRENT law says TEXAS will have to pay for the deployment.
If the President orders National Guard deployed.. the Fed pays;
If a Governor orders National Guard deployment.. the State pays.
Which now brings us to a bill being introduced by Con. Steve King (Iowa)which has already garnered 2 dozen co-sponsers.
The question is: Will Harry Reid once again block and bury another one before it ever reaches the floor? (yawn... probably)
cheers to all (who NEVER give up!!!)
