Fox News personality Judge Jeanine Pirro delivered a knock-out punch to both President Obama and Congress for poorly handling the denial of death benefits for military families.
“Throw them all out!” Pirro said during her show on Saturday. “Like all of you, I’m fed up!”
Pirro said Congress passed the Pay Our Military Act on Sept. 30, hours before the shutdown, but the Pentagon gave specific instructions not to make death payments.
“This didn’t fall through the cracks,” she said. “They actually looked at it and said, ‘No money for you or your kid.’”
Pirro continued blasting both parties over the debt-ceiling fight, saying no one should receive a pension if the debt limit is higher when they leave Congress than before they took office. She also said all pay and perks – special barber, gym, gourmet cafeteria, laundry, drivers, etc. – should be withheld until the issue is worked out.
“Roll up your sleeves, get your hands dirty, put aside your disgusting egos, go to work and figure this one out!” she said.
“I talk about justice all the time. But if ever there were an injustice, this is it.”
