He doesn't know. The military will still get paid, veterans will still get paid, social security checks will still go out. Now the public employees might be told to take unpaid leaves of absence, food stamps may get cut in half, all of those that voted for Obama because he gave things may see all of that go away. Even Congresses pay and pensions are not as safe as military, active and retired, SSI pensioners, and I believe even railway pensions. Public union pay and pensions, not protected by law!
