President signs legislation ensuring military pay

Posted: Updated:

WASHINGTON (AP) - President Obama signs legislation ensuring military will get paid during any government shutdown.

 Earlier today, Senate Democrats voted to kill the latest GOP offering from the House that would keep the government operating past midnight but would delay implementation of the Affordable Health Care Act for year. There are signs some Republican unity is fraying. Speaking at the White House, President Barack Obama charged that some in the GOP want a ransom in exchange for doing their job.
