    If you receive Social Security prepare to sue the Government if they refuse to pay. There is a specific tax designed to pay for this system and the Federal Government has no authority to divert funds each month from said taxes until all entitlements are paid. Obama has threatened to cut payments.

    If you are receiving Veteran payments either from the Department of Veterans Affairs or Retirement benefits and the Government does not pay you also can sue under the 14th Amendment. That Amendment makes it clear the Government may not default on payments to veterans.

    It's a scare tactic that Dem's have always done. Pretty much everybody knows it for what it really is.
    That why he only said it once and has not said it again. Nobody was fooled by it.
    Obama got egg on his face for it.

    I think the median SS check is about $1,117.

    That would buy what? About 5 hours of legal time if you hired a cheap lawyer?

    VA Paid, I suspect SS will pay as well since it is the law. Don't get SS till around middle of the month though.

    You cannot 'sue' the government, per se. Soverign Immunity was first recognized by U.S. courts in the case of The Schooner Exchange v. M'Faddon in the early 19th C.

    20 or 30 percent, lol, if and only if the lawyer wrote one and only one letter.
