Shutdown: Pence provides valuable leadership

Since Barack Obama shut down the federal government over his refusal to negotiate even over the implementation of ObamaCare, a number of people have been hurt or inconvenienced by this shutdown.

That is not the case in the state of Indiana, because of the prudent leadership of Governor Mike Pence, the Republican legislature and the previous governor, Mitch Daniels.

Governor Pence wrote an editorial on the steps the Hoosier state is taking to minimize the problems created by the federal government shutdown:

On that first day of the federal shutdown, I ordered the Indiana National Guard to continue paying the 244 federally-reimbursed employees who provide support to the Guard. I consider the cost of approximately $33,000 a day a small price to pay for ensuring Indiana is prepared to handle any emergency.

And more:

Since Indiana has administered those programs in a responsible manner, we have funds available to continue both SNAP and WIC through October and TANF through November, if need be. We will assess our resources and look at options for providing those services to Hoosiers should the shutdown go on longer.

The difference in leadership between Pence and Obama is striking. While Obama petulantly orders barricades placed around the World War II memorial, Pence is using state funds to continue programs for Hoosiers most in need of assistance until federal funds are again available to fund these programs. This way, while the parties battle it out in Washington, Indiana is minimizing the damage.

At a time when our federal government is more dysfunctional than ever, we should all be thankful to have such prudent leadership in the state of Indiana.
