    ...if funding was cut off for the entire MIC TODAY, there's still  at least 6 months of funding left in the pipeline. Also, the President has lots of latitude in shifting funds from one department to another as the needs arise and unforeseen emergencies (like Benghazi and hurricanes) occur. So there's always more than enough money at any given time for security or any other contingency. That's why they're called contingency funds. So that lack of money argument is more of a copout(political) than factual. He's the Commander-in-Chief. The military follows its orders. The buck always stops at the president's desk, regardless of party in power.

      Transferring money between departments is a major bureaucratic hassel -- and the losing department never does so willingly.  In the case of State, they have limited funding to move internally, so any funding would have to come from somewhere else.  So, it isn't nearly as simple as you propose.

        ...I haven't been at this very long, so forgive me for my lack of knowledge and experience in these matters.
