    Well it looks like Hubby will be home for awhile, he works for Dept of Interior. If I hear one more person say Shut it down I'm going to scream! Easy to say when your paycheck keeps going in the bank. If the Pres and Congress were affected by this we would already have a budget why do we, the American people get punished while they the ones who put us in this mess keep getting paid?

    Has the President left for his weekend vacation yet? Really not much going on except that all the soldiers and Marines under his command are going to stop receiving paychecks tomorrow. Why not go on vacation. Military paychecks are just a distraction according the War President.

    We live in Cuba now.

    Well, since he doesn't give a rip if the military gets paid... maybe he should fly Marine One over to VA himself. Pretty sure he couldn't figure out how to start the engine...

    Does anyone know if we will still recieve a military disability check? I stood in line at our commisary watching a young marine wife paying with food stamps wonder what she will do now trying to feed her family while her husband is overseas fighting, putting his life on the line everyday, This really stinks. If you stop paying the Pres and Congress this budget issue will be solved in 10 minutes they dont care about us they still recieve their checks. Heck they should be able to get some good deals while half of America has no money maybe the stores will have some good deals for the rest.

    We're in the same boat with hubby working @ DHS Waiting to hear how a shutdown will affect his office.

    It will be interesting to see if ANY of the politicians will forego their paycheck while our Military and other Federally funded jobs/programs do without.

    Actually, the Federal workers will be eligible for unemployment in the states where they live. Depending on their state they might have to wait a week before being eligible. I sure hope that they won't collect unemployment AND ALSO be able to get back pay. (Just talking civilian workers here.) Certainly would make the unemployment figures look pretty ugly for April if about 300,000 workers are added.Another reason the Dems might not like the idea of cutting Fed worker jobs in the new budget ... that wouldl end up adding to the unemployment figures. That might make it appear that the economy were not truly recovering.
