Government Shutdown???

Didn't know where to put this, so I thought this was a good place. Any other government employees on here? Well I am, and I'm scared shitless that I won't get my next paycheck. If the government shuts down then I stop getting paid, but still have to show up for work. All leave is cancelled and everybody has to work. Something about national security or some crap like that. If they depend on us so much, then why take our pay away. My heart goes out to the soldiers fighting a war for the people that don't wanna pay them.

I wouldn't get too down about it. I'm sure they will magically come to an agreement at the last minute tomorrow. They're just in a pissing contest right now. Look for instance at the bush tax extensions. Everyone thought it would expire, but they came to an agreement right before the deadline. I hope for your sake that I'm right about this one. Good luck…

Active duty will be the last (except for congress) to go without pay. I hate it for all the govt workers that will go without pay, but I have to say "Shut this biotch down!" A budget should have been passed a long time ago, but the f-in Dems put it off, and now they have the audasity to blame the GOP. The nerve.

According to kaysian theory were supposed to be increasing are deficit to help stimulate the economy. As said before their just doing this to play hard ball and it most likely won’t happen and if it did I’ve only heard of contracted government workers not getting paid at this point but I’m also a little worried because they want to take away all of the pell grant money which is far more likely to happen. Dont worry we will both get are money!

I'll be coming to you for a loan when it shuts down.

even if they do shut it down congress will still get paid as they are the ones who determine if they are paid or not.

Congress and pres. Should be the first ones to lose pay. They are the cause of the problems. What happened to four years and your out. These life long *** hats are screwing us over. I don't care what side they are on, they are not on our side.

Well, they pulled it off. NO shutdown. Sometimes I think they pull this stuff to make it look like they're doing something…

If it shuts down, it won't be for long and those that work without pay temporarily will get their backpay. That's why people should save their money instead of piss it away...you never know when you may need it for emergencies.

Either you make alot of money and you're single with no kids, or you're not as hardcore a wheeler as some of us.

Or maybe some people are good money managers and know their priorities...I know I have trouble with it (a lot) but hope to be in a better spot by the end of the year.

I have kids, don't make a lot of money, and am into this but I have my priorities together. Maybe those that are "hardcore" as some say just don't have their priorities together and would rather have no money and lots of toys. I would rather have both.

Senate term is 6 and can be re-elected, President can be re-elected after 4, but can only serve 2 terms, unless they step in as acting due to death or impeachment. Then they can run for 2 terms if elected. The people are the ones electing those in political offices so it can't be all the Congress and President's fault.

No, it's all us real American's who refuse to pummel the democrats into the ground. Time these rats are removed from office permanently. They're all traitors!
