it seems that all this government shutdown propaganda is a bunch of crap put out there to scare the hell out of the American people. everyone that gets a paycheck still has taxes taken out, social security, and other taxes that are paid in to the government. everyone still pays taxes in to the government so what does it really mean? its means that the government cannot spend any extra money that it does not take in and must live within its means. it can still pay the interest on the debt, it can still pay social security payments, it can pay the military, it can still pay 80% of all federal workers, because the federal government still takes in over 2 and 1/2 trillion tax dollars every year. the shutdown really means that government can't over spend so maybe the shutdown is a good way to balance the budget. what do you think?
