Well I thought it might be hilarious to see how ABC told the story and it was. Thanks for the laugh.

So according to ABC and associates, the US treasury loses tax dollars from the government employee who gets paid by the public sectors tax dollar. LMAO !!!

You do realize it the private sector who pay these outrageous salaries, pensions and union dues don't you ? You must come from the school of thinking that the food stamp program is a stimulus.

Looks to me we are saving 300 MILLION a day !

The only portion of this hack job that is disturbing is that public workers make on avg. over 100K ! That's not including pensions. WOW.

Figures don't lie but liars figure.

gty federal shutdown ll 131001 16x9 608 Shutdown Could Cost $300 Million a Day
(Frederic J. Brown/AFP/Getty Images)
WASHINGTON — The government shutdown comes with a hefty price tag —$300 million per day, according the economic consulting firm IHS Global Insight.
The figure translates to about $12.5 million an hour, or roughly $1.6 billion a week, while the government is closed.
...
How much did the last government shutdowns of 1995-96 cost us?
The Office of Management and Budget said at the time that the 26-day combined closure had a $1.4 billion price tag — or roughly $2.1 billion in today’s dollars, according to the Pew Research Center.

The only thing costing this nation during the shutdown is Obama paying for barricades and now all the government non essentials have to squeeze that 100K a little tighter.

BTW , what we'd ordinarily spend isn't being spent. Unless the government plans to reto pay or allow unemployment benefits for the non essentials. Figures don't lie but liars figure.

Wow, more of those conservative critical thinking skills in action.
The $300 million per day is ON TOP OF what we'd ordinarily spend. It's how much EXTRA the shutdown is costing the nation.

We need an intelligent governor in office ! LMAO!

GOP Gov. Corbett compares gay marriage to incest

Yes folks this guy thinks that if a brother and sister get married ,it's a gay marriage !!
LMAO !!

This is the same clown that told this..........

It’s not the first time Corbett has faced backlash over wayward remarks. In May, Democrats seized on his response to a question about whether he had any Latino staff members.“No, we do not have any staff members in there. If you can find us one, please let me know,” Corbett joked. And Corbett has also had to explain his reasoning that the state’s high unemployment was due to potential workers failing drug tests.

LMAO!

While Pennsylvania is a crucial swing state, after 2010, it’s trended Democratic. President Obama won the state 52%-47%, and also carried the state by 10 points in 2008. In 2012, Democratic Sen. Bob Casey was also re-elected, 54%-45%.

Even Republicans are privately worrying about Corbett’s difficulty in keeping the state in GOP hands next year. National Journal reported in July many GOP insiders are bracing for a ”historic landslide [loss]” and are even rooting that he won’t end up running.

I wonder how it is that Gov. Corbett is so well-informed about brother-sister incest??

Is there something in his family tree that explains this?

IT IS A PRIVILEGE TO SERVE IN WASHINGTON, NOT A RETIREMENT PENSION!

Winds of Change
Warren Buffet is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise. At least 20 if you can. It has to stop somewhere.

In three days, most people in The United States of America will have this message.

This is one idea that really should be passed around

*Congressional Reform Act of 2013

1. No Tenure / No Pension.

A Congressman/woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.

2. Congress (past, present & future) participates in Social Security.

All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.

3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.

4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.

5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.

6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.

7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 12/31/13. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.

Congressmen/women made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and back to work.

If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people then it will only take three days for most people (in the U.S.) to receive the message. Don't you think it's time?

THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!

If you agree with the above, pass it on.

Just another day same as before. Americas private sector still working weekends while the non essentials take the weekend off.

No matter how both sides try to convince America that the shutdown will be catastrophic at Biblical proportions, we are starting to realize why they are called non essential.

100K avg. salary for govt. employees while the rest of us are welcoming the 29hr work week.
