Closing of the gov would be like not paying out the welfare checks for a couple of months. Look at the money saved! I am all for it. I guess you noticed the Gestapo TSA fondlers are still going to be doing their body cavity slave training searches on American citizens at the airports. I bet the gun grabbers are still working too.

Look at all the functions of government that would be slowed or stopped. Like food inspection.

Walmart for one

Took me 12 seconds to find this...

"A walmart distribution center in Macclenny, Florida received $9 million in government subsidies in the form of free land, government-funded recruitment and training of employees, targeted tax breaks, and housing subsidies for employees allowing them to be paid significantly lower wages. A study by Good Jobs First found that 244 Wal-Marts around the country had received over $1 billion in government favors."

Is this payment subject to the shutdown or has it already been made?

Took me 2 seconds to think of this question.

Free Medical Cards? Someone else is having money taken from them to pay for those "free medical Cards" I am sure they had rather spend their money on their family instead of some deadbeat

Democrats and Republicans are equally to blame. This dick measuring contest has become an embarrassment.

How about passing a damn budget so this doesn't happen every quarter?

Really? How about you get laid off for at least a week knowing you're not getting paid and unable to pay your house payment, car payment, and all the things you've worked hard for, then let's hear you talk...oh wait, you're probably one of those deadbeats sitting at the house that I'm NOT PAYING FOR because I'm laid off from the government. Next time to should think about what you say. Enforce you say it. At this point, I'm hoping the whole economy crashes!

It`s only free if the care provider doesn`t charge dumbass.

Please post the clinic that don`t pay electric bills and don`t pay nurses and Dr`s or charge for resources and medical equipment or medicine.

Maybe you`d like to be the 1st to put kids through medical school, eat the tuition, buy a building, pay for property and practice insur, buy equip and medicines out of pocket and staff to run it. Then you can say it`s free.
You`re such a dickhole.

Julie I don't know what to think of you. First, if you are so freakin stupid that you haven't saved money in case you have problems then maybe it is your stupidity that has put our government into the rathole position its in.

Secondly, having spent most of my life around here quit your bitchin about being laid off. I don't think you will find much sympathy from coal miners, steel workers, construction workers and factory workers - all of whom have endured layoffs and PAY CUTS while Feds continue to get their annual increases.

The last "shutdown" was in 1995 and NO FEDERAL EMPLOYEE LOST A PENNY IN COMPENSATION! EVERY LAST ONE, whether a deadbeat goof-off or hard working civil servant, got paid their full salary. NO ONE WAS CHARGED AS MUCH AS ONE MINUTE OF ANNUAL OR SICK LEAVE either.

For all I know, you may be a very hardworking and good employee - if you are, then thanks for your service. But sorry, I can't stand the whining and bitching over the shutdown. The problem is the government is spending too damn much money and wasting the vast majority of it. We are in debt to our great grandchildren's eyeballs and headed down the drain at an ever increasing speed.

"Oh, I might miss 5 days of pay and my life is over." Look, get with the real world - there are families out here that go 5 months or more without money. You aren't gods, you don't give God policy, and He doesn't consult you on policy.

I hope the federal government stays shut down until the 2014 Election. Then we can fire the whole damn bunch and put people in there that want to serve this Country and restore it to greatness.

I don't give a crap if they are Republican, Democrat, gay, lesbian, black, white, striped, handicapped, blind, or always wet themselves when someone turns a microwave oven on. I want people that believe in America!
