Well what do you know, the very thing they thought they were going to stop by shutting down the government is going into effect anyway.

Now if only they knew that ahead of time... oh wait... they did.

Guess low information doesn't apply to the Republican members of congress... Willfully ignorant perhaps?

What if they close the federal government and nobody notices? Why do we really need 'non-essential' employees?

Wrong… I receive great health coverage and I was told by my insurance company that the Affordable Care Act has already brought down some cost… and I received a rebate check.

HAPPY OBAMACARE DAY!

I love the way President Obama is poking his finger in the eye of the right-wing tea-baggers as he rubs in the fact that in spite of their frivolous 43 times voting to repeal OBAMACARE, it will go fully into effect in less than an hour from right now, LOL!
On top of that all of the polls show that the right-wing fools will be blamed for the shutdown. And best of all; the poll show that the American people sees the right-wingers as a bunch of crybabies who are throwing a temper tantrum because they can’t get their way.

because the term 'non-essential' is a misnomer, thus the need for quotes around it...

Naah, that dog won't hunt. There's tons of fat to trim. When you're broke and deep in debt, you gotta run lean and bare. Services should be based on what can be currently afforded, not "lets get all we desire now and keep kicking the debt can down the road".

You are a stupid fool!
. Republicans currently in Congress ran their campaigns promising to their base they would shut the government down. There is nothing anybody could do to stop them; it was their plan all along to shut it down just because they could...
. These are mean folks who enjoy hurting/punishing others...
Here is the problem; Obamacare was passed by a Congress that NEVER read the bill in its entirity, or not at all. It was rushed thru. Now WHY in the world would an important bill that would effect a major change in the US Healthcare System be rushed thru?

You are smart enough to know the reason it was rushed. Simple----they Did NOT want the public to know what was in the bill.

Now, in its implementation, ONLY the part affecting individuals that are not wealthy are being enforced. That should be a 2nd Red Flag. Besides, a law has to be enforced in its entirety under the 14th Amendment.

yes, there is much fat to trim at all levels of government, but many of the people labeled 'non-essential, are, in fact, essential to our keeping our nation running in the long term.

Even in shutdown, Feds get overtime, comp time,'Sunday pay'...

Shut down, hell the Senate under Reid only worked 2 days anyway. Who will notice the difference.
