Well, if you are receiving a tax refund and haven't received it, you won't until the end of the year (at the earliest) because we're furloughing the Treasury Department. And if you own a business like me and pay corporate and individual taxes good luck because the many questions you and your accountant need answered will go unanswered because no one from the government will be available to take your calls.
That's why I file my taxes on the 2nd of January every year; I get my refund by the 1st of Feb.

Does anyone think that the government really is going to melt down and fold with a 2% budget cut like these fools in DC are all warning is going to happen ? This political grandstanding against ever doing anything to reduce the govs runaway spending habits is laughable. So far we can't fuel the navys ships, 800,000 gov employees face furloughs, other gov depts may have to stop services for a freaking 2% belt tightening ? The USA is run by a bunch of 3 year olds, I am waiting for obamas threat like a few years ago to resurface that seniors SS and veterans benefits will have to wait because the belt tightening is just too severe. Don't ever hear about foodstamp or medicaid or welfare or foreign aid taking a hit, just the politically convenient. USA government, ship of fools.

Every working american had a 2% budget cut Jan 1st with the FICA tax deduction running out this year resulting in the 2% additional tax hitting every paycheck. I haven't seen American society melt down like obama threatens the gubbmint will meltdown if they're forced into a 2% cut. Spend spend spend, don't mess with obamas credit limit or he'll stamp his little feet and hold his breath, government is run by immature morons.

There once was a time when both parties would cooperate for the good of the country but evidently, thanks to the rethugs, that time has passed!

A year and a half ago Boehner was in favor of the sequester.
He thought it was a good idea.
What has made him change his mind?
Pure politics?
So did Obama, it was Obama's idea.

Yep, about the same time a blue dress became important and libs thought party was more important than country.
