How a government shutdown would affect you

Sep 23, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: Click Orlando

Just over a week remains. If the Democrats and Republicans don't stop bickering and agree to how the U.S. should pay its bills, the federal government will shut down, come Oct. 1. Shutdowns don't come cheap.

The despicable Senate leader Harry Reid lies through his teeth as Obama keep giving waivers to 'preferred Americans over the regular Americans and delay the application of the law on some major issues including the employees portion while he decided to force the low through his IRS henchmen on the conservative Americans that he hurts and oppresses. There is nothing lawful with the Obama scam health care that has no doctors no hospitals and no medication to thirty million faceless and nameless foreign illegal that Obama needs their votes in return for free food stamps and free Obama care. Obama is using the rules of the Jungle or pick and choose and provide favors to his voters on the back of the hard working conservatives that will have to deal with IRS corrupt henchmen of Obama who treat them as the enemies of America. It is time to follow Ted Cruz and save America from the liberal anarchist led by Obama Reid and Pelosi that drive America over the cliff to its bankruptcy and disastrous health scam that could kill millions of American elderly and sick.

Ted Cruz is just the guy to put the brakes on barry's agenda to destroy this country, and turn us all into victims. Harry Reid is a nazi who should be in prison along with Pelosi.

Nothing will happen with a government shutdown, except a bunch of freeloading jokers spending their days taking breaks and chatting will have to look for other work. That's if the legislature has the balls to keep the cutbacks permanent. Just imagine the terrible stress people like my sister will experience, not being able to save thousands of dollars on her managed disability (increased through a fake separation with her disabled husband), then going on extended vacations to keep from having to show all the assets she has. Oh, the inconvenience!

The problem is, always was, the government. It picks winners and losers in society, with the help of borrowed money to make things happen, and new strange laws. GOP wants to pick its winners and losers in society just as much as Democrat politicians want to do. We are governed by un-American scum. This angers the people and therefore gun control is needed. The politicians are running scared. It's not your safety they are worried about.

Shut it down. Throw away the key. Guns for every one. The future is what we make it. We are not victims to chance. We are Americans. The tea party is the only movement that is on our side in today's politics. No subsidies to banks and corporate pigs.

Budget problems, get rid of a few hundred thousand IRS and Gov agency employees that do absolutely nothing for us. Control free stuf to people who dont need it. Cut outrages Gov spending, vacations. Problem solved.

Hard to believe these are serious responses. It makes me shake my head and laugh to think that people "think" this way. You are joking, aren't you ?

These are responses from real people who don't live in la la land like you. Come join us in reality for awhile.

Why would I want to join you and share in the mindframe you "real people" walk around with. My god, what a pathetic, angry outlook you doom yourselves with. I see nothing to gain from carrying around such anger.

If you're not angry at your government, you're not paying attention. Go back to sleep.

As you age, you realize that the Beatles hit it pretty square: "Oh bla di, oh blah da', la la la la life goes on." You can choose to be angry and fight, fight, fight. Or you can choose to understand that being angry only perpetuates your anger. Look after yourself, and look to the sky now and then.

Why ask that question here ? Do a search on it and find out.

Only certain parks are closed for certain people. If you're a 90 year old WW2 vet who wants to visit a memorial that pays tribute to you and your fallen friends who died fighting for this country, you're out of luck. If on the other hand, you're an illegal alien who wants to protest what a rotten country the USA is, on federal property, then Obama will be glad to lay out a red carpet for you and allow you to do so.

Ted f-ing Cruz !! Are you kidding me ? Anytime his name is used in a post, the point trying to be made instantly loses any credibility.

I do hope Republicans get behind him. He will insure that the Republican Party will continue it's slide into irrelevance.

In another year or two, he'll be making the rounds with Bachman, Palin, and Coulter.

You are hilarious.

but sad

How disappointed will you be when Obama leaves office, proving he had absolutely no intention of some kind of Socialist takeover ?

WIll you be really sad when your psychotic dream - with NO basis in observable reality - how sad will you be when it does not come true?
