Who cares if it shuts down? Do you?


Oh my God. You really can't understand what closing the government does, do you? First, all those people will be told to go home for the weeks or months and then Congress will vote to pay them for that time. So, you get to pay for work you are not getting. 

 

Then, anyone required to work will not get a paycheck during that time. So, anyone living on the edge will have to quit and go elsewhere. When the government comes back, they will have to hire thousands of new staff, train them, and wait for them to become experienced. A huge waste. 

 

No passports will be processed  so if your company  planned to send the critical person overseas in a few weeks or months, they may get caught in the backlog. 

 

Income tax audits will stop and no tax help will be available. Leave it to the Republicans to stop our funding sources.  

 

Federal contractors will stop being paid and they will lay off their staff.  So, all those folks who keep the lights on are going to be looking for a new paycheck in the interim. They are also not covered by the retroactive pay reimbursement. 

 

Yeah. I can see why we never, ever, let Republicans run the country. They can't keep it open and don't understand why they should.

Anyone with good sense does and yes, that includes me.


So, you want it open because you have good sense but don't know why you want it opened.  I understand now.

Will anyone notice that the government is shut down?  If you are traveling to a National Park, you may notice but otherwise, the world keeps spinning.

You mean............telling them to impeach a President who brags about shutting down the government? 


Have you noticed how few INDIVIDUAL-1 supporters have posted since INDIVIDUAL-1 was spanked by NANCY PELOSI?

 

The best anyone in INDIVIDUAL-1'S camp has done recently is to have repeatedly posted a FALSE MEME IMAGE of someone's mansion with a wall around it and say it was Pelosi's.

 

I think it is beginning to sink in that the INDIVIDUAL-1 ship has sprung leaks everywhere and is sinking much faster than they can bail water out.

 

Oh, they got a problem with the other BAIL too.
