#1 Hundreds of thousands of “non-essential” federal workers will be told to stay home during a government shutdown.
#2 Those in the military will not receive paychecks during a government shutdown but they will be required to keep performing their duties.
<Maybe they’ll stop working. It is a volunteer Army, after all, and if one doesn’t get paid, then the FED has reneged on it’s end to PAY for the services of the volunteer. They have then broken the contract 1ST. But thats too logical. The natzi’s would put you in the brig along with other AMERICAN soldiers that WERE doing their JOBS – LTC Lankin, Michael Behenna, and many more. These men are serving behind bars for STANDING UP to the our GOVERNMENT so that they could PROTECT America.>
#3 The Obama administration is anticipating “significantly lower staffing levels” at the White House if a shutdown happens.
<That would be a good thing>
#4 Barack Obama will continue to be paid during a government shutdown.
<RAT! Sycophant! Muslim/Communist! Make no mistake this guy is a Communist first and a Muslim second>
#5 Congress will also be paid and will continue to operate at close to normal levels during a government shutdown.
<All the rats should be getting nothing!>
#6 The Federal Reserve will continue to operate normally during a government shutdown. The Federal Reserve is not part of the U.S. government.
<Whats the “FEDERAL” in Federal Reserve. Nothing it’s and incorporated NAME only. >
#7 In all probability, all government employees will eventually receive any pay that is missed during a government shutdown. During the 5 day U.S. government shutdown back in 1995, approximately 800,000 “non-essential” government employees were told not to come in to work. But eventually they all got paid retroactively anyway.
#8 During a government shutdown, the Department of Homeland Security will suspend operation of its e-Verify system. Employers will be unable to verify the immigration status of job applicants and that could have a substantial negative impact on hiring.
<well that SHOULD make the Progressive Democrats happy. How else would they garner the votes to put them in power?>
#9 The processing of small business loans and FHA mortgages will be delayed during a government shutdown.
<the one thing this illegitimate government loaths is private enterprise. Big business doesn’t count, because once they get to a certain size they become part of the governments machine. >
#10 The U.S. Postal Service will not be affected by a government shutdown. You will continue to get your mail.
<who cares. They are almost obsolete anyway>
#11 According to the Social Security Administration, everyone that is currently receiving Social Security benefits will continue to receive those benefits during a shutdown. New applications will be delayed however.
<Well, they couldn’t stop the paychecks going to all those illegal aliens, who may then get confused as to who to vote for. >
#12 Medicare payments will continue during a government shutdown, but there will be a delay in processing new applications.
<Well, we can’t delay the cash to the illegals, but grandma and grandpa can wait.>
#13 During a government shutdown, the processing of paper tax returns by the IRS would be delayed.
<who files paper? >
#14 If there is a government shutdown, the processing of passport and visa applications could be seriously delayed. This could have a negative impact on the tourism industry.
<oh my. That should give you pause. Sarc. The Dems really don’t want that. They have a nice thing going by allowing illegals to get tourism here so that they can come here and stay or they can come here at 7 months pregers and deliver an American baby. The Constitution never allowed for that, but the illegitimate interpretation of the 14th ammendment still stands even though it was clear that there could be no allegiance to another country and the person had to have LEGAL jurisdiction from a particular STATE. This applied only to SLAVES and the was very clear that a official from another country could not be granted US citizenship either. >
#15 National parks, museums and tourist attractions will be shut down. According to the Washington Post, “about 500,000 visitors could be turned away this weekend alone from the National Zoo and the major Smithsonian museums on the Mall”.
<Thats really not that big of a deal, so it’s ok>
#16 The annual Cherry Blossom Festival parade in Washington D.C. that is scheduled for this weekendwould be cancelled.
<So the Fesitval made it to the top 16? Eh. What a waste of space.>
