Barack Obama will continue to be paid during a government shutdown.

Congress will also be paid and will continue to operate at close to normal levels during a government shutdown.

In all probability, all government employees will eventually receive any pay that is missed during a government shutdown.

16 things you need to know

#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.

#3 The Obama administration is anticipating "significantly lower staffing levels" at the White House if a shutdown happens.

It must be nice to get paid to travel the world and not have to do a damn thing!

Hopefully they will shut down permanently!

However not to worry Congress will pass some emergency thousand page bill no one has read and all will be well... Your government is looking out for you!

If they are non essential, what the hell are the doing there to begin with? Good. Shut them down. I don't care anymore. By the way, I think your thread title is sensationalistic bs. Correct me if I'm wrong.

This is just a rehashing of what went on this past April.

I don't know if the OP is confused or what but this is old news. The shutdown was averted.

agreed, this thread sounds like old news. but, it is quite obvious what the govt. allows itself to get so close to deadlines for. STEPS TO RULE THE WORLD.
1) allow a very near deadline event to occur with no real solution.
2)write a bill that noone has time to read with as many freedom and right removals as possible.
3)propose that because youre so close to deadline the votes must be cast immediately.
4)explain (illigitametly) what is in the bill to the public without showing the negative implication whatso ever
5)force a vote on the bill by uninformed/misinformed congressmen/women and senators.

this waiting until the last minute isnt to get the job done right, it propogated to remove rights and freedoms from the people without regard.
