Potential Government Shut Down
 
I rarely come to this form but I know a lot of you are well versed on Govt affairs.


What is everyone's thoughts on the potential shut down?

I don't think a shutdown is going to happen. They just passed a two week stop gap to keep things rolling and Obama dispatched Biden to work with Republicans on the Hill to get a long-term budget proposal in place.

To early to tell what will happen 2 weeks from now. The Rep. seem set on making cuts and Obama seems set on spending so who knows if the two can come together. What people forget is this is because the dems never passed a budget last year. That probably is now working against them sense thay lost so many seats.

I'm looking forward to seeing gov employees getting paid to do no work for a few weeks.

As a government employee, I assure you we currently do no work and get paid.

I rather like seeing uncle sam pay his employees go on a few weeks of vacation on your dime. 400 million is nothing to ballers like him and I.

This shutdown is a little scary, especially if it becomes a prolonged thing (which I doubt.) While the govies typically get retroactive pay from the time missed, their contractor counterparts do not get that pay. Luckily it looks as if I'll be deemed 'essential personnel' but some of my fellow contractors won't be so lucky.

I had gone as far as to line up some part time work if the stoppage went over a week. Mainly just to keep me from getting bored at home...

Highly doubt there will be a full shutdown. If no agreement is reached they usually extend the previous years budget.
