Hold on now folks.
Congress has to make a CR (Continuing Resolution) to keep the government itself open.
Indeed Brohner has indicated in the news that he has to have the House follow through on return from Vacation in September to give the Government just enough borrowed money to continue to stay open.
If Congress disregards the speaker, they can deny a CR and pull any Obamacare plus other funding that will result in the Government being shut down.
THAT I think is the Big REGION III Issue coming up. The Riots, Insurrection and Civil Disobediance that will happen the day that Uncle Sam Closes everything and no one gets paid anything. No social security, NO SNAP no nothing.
I have a little bit of savings and can ride out a shutdown... but I would say that there are simply just too many hungry and angry people on too little money. Shut them off you have a REAL problem. WHen I run out of money, that's it. I will have to cut the net and not before I cut everything else.
I have decided the Tree is now infested with Trolls intent on destroying anyone who dares talk openly on these forums.
I will no longer be posting or logging on to the tree. My time is over here.
Some of you will celebrate. I will not be around to hear of it.
