  • That is our only income along with most of the other families in my neighborhood. How do they expect us to pay our bills if they aren't paying us? I'm so scared.

  • "It remained unclear Tuesday whether 1.4 million active-duty troops will receive paychecks on April 15 as a top Pentagon spokesman said the Defense Department continues work on plans for a possible government shutdown on Friday."

  • Ok I read the rest of that article. It sounds like worse case, we have to wait until an agreement on spending is made and then we'll receive pay after that. Thank God for a nest egg.
