  • I am mixed about it. I want to stay informed but i am sick of hearing about it. I also want to know if my hubby is going to get paid or not.

  • You aren't being a bitch... You are being honest... I'm tired of all the panicked speculation of people thinking they aren't going to get their checks....

  • I doubt it will happen. But, in the event it does, many things will go on as usual since they are automatically set in computers to do so. The fear that the Dems had out there yesterday was totally uncalled for and just a way to pass the blame onto the Repubs and Independents. Seniors won't die from hunger, I doubt schoools will close, kids won't be hungry at school. The ones hurting will be the Dems for their outright, blatant BS. And, yes, I said Dems because yesterday they were all over all the news channels passing the buck instead of working to solve the troubles of our country.

  • they are possibly going to stop paying military personnel but still deploy them and send the ones here to work without pay we will get reimbursed when it starts up again but this could really hurt alot of us in the long run, but seriuosly it hasn't happend yet and proabably wont and people are acting like the apocolypse is comng if you plan and budget yourself out rigth this shouldnt be a problem and i can also see the irritation about sending our men out to war and not paying them for it but come on it's not like we're NEVER gonna get paid and again if you manage your money right you shouldn't worry. now yes if some major catastraphe thats unforrseen happens that could be bad but you knew these things could happen when you joined the military so stop the bitching already!!
