According to the White House they won't be paid if the Gov shuts down. This whole thing is political. Dems had time to come up with a spending bill before Repubs were seated. They made the choice not to so they could get to this point. They are counting on the American citizens to be angry and blame Repubs for this since they ate up the whole party of no thing they spread around. This is calculated and the threats from the White House that the military won't be paid and the elderly are going to starve are to create emotion and anger. I guess Dems are no better than Repubs when it comes to fear mongering.

"U.S. troops would be paid through Friday, but after that, paychecks to members of the military, including those in war zones, would stop. The National Institutes of Health would stop accepting new patients and would put clinical trials on hold."
Glad ya'll will be fine though Gammie.
