  • Military will be retroactively paid, but those government employees that are furloughed will not receive back pay.


    My dh had to tell his civilian workers today that IF the government shuts down they will have no more than 4 hours to come in the beginning of the day Monday to collect ALL of their belongings, clean out their desks, etc ... If they come back on base/work or attempt to access work emails they could risk being fired immediately when the government passes a budget...  Yikes...

  • http://www.cnn.com/interactive/2011/04/politics/interactive.govt.shutdown.list/index.html

    Above is the listing of what will close and what will stay open.
    Military and government employees could potentially only get paid partial pay on the 15th.
    The Democrats and Republicans are in a power struggle right now over a few billion dollars.
    If they do not agree by 12:01 AM tomorrow (Saturday), federal government shuts down until an agreement can be reached.

  • They're still arguing over issues like whether or not Planned Parenthood should get federal funding and if the EPA should be allowed to regulate Greenhouse gases, so they cannot pass a budget, so most governmental services cease until they do.

  • I honestly thought the resolution that passed in the house (the one that would guarantee military pay for a year) would have passed the Senate and Obama would have signed it.... Talk about a CROCK...
