  • Maybe, but probably not as much as I am effected by this horrible economy and inflation.  I don't work for the government though.

  • I will, we got a half check and it was just enough to cover rent. Now we don't got nothing. I am hopeing and praying this doesn't happen it could spin this country in a down spiral faster.

  • Yup some of my house sales wont be able to close because of no HUD or FHA loan underwriters working if they shut down. Register to vote Lady's and VOTE EVERYONE OF THESE ASSHOLE LAW MAKERS OUT OF OFFICE NEXT ELECTION!!! We CAN make a difference!!!

  • Wow anon that is uncalled for. It is not just gov workers that will struggle from this....I live in a small town that is run by military....if the military does not get paid all the businesses will shut down. The town already looses half of the businesses with a deployment.

    I am an army wife and this is hitting hard. We are suposed to get half our check...and that dosnt cover the bills we have to pay with this check. We can work paying the main things like eletric and water but other then that we cant pay. We were able to talk to usaa and get a hold on our payment for our insurance. But if this last through next month then we will be kicked out of our home, loose our car, and have collectors calling because we cant pay the bills. And its crap that my husband still has to go to work without pay....I thought we got rid of slavery.
