  • It would have very much affected my family. DH is military. We would have only gotten half a pay check on april 15th and then if it wasn't resolved by 1 May we would not have gotten paid again until it was resolved. So yes, very much would have affected us. Thank God it didn't happen, we would have been in a really tough position!

  • OP...

    Shutdown Averted...Battle Continues

    Eleventh-hour budget compromise keeps the government 'open for business' through the end of the fiscal year,

    Just sayin!!  :o)

  • Why are we still asking this question?

  • The last one didn't. It was over the weekend (like this one would have been), and I knew no difference. My BIL is a soil conservationist with the gov't. He has been one since 1979. The last furlough made him use 2 days of his vacation. It isn't the 'big scary' the dems and the Obamamedia want us to think it is. The gov't shuts down every weekend and every fed. holiday.

  • Why are you replying if youre going to be rude?

    Just asking. Why are you still asking this question? The shutdown is no longer a threat, so...?

  • They did not have a shut down. Good thing. Too many people effected.

  • I do not think the Government shut down would directly effect me.

  • Well, it could still be a threat, just not at this moment. Yes, we would be affected. Depending on how long it was shut down. Hubby is military, his pay would be either cut, or taken for a time. It would also affect his soldiers, which would have a direct affect on him immediately.
