hmm. well it seems like the vouchers they already issued will be honored. this will effect what exactly, next month's vouchers if there is no resolution to the shut down? I don't receive any assistance, so I'm not sure how often those vouchers are given to families.

That is such crap. Congress can affordbto add extra barriers and security to natioanl monuments to keep people out, aford to continue running their own recreation, and afford to open the National Mall to a pro-immigration protest ... but "have no choice" but to shut down WIC and NIH? Anybody falling for the aAdministrations ploy needs a reality check.

It must be a local thing. The wic here says they are doing business as normal and it will only affect them if it goes into November and then they will have to cut back.
