This really makes me sick!

There are few things that will get me riled up, but this is definitely one of them!

About 3.8 million vets won't receive their disability benefits if the shutdown continues! 

Shutdown could hit millions of vets.

Your spouse won't get paid either if they don't do something with the debt ceiling by the 17th.  No one will.

i was thinking the same thing. While this sucks for Vets it also sucks for AD members, reserve members and other government workers. Really this whole shutdown makes me sick.

Yep. And not only will vets not get their checks but the claims process is at a stand still as well. Along with some of the speciality care.

If the debt ceiling issue is not resolved we will all be with out pay, regardless of what the POTUS signed. If there is no money, there is no money. Vets, AD, Gurard, DoD, Government workers etc.... No one will be paid.

Dude, these guys will seriously need to be put in protective custody if that happens. . . every single last one of them.  There will be riots in the streets, it will not be good.  I doubt they're going to go there.. . .
