No, unfortunately even with the government shut down they have still managed a way to secure entitlements for the non earners while disrupting the tax payers.

No, yet for seniors on SSI and those on SSI or SSID may experience loss or delayed benefits

FOOD ASSISTANCE
The Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants and Children, known as WIC, could shut down. The program provides supplemental food, health care referrals and nutrition education for pregnant women, mothers and their children.
School lunches and breakfasts would continue to be served, and food stamps, known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP, would continue to be distributed. But several smaller feeding programs would not have the money to operate.
White House Press Secretary Jay Carney said senior nutrition grants, which provides meals for 2.5 million elderly Americans, would not be funded in the event of a shutdown.
