Just heard on the news that the VA says IF this shut down continues veterans will NOT receive their EARNED benefit checks in 18 days,(meaning my father an Army vet will not be receiving his check) and yet there are still people out there saying this shut down is not hurting anyone??????

Well, if a deal isn't reached on the debt ceiling by Thursday no active duty military member is getting paid either.

your right BOTH parties are to blame but the finger pointing is EXACTLY what they want all of us "average" people to do so that they can be "sneaky"

Hmmm...seriously? Your pointing fingers?

Obama has targeted the veterans. It makes him and any that stand with him lower than low. They have been deemed unessential.

The Dems have just as much blame, BUT when its been proven that some NOT all in the GOP have been planning this its like wow, but again NEITHER party is perfect BUT to partly shut down the government just because you dont get your way is not fair either and it makes ALL what is 535 ppl?? look like bickering childern on the playground and look at what China has said we are now the laughing stock of the world
