Do you have a government employee in your family?
My DH works for the government. I wish the House would get its act together. The president already said he would veto any spending bill that had lines in it that were specific the Affordable Care Act("ObamaCare"). My DH has not gotten a pay increase for 3 years, but yet everything else is going up. I know I should be glad that he still has a job, but I am pissed.
Do they want the govenment to close? How many non-goverment jobs will be affected to? The President has said that he will veto it, but it has been sent to the Senate anyway(and it is unlikely to pass there). Get a clue, even many in his party are telling him to "put up or shut up".
If he is really that against "ObamaCare", he can keep fighting it, but leave it out of the spending bill.
This is not a debate about the Affordable Care Act, but the impending government shut down. Will you or any one you know be affected by a shut down?
