Daughter just called from work to tell me.  So what do you think will happen?

She said they  had several meat packages done today and now they wont be sold.  They work in fresh meat not frozen so that will hurt them.  The ripple effect will be huge if this is long lasting.

Is it due to the shutdown or just a glitch in the system? When I worked at a grocery store, the system would go down sometimes.

I got confused because of the meat thing she said after this, I thought it was PA related.

I have heard nothing in the news about this.  If this was taken down it would be all over the place.

And it would be purely a choice by the President to do this.  Federal taxes havent stopped being taken out of my paycheck.  So there is money going into the Government every single day.

So the "shutdown" is really a bunch of crap to begin with, there is so much of the Government still running that everything that DOES get shut down is done so by design to get people riled up.

Shop keeper up the road said it was about the shutdown.  The business where my daughter works cannot get through to anyone

If EBT weren't working because of the government shutdown, it would be all over the news with the amount of people who use it.
