Default What does a " government shut down really mean " ?

What actually would happen if the government really did not agree on a budget and entered into a government shut down ? Would Social Security be threatened, would it affect the actual operation of government offices ? Would it effect state as well as federal ? Or would it actually amount to a hill of beans to anyone except a bunch of politicans trying to scare the public for political gain. Personally I really don't believe any word that comes out of Obama's mouth or for that matter out of any of our political leaders mouth's. The term leader is probably a error on my part.

It means vacation for all people involved with it until the budget is figured out. Then when they come back they get paid for that time anyway. What a scam!

It would be a "Green" day of epic proportions. Millions of gallons of gas would go unburned.

I will be really shocked to see any payback if there is a shutdown but, then again we have some really ignorant people on both sides up there. I mean how can you not come together for THE PEOPLE and get some resolution on this. What signal do you send to other countries when your suppose to be the world power. Yes I apent 25 years in the military and thought I would never see this type of shit going on up there.

The Army times had a recent article stating that the Commissary would be run by Active Duty Soldiers since many of the positions are GS. I have not read a clear answer either on who will get paid. I heard the deployed Troops would then I heard we all would. I remember being deployed in 1995 when this happened and I still got paid. I do know that all the civilians that work in our building are planning on a shutdown. I heard the same thing while shopping at the Commissary by the cashiers.

It means you walk up to the doors of the National Air & Space Museum and the doors are locked.
