how has it affected you?
might not get paid next month.
The govt not paying disabled vets..... ummm humm.
As i've heard it put best:We are just doing today what will happen down the road if our government doesn't realize the taxpayers are not a bottomless well of money.
17 Trillion will become 30 trillion and we have financial collapse just like if you personally spend more on your racing and life than you bring in. The difference is our government can't apply to China for wellfare. If I live long enough, I'll need to learn Chineese. (Have to learn how to spell it too.)
Our politians give welfare and other govt subsidies for votes. Anything to stay in power and keep their special powers, like a waver so the don't have to have Obamacare and also keep getting paid during a gov't shutdown.
I eat desert last. I also perfer to get a small cavity fixed before needing a painful implant. I would rather get through the pain of balancing a budget and fixing a minus 17 trillion dollar debt now than a 30 Trillion debt later. Course, I work for a living and I've never taken any form of gov't assistance. (Even when I qualified for and really needed it.)
With that said, I wish both sides would negotiate and the Republicans give in on Obamocare and the Dems at least give up on all the "special waviers" they've given themselves and friends to opt out of Obamacare. (They already cashed in the votes, so why not?). Obamacare will prove unworkable and theirfore unpopular anyway. Just do the math.
