The list of collateral effects of a potential government shutdown keeps growing and people are none too pleased about it. Here are just a few of the negative impacts that could arise if Congress and the White House fail to reach an agreement on the budget (click here to view in chart form):
How would a government shutdown anger you?
How about them Chicago Blackhawks, Mr. President?
well they won't be happy untill everyone move's to Mexico. And we elected them to run OUR county?
I bet the IRS will still be running!
No tax refund if you don't have it already.
Washington=wealthy lawyers, wealthy lobbyists, all with an agenda that is basicly to screw everyone else in the country.
Pretty soon amerika will resemble Bangladesh, except for the gated communities for the 1% on top, complete with guard towers to keep the rabble at bay.
Maybe we should all threaten to "shut down". If we don't work there would be no taxes. They would be forced to stay in D.C. until this problem is resolved.
I think all presidents now are more like toilet paper for congress. They catch most of the sh... while congress flushes. But I see you hiding back back in the back like a thief. Obama really isn't to blame. Now Bush..... well I'll just be honest. He was and I'm sure still an idiot. It seems like every time we get a decent president congress just uses them. And we as a nation can't do anything about it. It's alot like false advertisement. America land of the free. When you know if you speak up you are not heard. Congress do nothing but butt heads with each other and still manage to screw everything up.
I agree completely...What is wrong with us??!
The poor don't count.
God bless the decadent rich.
Unionists to the gallows.
Elderly to the Soylent green factories.
Amerika Uber Alles
That list is the best you can come up with?!?! Really goes to show how useless it really is.
If Harry Reid wants a shutdown to make the Democrats look good, he is going to get one. Let's face it folks, the Democrats have greatly fallen out of favor. This administration is about the worst this country has seen in recent memory. I'd even say worse that Carter's reign! Now that is BAD! But I digress – the dems need something in their pocket or else they lose the Senate and the Whitehouse come next election. This is something they can hold onto and finger point at the pubs in the next election. Harry Reid is only slightly less corrupt than Nancy Pelosi.
Yes. my friends, corruption runs amuck in our government. Term limits is part of the solution.
> ruining countless long family road trips
Ha Ha Ha. That's exactly what *has to happen* when we (collectively, as a country), go bankrupt: no more family road trips. Less rest, more work. And thank you previous generations of politicians and voters for spending your children's wealth by borrowing!
Close the borders, seaports and the airports.
Lay off CBP, Border Patrol and air traffic controllers.
Then watch the chaos.
The Obama's are going on another vacation? I guess he needs the rest and relaxation after working so hard to solve all of our nations problems. NOT!
It is time to elect REAL professionals in Congress. Enough is quite enough!
Yeah, send in more lawyers.
We need Dewey, Cheatum and Howe running the show.
I disagree. Do away with congress. Put a president in there who is not rich but smart enough to listen to the people of this country and save what little bit of freedom this country has left.
My commute is going to be much less of a nightmare
This is nothing more than politics, pure and simple. If the members of the House and Senate want to get my attention, let them announce that they will no longer take a salary until the United States Budget is brought into "Black Ink". Every member of the House and Senate is a fraud. They each took over $1.5 Million from pharmaceutical and healthcare insurance companies during the healthcare debate. Give that money, over $800 Million, to the US Treasury, then you will have my attention.
