Either President BO is set on using scare tactics, he is ignorant or he is a bald faced liar.

There are no other options for this stupid, uneducated, ill-informed statement:

"And I think people should be careful about being too loose in terms of talking about a government shutdown, because this has — this is not an abstraction. People don’t get their Social Security checks. They don’t get their veterans payments. "

He's such a brilliant man!

That statement is simply not true.


In the last "government shut-down," during the Clinton administration, those parts of the government that are required by law to do certain things did them.

And Social Security checks and veterans' payments are required by law.

So stop fretting!

If there is a government shut-down, Social Security recipients and veterans will still get their spite of the stupidity of the president.

You liberal/progressives will believe anything, won't you?

You elected an amateur.

I for one would look forward to a furlough. I could use the rest.

It doesn't appear to be a shut down but a slow decline in spending. It looks like a compromise is reached that will save $4bil in a two week extension. The Republican led congress can continue cutting in $4bil increments and two week extensions until the bill already passed by the house is met.

That would definitely be the hard way but America demands cuts and demands that the government figure out how to live within its means. This will take some time to get there but demand we must.
