    Last we heard was that VA payments will still go out. It is one thing to not pay lazy, good for nothing, government employees, but if you fuck with veterans or old people shit hits the fan. At least that seems to be the mentality of politicians.

    I hope this doesn't mess up Hulky's VA payment. We need it for rent tomorrow!

    Ok, it appears that VA disability compensation payments will not be impacted by the shutdown. Thank GAWD!

    Now if only DFAS would be equally unaffected, I might still get paid on Thursday...

    Furloughed again. [sarc]Yippee!![/sarc]

    But I did get my VA deposit, so at least the mortgage payment is safe. Next hurdle: paycheck on Thursday??? And then I have to figure out what to do about daycare... have to keep paying it or I lose my spot. And if I'm paying for it, the kids are going... We have money set aside (enough to cover almost 2 pay periods) but it was ear marked for something else. Hopefully we don't have to dip into it too far.

    Sorry, Jenn -- the whole thing sucks!

    Our government has their heads so far up.............. well, you get the picture.

    Does this apply to their paychecks as well?

    And why the hell are they exempt from Obamacare? I love our country......... but I hate where the politicians are taking it. I say clean the slate and start over!

    They aren't exempt from the healthcare law. They already have an excellent health care package, though, so there is no reason for them to go on the exchanges.

    Congress is still being paid, as are most of the other overpriced fluff in Washington. The furlough only applies to humans in far less necessary jobs like security.
