You are so right - what's the big deal regarding a government shutdown - it's a big deal because Obama and his minions tell us that the elderly, soldiers, retirees and the disabled won’t be paid. That's always their mantra. Same on the state and local level...governement cuts, <gasp> no more police and fire coverage...never mentioned are the mulitmillion dollar pet projects for "smart" meters, and the like.
You can’t tell me that federal agencies can’t all find 10% in administrative expenses to cut. We are pissing so much money away - look at this list:
A-Z Index of U.S. Government Departments and Agencies:
The truth is that everyone is making wild ass guesses and nobody really has any clue what the economy will look like two, three, and certainly not four years into the future. But, no reasonable person disagrees that reducing our national debt is a necessity.
I do know that Obama's recent shameless threatening of the elderly, disabled, retirees and veterans is no way to go.
