If the public starts noticing that life goes on as usual without all 3.4 million federal workers, we might get dangerous ideas, like doing without so much government. Politicians don’t want that.
They’d rather have us worry about how America will cope.
does anyone really miss a bunch of federal workers telling us how to live our daily lives without their help ? Of coarse 87% of gov. functions are continuing on as usual..only the more public parts of the government, like parks, veterans benefits, and the NIH are plastered on the news. and they are telling us how this will have dire consequences for us all. The behind the scenes government, that benefits mainly gov. goes on as usual. obama still has his full staff and so does the white house, the IRS is doing OK, as is the HHS dept. and don’t cry for these gov employees asked to go home, they’ll recieve a paycheck all the same just with a little extra vacation time to spend with the family to boot.
don’t panic, this may be a teachable moment for America.
