  •  Nice summary (11+ / 0-)

    Great job is bringing the crisis down to ideologies and total lack of either common sense and compassion.  If this goes long enough for those 30 days notices to kick in and people starting feeling that 20% pay cut - all hell will break loose.

    I would not be surprised to see R's being stupid enough to let it begin just until they realize the first cuts will be service and supply contracts and very much more than 8-10% as agencies try to lessen the impact on staff by "saving" more elsewhere in their budget.

    In God we trust, All others we monitor -AFTAC (-2.75, -2.67)

      inadvertent or no, as you've spelled it in the head of the post.

      As in, "Waiter, what's this pube doing in my soup?"

      And yes, GOPers have no escape hatch available to them on the secluster.  Problem is, neither does the nation.  Gonna be a long winter round here.
