‘Shutdown: Here Is What Will Happen If Congress Doesn’t Get Its Act Together By Monday’

‘Air traffic controllers will keep the planes in the sky, seniors will receive their Medicare and Social Security checks and the unemployed will continue to see benefits, other services will begin to dry up the longer the shutdown continues’.

‘Services that are not subject to yearly appropriations — so-called mandatory spending — will continue functioning and self-funding agencies like the Postal Services could still deliver mail’.

‘But close to a million federal workers performing tasks that are deemed non-essential could be furloughed, leading to delays and shutdowns in the following services’:

‘FINANCIAL SERVICES. The Small Business Administration will stop making loans, federal home loan guarantees will likely go on hold, and students applying for financial aid could also see delays and backlogs in applications’.

‘ARMED FORCES. U.S. troops serving at home and abroad could stop receiving paychecks if the shutdown continues for an extended period and changes of station would also be delayed and facility and weapons maintenance would be suspended. Families back home would also be impacted’.

‘HEALTH CARE. The National Institutes of Health will stop accepting new patients and delay or stop clinical trials. Medicare and the Veterans administration will continue paying out benefits, but new filers could face delays and doctors and hospitals may also have to wait for reimbursements’.

‘PUBLIC SAFETY. The Environmental Protection Agency would stop reviewing environmental impact statements and food inspectors would stop conducting workplace inspections unless there is an imminent danger. The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, and Firearms could stop processing applications for permits’.

‘SECURITY AND TRAVEL. The Department of Homeland Security would suspend the E-Verify program, which helps businesses determine the eligibility of employees, creating hiring delays. The State Department will also likely halt new passport and visa applications’.

‘PARKS AND RECREATION. The National Park Service sites and the Smithsonian Institution will be shutdown. During the 1990s, 368 sites closed down and approximately 7 million visitors denied entry’.

    Why do they keep threatening on doing this? Either quit it or go ahead and shut it down!! I remember when I was a federal government employee … not a happy memory!!

    • The Government will shut down. Or parts of it. Like the sequester, very, very little comes to a complete halt.
      Just small things. Given enough time, those small things would become big things.
      But when you add enough small things together, defunding planned parenthood, the over sight of SEC, parts of the EPA, parts of Obamacare, cut food stamps…you start getting the collective effect of slowing the over all economy.
      Couple the slowing with a possible default or at the very least bringing us to the edge…the ‘slow recovery becomes the beginning of another recession.

      • .. and you wonder why! The only reason I see it the same one when Obama was elected 2008 … make him fail by making the country fail.
        And they call themselves lawmakers and lovers of this country!
