Obama Administration Considering Government Shut-Down Strategy

My first reaction is to say go ahead and shut it down. Thinking about it a little more, their idea of a shutdown is stopping social security for old people, military pay, air traffic controllers, and anything else that hurts people. It won't actually shut down the EPA, OSHA, the 90 spy organizations reading this, stop the private white house concerts or obama's 100 million dollar vacations, or slow the flow of graft money to fraudulent green energy corps. Most of the big buck govt employees will get paid anyway. You want to shut it down, go for it, just do it all of the way.

By law they cannot halt Social Security Paychecks, Veterans Paychecks, withhold Military Pay for more than a couple of weeks, not have Air Traffic Controllers. They can halt the pay of Congress, the Administration, Food Stamps, all the programs funding illegals and those that choose not to work, close down most Federal buildings. They can shut down the EPA, NSA, IRS, OSHA, all of the vacations that Obama and his family take, etc, etc!

Correct law SS, Vet pay, and all necessary payments MUST be made; however (and yes, there is a however) when has obama EVER followed ANY law. The really scary thing is that obama is such a b*sturd that he would absolutely delight in withholding SS and vet pay etc. even though NO ONE HAS GIVEN HIM ANY AUTHORITY TO DO SO.
